The moon and stars they wept
The morning sun was dead
The Savior of the world was fallen
His body on the cross
His blood poured out for us
The weight of every curse upon Him
One final breath He gave
As Heaven looked away
The Son of God was laid in darkness
A battle in the grave
The war on death was waged
It's a shame how beautiful this song is while being so wrong.
The Savior of the world was fallen. 🚫
To be fallen is to have lost.
His Victory was on the cross.
As Heaven looked away. 🚫
Jesus was fulfilling a plan in place from before Creation. Heaven was probably cheering Him on. Or watching "breathlessly".
But no one was turning away.
A battle in the grave. 🚫
The victory was on the cross.
What battle ensued after that?
This is part of a popular heresy that Jesus suffered in hell for us.
It's sad that we sing this in church and play on the radio, promoting false doctrine.
I can imagine Jesus looking down when this is sung thinking, "That's not how it went down! Don't you know what I did?"
