#AtoZchallenge: He Lives

Also because Easter and also because Israel Houghton.

Verse 1:
More than a baby in a manger
To whom nobles would humbly bow their knee
Or the young Man who heaven knew as Savior
He is alive in me

More than the Man who walked on water,
Or the One who caused blinded eyes to see
Greater than all the signs and wonders
He is alive in me

He lives, He lives
He conquered the grave,
Covered our sin
He lives, He lives
Death could not hold
The promise within
He lives

Verse 2:
More than the Man who heard hosanna
From the same cried, "crucify the King"
Freely He gave as they demanded
Still He's alive in me

More than the man mankind rejected
With nails in His hands and through His feet
But the end told much more than they expected
For everyone knows in three days He rose
With power forever to redeem you and me

He's alive!
Death where is your sting?
He's alive!
Grave your victory?
He's alive!
Jesus holds the keys, He reigns
He reigns forever and ever

  1. Nice song and lyrics. But I still love the old standard He Lives:

    I serve a risen Savior
    He’s in the world today.
    I know that He is living,
    Whatever men may say.
    I see His hand of mercy;
    I hear His voice of cheer;
    And just the time I need Him
    He’s always near.

    CHORUS: He lives, He lives, Christ Jesus lives today!
    He walks with me and talks with me along life’s narrow way.
    He lives, He lives, salvation to impart!
    You ask me how I know He lives?
    He lives within my heart.
    In all the world around me
    I see His loving care,
    And though my heart grows weary,
    I never will despair;
    I know that He is leading,
    Through all the stormy blast;
    The day of His appearing
    Will come at last.
    Rejoice, rejoice, O Christian,
    Lift up your voice and sing
    Eternal hallelujahs
    To Jesus Christ the King!
    The Hope of all who seek Him,
    The Help of all who find,
    None other is so loving,
    So good and kind.
