Where is Your Victory?

Death, where is your victory?
Where is your sting?
1 Corinthians 15:55

 
Death,
you have me no longer
in your withered grasp.
The lamb has been slain
and risen again
in more glory
than darkness will ever perceive. 

You have no victory.
He has defeated every effort made
against Him.
Your sting
is but a mild irritant,
because His tomb is empty.

Death,
you have no claim on me.
Break me,
fill me with vile disease,
still I will rise
to walk beside my Lord
in the garden once forsaken.
