Did Jesus Die in Vain?

Did Jesus die in vain?
The Father said: “Not so!”
He found the work to be complete
Which was performed upon the tree;
And gave a royal seat.

Did Jesus die in vain?
The angels did say: “No.”
With news of joy they told that morn’
Of Jesus’ life and death’s door torn.
He’s worshiped and adored.

Did Jesus die in vain?
The demons wished it so.
His death was deadly to their cause–
Destroying, smashing, overthrowing all,
Tearing victory from their paws.

Did Jesus die in vain?
His children say: “Oh no!”
His death upon that cruel cross
Redeemed us from our greatest loss
To life. Oh, what a cost!

Did Jesus die in vain?
There are those who yet say “yes.”
By ignoring His life, persisting in shame,
Scorning His call, resisting His claim;
For those ones, His death was in vain.
