Alive 03:49
Verse 1 My heart of stone was dead to You Asleep within a world That scorned its maker Until You breathed into my soul And I woke up to You My glorious Savior You became my all You became my all Chorus Now I am alive, I am alive in You You are alive, You are alive in me You called my name And raised me from the dead Now I am alive, I am alive in You Verse 2 In You my life’s completely new I’m blameless in Your eyes Because of Calvary The Father welcomes me with joy Your Spirit makes me know Your great love for me Jesus, You’re my all Jesus, You’re my all Bridge Bought with a price that cannot be measured Chosen before all time You are my joy, my prize, and my treasure Jesus, You are my life Credits: Music by Steve & Vikki Cook and Joel Sczebel, words by Steve & Vikki Cook © 2011 Sovereign Grace Worship (ASCAP)
Verse 1 Let the joy begin, let our songs ring out Let our hearts be glad—love has banished doubt See the empty cross—all our debts are gone Only grace remains, for the victory’s won Chorus Oh what a day, what a glorious day Oh what a day, what a glorious day When You conquered death And rose up from the grave What a day What a day Verse 2 See the empty tomb, see the grave clothes there He has left this place; you won’t find Him here All our fears have fled, let our hopes arise Heaven waits for us—we will never die Bridge There is still a day that we’re awaiting When the glorious One we love appears He will take us home with Him forever He will finally wipe away our tears Credits: Mark Altrogge © 2011 Sovereign Grace Praise (BMI)
Verse1 How do we know we’ve been forgiven? How do we know that we have been made clean? How do we know we’ll go to heaven? How do we know we’ve been redeemed? Chorus You have been raised, the tomb has been opened Nothing can take away our hope in You You have been raised You have been raised, the work is completed Hell and its powers have been defeated You have been raised Verse 2 Now we are free from condemnation There is no judgment left for us to fear We don’t have to wonder if we’re welcome You are the One who’s brought us near Bridge The price You paid for us Has fully been accepted Because of Your shed blood We cannot be rejected Credits: Music by Mark Altrogge, Bob Kauflin, and Ken Boer; words by Mark Altrogge and Bob Kauflin © 2011 Sovereign Grace Praise (BMI)/Sovereign Grace Worship (ASCAP)
Verse 1 You bore our sins in Your body As You were hung on a tree So we might die to rebellion And live for Him who set us free Verse 2 You were mocked and reviled Suffering in our place Trusting all to Your Father So enemies could know Your grace Chorus We have been healed, justified Made alive in the life of Christ Righteous blood covers every sin Risen Lamb, heaven’s light Crucified and now alive In Your love You have drawn us in Verse 3 Like straying sheep we were wandering Destitute and alone You sought us out like a shepherd You carried us and brought us home Bridge All our sin for Your grace What a glorious exchange All our sin for Your grace What a glorious exchange All our sin for Your grace What a glorious exchange Credits: Music by Rich Gunderlock, words by Rich Gunderlock and Bob Kauflin © 2011 Sovereign Grace Worship (ASCAP)/Sovereign Grace Praise (BMI)
Verse 1 When we were dead in our transgressions Jesus, You came to bring us back to God You canceled the debt that stood against us Set it aside, nailing it to the cross Now with joy we can proclaim Chorus You’ve overcome the grave You took our curse away There is no other name by which we’re saved For in Your death we died In You we have new life Jesus, Your name alone can save Verse 2 Now death has lost its sting forever Because You arose, we do not hope in vain You defeated every evil power Disarming them all, bearing our guilt and shame And forever we’ll proclaim Bridge In Your name there is freedom, life, and peace In the name above all names In Your name there is power—darkness flees At the name above all names Credits: Music by Zach Jones and Joel Sczebel, words by Zach Jones © 2011 Sovereign Grace Worship (ASCAP)
He Has Risen 04:22
Verse 1 Come see the mournful grave Where once a body lay Our God in human form By wrath and judgment torn But He’s no longer here His death has conquered death Our guilt has disappeared In His forgiveness Chorus Jesus, He has risen Jesus, He’s alive Opened the gates of heaven His death has brought us life Verse 2 Come see what God has done For vile and wicked ones The innocent is judged Unlovely ones are loved Our joy is now complete For death has lost its sting And we are called to live Life in His victory Bridge Jesus has done enough Our hope cannot be shaken Because God raised Him up We cannot be forsaken Credits: Music by Joel Sczebel, words by Joel Sczebel and Bob Kauflin © 2011 Sovereign Grace Worship (ASCAP)/Sovereign Grace Praise (BMI)
Verse 1 Before You gave us life and breath You numbered all our days You set Your gracious love on us And chose us to be saved This fleeting life is passing by With all its joys and pain But we believe to live is Christ And death is gain Chorus To live is Christ, to die is gain In every age this truth remains We will not fear, we’re unashamed To live is Christ, to die is gain Verse 2 And though we grieve for those we love Who fall asleep in Christ We know they’ll see the Savior’s face And gaze into His eyes So now we grieve, yet we don’t grieve As those who have no hope For just as Jesus rose again He’ll raise His own Verse 3 And now we’re longing for the day We’ll see the Lamb once slain Who saved a countless multitude To glorify His name We’re yearning for the wedding feast Of Jesus and His bride His nail-scarred hands will finally Bring us to His side Credits: Mark Altrogge and Bob Kauflin © 2011 Sovereign Grace Praise (BMI)
