‘O Praise the Name (Anástasis)’ Hillsong UNITED Live Performance

An emotional and moving song details Christ’s spectacular, unceasing love and ultimate sacrifice on the cross. 

The world is lost, filled with fallen people living in sin and shame. However, thanks to God and His magnificent love, He made a way by sending His one and only son to die on the cross, humanity can be redeemed and brought back to Him. 

Not only did Jesus Christ endure a brutal and wholly undeserving death, but He rose days later! He rolled away that stone, walked out of the grave and won the victory over sin and death. Praise God! 

In the video for the song “O Praise the Name (Anástasis), Hillsong UNITED sings about Christ’s horrible death and His resurrection, which changed the entire trajectory of the world. 

In the song’s first verse, the musicians remind us that Christ suffered unbelievable pain and sustained horrible injuries on our behalf. It was on Calvary that Christ shed his blood for the sin of humanity. His hands and feet were pierced and a crown of thorns placed on His head. 

The second verse mentions that after Christ died undeservedly upon that tree, His body was placed in a tomb. A stone was put in front of the grave. However, thankfully, that is not where the story ends.

Three days later, the third verse points out, Christ rose again. Christ defeated death. The stone had been rolled away. All the angels in Heaven roared. Christ the Savior lives! 

Christ, motivated by his astounding love for humanity, underwent an unwarranted and agonizing death upon the cross. As the song’s chorus adds, Christ deserves all praise and worship.

“O praise the Name of the Lord our God
O praise His Name forevermore
For endless days we will sing Your praise”

In addition to the wonderful lyrics about Christ’s death and resurrection, the musicians performed the tune at a special location, according to the video’s description. The video was recorded in Israel “by an empty tomb not far from Golgotha.”

Romans 6:9 “Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dies no more; death has no more dominion over him.”
