11. Christ Is Risen

Alive Again
by Matt Maher



 

Let no one caught in sin remain Inside the lie of inward shame But fix our eyes upon the cross And run to Him who showed great love
And bled for us Freely You’ve bled for us

Christ is risen from the dead Trampling over death by death Come awake, come awake Come and rise up from the grave Christ is risen from the dead

We are one with Him again Come awake, come awake Come and rise up from the grave

Beneath the weight of all our sin You bowed to none but heaven’s will No scheme of hell, no scoffer's crown No burden great can hold You down In strength You reign Forever let Your church proclaim

O death, where is your sting? O hell, where is your victory? O church, come stand in the light The glory of God has defeated the night

O death, where is your sting? O hell, where is your victory? O church, come stand in the light Our God is not dead He's alive! He's alive!

Behind the Song:
'God really is a genius (duh!). He used death to destroy death. He did not even have to lift a finger. He literally tricked death into destroying itself. Jesus used the process of death to completely eradicate it. So now it just becomes a process of transformation, now it is a window or a doorway. Every Easter in the Ukraine, congregations chant the phrase, “Christ has risen from the dead trampling over death by death, and redeeming us from the grave”. I thought, “that is an amazing thought to sing. We should sing it in the west.”' - Matt Maher