Jesus Lives 04:25
Verse 1 I no longer fear the grave Christ has come Took the sting of death away Through His saving blood Though my body fails and my flesh grows weak Till my final breath, to this hope I’ll cling Chorus Jesus lives and so shall I I’ll be raised from the dust with Christ on high Jesus lives no more to die And when He returns, with Him I’ll rise Jesus lives Verse 2 In this fallen world I cry For the day When Your glory splits the sky And You come to reign All creation waits for that promised hour When the saints of God are revealed in power Bridge Not death nor any power of hell can separate me from The love, the love of my Savior Credits: Music by George Romanacce, words by George Romanacce and Bob Kauflin © 2011 Sovereign Grace Worship (ASCAP)/Sovereign Grace Praise (BMI)
Verse 1 Comfort for weary sinners Strength for the struggling saint Jesus Christ has risen from the grave Peace when the waves are pounding When voices of hope sound faint Jesus Christ has risen from the grave How can grief remain when our Savior reigns? Chorus You are our hope, You are our joy You are our overcoming King So we sing “Hallelujah, Jesus is alive” Risen from death, ascended on high Glorious by the Father’s side So we sing “Hallelujah, Jesus is alive” Verse 2 Power to fight temptation The world and the devil’s lies Jesus Christ has risen from the grave Purpose in all our suffering And joy that will never die Jesus Christ has risen from the grave How can grief remain when our Savior reigns? Tag Jesus, victorious, in the heavens exalted Jesus, give us eyes to see Your glory Credits: Doug Plank © 2011 Sovereign Grace Worship (ASCAP)
Verse 1 From the brightness of His glory Jesus the Son of God descends Takes on the nature of a servant Jesus, obedient to death The Father willed to crush Him As a sacrifice for sin He satisfied God’s justice And in victory rose again Chorus You are highly exalted Name above all names Worthy of all praise You are reigning in glory Jesus, You’re the King Over everything Exalted to the highest place Given the name above all other names Verse 2 The tomb is empty, Christ has risen Jesus, the Lamb, once crucified The angels never cease to worship Jesus, in heaven glorified To Him belongs the power The wisdom, might, and strength All glory and dominion To the Lord of every age Bridge Our knees will bow Our tongues proclaim That You are Lord of all Credits: Music by Pat Sczebel and Joel Sczebel, words by Pat Sczebel © 2011 Sovereign Grace Worship (ASCAP)
We Will Rise 04:55
Verse 1 A seed falls down from the heights And is buried in the earth It silently lies in the ground Awaiting a rebirth So it is with those who die Their lips confessing Christ Because He is risen With Him they will rise Verse 2 Shall we mourn as this world mourns Or shall we rest in truth? Though outwardly we waste away Within we are renewed The weight of glory far transcends These momentary trials Because He is risen With Him we will rise We will rise Bridge Weeping may last for an evening But rejoicing comes with the dawn Verse 3 To all the wonders God will do Imagination’s blind What He has made, He’ll make anew In the twinkling of an eye For death itself will be destroyed Swallowed up by life Because He is risen With Him we will rise We will rise Credits: Dave Fournier © 2011 Sovereign Grace Praise (BMI)
Verse 1 Who has held the oceans in His hands? Who has numbered every grain of sand? Kings and nations tremble at His voice All creation rises to rejoice Chorus Behold our God seated on His throne Come, let us adore Him Behold our King—nothing can compare Come, let us adore Him Verse 2 Who has given counsel to the Lord? Who can question any of His words? Who can teach the One who knows all things? Who can fathom all His wondrous deeds? Verse 3 Who has felt the nails upon His hands? Bearing all the guilt of sinful man God eternal, humbled to the grave Jesus, Savior, risen now to reign Tag You will reign forever Let Your glory fill the earth Credits: Jonathan Baird, Meghan Baird, Ryan Baird, and Stephen Altrogge © 2011 Sovereign Grace Worship (ASCAP)/Sovereign Grace Praise (BMI)
Hail the Day 05:24
Verse 1 Hail the day that Christ arose Through the skies to worlds unknown Glorious there He ever reigns Object of all heaven’s praise Verse 2 See Him lift His hands above See the scars of His great love He has conquered death and sin Saving all who hope in Him Chorus Hallelujah, hallelujah The King of Love is on His throne Hallelujah, hallelujah His grace will lead us safely home Verse 3 Though He dwells beyond the stars His redeemed are on His heart Even now He intercedes Jesus cares for all our needs Credits: Lyrics adapted from Charles Wesley's 'Hail the Day That Sees Him Rise'. New lyrics and music by Steve & Vikki Cook © 2011 Integrity Worship Music/ASCAP


“He is not here, for he has risen, as he said.”

These words, spoken by an angel to the women at Jesus’s tomb, changed history forever. Christ’s resurrection was more than a display of raw supernatural power. It was the single event that assures us that his payment for our sins has been accepted. God’s wrath is satisfied. Death is defeated. The powers of darkness are overcome. Sin’s dominion has been broken. And the life of the age to come has dawned.

The songs on this album celebrate these realities, experienced and enjoyed by all who place their faith and hope in Jesus Christ.
