He Has Risen! He Lives!

 

He Has Risen! He Lives!

After the darkness of the Cross,
When the earth shook as Jesus died,
Two women came at break of day,
To see where Jesus’ body lay,
Three days had passed since He was gone,
And now they came to anoint Him.

They saw the stone was rolled away,
In front of the tomb where He lay,
But they entered an empty tomb,
An angel in bright raiment said,
“He is not here for He has risen!!
Tell His disciples and Peter!!”

He is not here; He is not dead!
He has risen just as He said!
They sang now in joy as they ran,
He was not there! He is not dead!!
He is risen just as He said!!!
Such wonderful news they could share!

Today with joy, we too can sing,
Christ has risen! He lives! He lives!
He died for us and rose to life,
He conquered sin, death, Hell and grave,
He gave Himself, our lives to save,
Christ has risen! He lives! He lives!

Because He lives, we live in Him!
The tomb was bare! He was not dead!
He has risen just as He said!
He died for us and rose to life,
He conquered sin, death, Hell and grave,
He gave Himself our lives to save!

Christ has risen! He lives! He lives!!

‘For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. For God sent the Son into the world, not to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through Him.’
[John 3:16-17]
