The Rose Parade of Resurrection by Dr. J. Vernon McGee

The Rose Parade of Resurrection
Dr. J. Vernon McGee

Flowers sleeping,
Women weeping,
Daylight trembling o'er the hills;
Morning breaking,
Sleepers waking -
Thoughts of life one's being thrills.
Christ is rising,
Death despising,
Stone and seal give way to power;
For One living
Light is giving
To this early, holy hour.
Christ immortal
Breaks the portal
Of the dark and chilly tomb;
By believing,
Him receiving
We are free from death and doom.
Give Him glory,
Tell His story,
How He died for sinners lost;
Fail Him never,
Love Him ever,
He is yours at awful cost.

his feet. The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death. (1 Corinthians 15:20-
26)

might attain unto the resurrection of the dead. (Philippians 3:10, 11)
But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them who are
asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others who have no hope. For if we believe
that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also who sleep in Jesus will God
bring with him. For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we who
are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not precede them who
are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with ...
