254: DEATH and judgment are behind usby Mrs. J. A. Trench (1843-1925)
1 DEATH and judgment are behind us,
Grace and glory are before;
All the billows rolled o'er Jesus,
There they spent their utmost power.
2 First-fruits of the resurrection,
He is risen from the tomb;
Now we stand in new creation,
Free; because beyond our doom.
3 Jesus died, and we died with Him,
Buried in His grave we lay,
One with Him in resurrection,
Now in Him in heaven's bright day.
