Victory in Jesus

You have crushed beneath your heel the vile serpent, ¹
You have carried to the grave the black stain; ²
You have torn apart the temple's holy curtain, ³
You have beaten death at death's own game. 
- From "Hosanna" by Andrew Peterson

¹ And I will put enmity between thee [the serpent] and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.  Genesis 3:15
² ...Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures...  I Corinthians 15:3-4
³ Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost.  And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent...  Matthew 27:50-51
...Death is swallowed up in victory.  I Corinthians 15:54
