The O Praise the Name Anastasis lyrics depict what happened at Calvary and on the Cross. Jesus’ resurrection is our hope.
I heard this song in church and was immediately drawn to it. I was intrigued by the word “Anástasis” in the title and so I looked it up.
It is Greek for resurrection.
Jesus’ resurrection gave us hope for the future, hope despite our failings.
I saw Christian leaders failed publicly and it dismayed me. But when I turned my eyes to Jesus (like in the lyrics, cast my mind to Calvary), all these do not seem to matter. When I reflect on the story of the Cross, of resurrection, I realised it is a rescue mission for failed people. Praise the name of the One who came to save.
O Praise The Name Anastasis Lyrics
VERSE 1: I cast my mind to Calvary Where Jesus bled and died for me I see His wounds His hands His feet My Saviour on that cursed tree VERSE 2: His body bound and drenched in tears They laid Him down in Joseph's tomb The entrance sealed by heavy stone Messiah still and all alone CHORUS: O praise the Name of the Lord our God O praise His Name forevermore For endless days we will sing Your praise Oh Lord oh Lord our God VERSE 3: And then on the third at break of dawn The Son of heaven rose again O trampled death where is your sting The angels roar for Christ the King VERSE 4: He shall return in robes of white The blazing sun shall pierce the night And I will rise among the saints My gaze transfixed on Jesus face

O Praise The Name Anastasis (Chinese Lyrics)
VERSE 1: 我心思想加略山上 耶穌流血為我捨身 見祂傷痕在祂手腳 救主掛在那木頭上 VERSE 2: 布裹屍首 淚水浸透 安放祂在約瑟墓裏 巨石封閉在墓道口 彌賽亞祂獨自安息 CHORUS: 讚美祂名 我的主我神 讚美祂名 直到永遠 永無止境 高唱讚美祢 喔主 我主我神 VERSE 3: 在第三日黎明之時 天國之子祂已復活 死亡毒鉤全被勝過 天使高唱基督是王 VERSE 4: 身穿白袍 祂將再臨 耀眼陽光穿透黑暗 與眾聖徒一同復活 眼中只有耶穌容顏
