Ain’t No Grave.. history

Originally written by Claude Ely in 1934 while faced with tuberculosis at age 12
Johnny Cash later covered song following death of spouse and as his health was declining

Bethel’s Cover

9knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death no more hath dominion over him. 10For the death that he died, he died unto sin once: but the life that he liveth, he liveth unto God. 11Even so reckon ye also yourselves to be dead unto sin, but alive unto God in Christ Jesus.

Th

What we believe is this: If we get included in Christ’s sin-conquering death, we also get included in his life-saving resurrection. We know that when Jesus was raised from the dead it was a signal of the end of death-as-the-end. Never again will death have the last word. When Jesus died, he took sin down with him, but alive he brings God down to us. From now on, think of it this way: Sin speaks a dead language that means nothing to you; God speaks your mother tongue, and you hang on every word. You are dead to sin and alive to God. That’s what Jesus did.

Ain’t no Grave takes comfort in knowing;
Christ took our place and died to sin
His resurrection demonstrates that sin and death have been defeated

His resurrection demonstrates that sin and death have been defeated

His resurrection demonstrates that sin and death have been defeatedBeing dead to sin means no longer being under the powerful grip of the love of sin, as the mastery of sin has been broken in our lives
Being dead to sin means no longer being under the powerful grip of the love of sin, as the mastery of sin has been broken in our lives
Being dead to sin means no longer being under the powerful grip of the love of sin, as the mastery of sin has been broken in our lives
No more shame
no more guilt

Verse of Song makes this proclamation:

Oh, shame is a prison as cruel as a grave Shame is a robber and he’s come to take my name Oh, love is my redeemer, lifting me up from the ground Love is the power when my freedom song is found.

Now, we are free to live and live unto God through our Savior, Jesus Christ
