“On Friday a thief”

Yesterday’s quote from Dietrich Bonhoeffer reminded me of these lyrics from a song by John Mark McMillan. Below the video you’ll find a link to McMillan’s commentary on the song.

“On Friday a thief
On Sunday a King
Laid down in grief
But awoke holding keys
To hell on that day
The first born of the slain
The man Jesus Christ
Laid death in his grave.”

– excerpt from “Death in His Grave” by John Mark McMillan

You can read John Mark McMillan’s line-by-line commentary on this song at his blog.
