But as we sang the chorus, I was reminded that there have already been three glorious days without which we would not be looking forward to this fourth and final day. Some of these days may not seem “glorious,” but in retrospect, they truly brought glory to God and salvation to us.
For those of you unfamiliar with the chorus, here it is (with my “glorious day” calculations):
Living, He loved me (the glorious day of his birth)
Dying, He saved me
Buried, He carried my sins far away (the glorious day of his death and burial)
Rising, He justified freely forever (the glorious day of his resurrection)
One day He's coming
Oh glorious day, oh glorious day (the glorious day of his return)
Below is a link to the entire song.
