A Song on the Death of Death

Though I’ve been listening to this song for years, I’m still struck by imagery of Jesus Christ laying death in his grave. Some select lyrics from this song:

...
So three days in darkness slept
The morning sun of righteousness
But rose to shame the throws of death
And overturn his rule
Now daughters and the sons of men
Would not pay their dues again
The debt of blood they owed was rent
When the day rolled anew

On Friday a thief
On Sunday a king
Laid down in grief
But woke with the keys
To hell on that day
First born of the slain
The man Jesus Christ laid
Death in his grave
...
