02. No Grave

In The Hands Of God
by Newsboys


Lay my body down on Mercy Street
Or deep beneath the darkest seas
Lay my body six feet under down in Old
Right beneath the ghost gum trees

Doesnít matter where
You wonít find me there

No grave
Gonna hold my spirit down
Ainít no grave
Hold my spirit down
Lord knows theyíll never keep me in the ground
Ainít no grave
Hold my spirit down

Itís alright mama, now donít be sad
Itís alright, donít cry for me
They can lock my flesh and bones up until kingdom come
But my spirit will be free

It doesnít matter where
You wonít find me there
Itís a dead end search
Itís a nowhere thread
Looking for the living down among the dead
No devil in hell
No angel above
Can separate the saints from the love of God

written by Peter Furler, Steve Taylor and Jeff Frankenstein

Behind the Song:
'When God gave man the choice, man chose to be his own god, and it opened the door to a power that was never meant to rule here. It's a power that's too strong for science or medicine or education or drugs or Buddha or Confucius or Mohammad. The only thing that can defeat that power is God's plan, which was to send something more powerful than our enemy. Christ is the only thing more powerful than death, and the song is about the great hope that someone's defeated the last enemy.' - Peter Furler (Newsboys)
