O Praise The Name Anastasis | Hillsong Worship Song

77

The O Praise the Name Anastasis lyrics depict what happened at Calvary and on the Cross. Jesus’ resurrection is our hope.  

Praise The Name (Anastasis)
Praise The Name (Anastasis)

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
