So long, you wages of sin

Mike made us an Easter mix today. We both like some of those old slightly cheesy songs like “The Easter Song” and “He’s Alive” and “Arise My Love,” so it was fun to listen to those songs on the way to and from church. It’s a good thing we both like those songs, because I can imagine people being quite pained by our choices. My one request was “High Noon.”

But then, in the dark of the grave
The stone rolled away
In the still of the dawn on the greatest of days

High noon in the valley of the shadow
When the shadows were shot through with light
When Jesus took in that breath
And shattered all Death with his life
So long, you wages of sin
Go on, don’t you come back again
I’ve been raised and redeemed
You’ve lost all your sting
To the victor of the battle
High noon in the valley of the shadow

Happy Easter!
