Petra – He Came, He Saw, He Conquered lyrics

Words and music by Bob Hartman
Based on Genesis 3: 15, Matthew 28: 6, John 20: 19, Revelation 6: 2

He came alone into the battle
He knew nobody else could face His foe
He left His throne, He left His glory
He knew nobody else could ever go
He called the bluff, He took the challenge
He came into this world to seek and save
No one could know, no one could fathom
The way to win was only through the grave
They laid Him in His tomb
They thought they'd sealed His doom
But He rose
He rose!

He came, He saw, He conquered death and hell
He came, He saw, He is alive and well
He was, He is, and only He forgives
He died, He rose, He lives
He came, He saw, He conquered!

The doors were locked, they heard Him knocking
They were afraid they would be taken, too
Familiar voice said, "Come and follow"
Come and see the things the Lord can do
They went to where He lay
The stone was rolled away
He rose
He rose!

He came into this world
He saw humanity
He heard the sos
He met the enemy
The enemy was conquered
The enemy was conquered!

    Dear jesus I am so unworthy of your precious sacrifice which you willingly endured on the cross. I repent of my disobedience realizing the great and awesome savior I have in you. You came to set the captive free and to deliver us from being part of the kingdom of darkness. You have conquered lord jesus and by faith I recieve your victory. Thank you jesus for being our eternal champion and king! G. A. G

    Thank you jesus that you came to this earth and you conquered death, hell, and the grave. I just can't find the words to say how greatful I am that you did that for me. Even if I hadda been the only one on this earth you would have died for me B/C I needed A savior to come and make me clean of my sins that I had been carrying around with me all those years. Thank you very much!
