Sunday of Holy Week (Resurrection Sunday)

Sunday of Holy Week (Resurrection Sunday)

Christ is risen, He is risen indeed! Words and music by Ed Cash, Keith Getty, and Kristyn Getty

Verse 1
How can it be the One who died
Has borne our sin through sacrifice
To conquer every sting of death
Sing sing hallelujah

Verse 2
For joy awakes as dawning light
When Christ’s disciples lift their eyes
Alive He stands their Friend and King
Christ Christ He is risen

Christ is risen He is risen indeed
Oh sing hallelujah
Join the chorus sing with the redeemed
Christ is risen He is risen indeed

Verse 3
Where doubt and darkness once had been
They saw Him and their hearts believed
But blessed are those who have not seen
Yet sing hallelujah

Verse 4
Once bound by fear now bold in faith
They preached the truth and power of grace
And pouring out their lives they gained
Life life everlasting

Verse 5
The power that raised Him from the grave
Now works in us to powerfully save
He frees our hearts to live His grace
Go tell of His goodness
