I was listening to my radio 
When something went wrong 
The voice of the announcer 
Suddenly came on He said 
"we interrupt this program with late
Breaking news, Last night they 
Arrested the King of The Jews" 
He said "we take you now to 
Pilate's house where Christ 
Is on trial" It sounded like 
The announcer was wearing a smile 
As he described the accusations 
In the judgement hall 
And How Jesus just stood 
There didn't say nothing at all 
"Get ready everybody, 
The judgement's comin' down"
I held my breath, I closed my eyes 
I didn't make a sound 
"Jesus defeated" was all that he said,
"Guilty, convicted and sentenced to death, 
Soon it will be finished on a cross made of wood 
Looks like its over for good, Jesus defeated"

His next few words 
I could hardly believe, 
He said "we're standing 
Here at Calvary's tree, 
The sky has turned black,
 blood covers the land, 
From the spear in His side 
And the nails in His Hands,
Now some called him a Saviour,
Said He lived without sin,
Some said it did not do much for Him, 
Some called Him Messiah, God's only Son, 
Others shook their heads and 
Said the good die young."
"Jesus defeated" was all that He said 
"Guilty , convicted & now He is dead,
Yes, it is finished on a cross made of wood, 
Looks like it's over for Good,Jesus Defeated"


(spoken) 
Yeah, Jesus is defeated when 
You look at the grave,
Until you see that the 
Stone's been rolled away,
Jesus is defeated when you 
Look at all the pain He had to feel 
Until you read Isaiah 53 and 
It says that's the way we were healed
And Jesus was defeated when you 
Look at everything He went through
And then you realize He went 
Through it for me and you, 
Things in the media they're not 
Always what they seem, 
Jesus is alive, do you know what that means? 
End spoken)


It means, Jesus defeated 
The power of death, 
Oh yes it happened 
Just like He said, 
He bore our sins on 
A cross made of wood
He triumphed over evil for good 
And the one who built 
His kingdom on bondage and fear, 
The one who killed the prophets, 
Left their families in tears,
The father of lies, the author of sin, 
Everybody this just in, it was him ....
JESUS DEFEATED!
