Christian Worship Song Lyrics

 

The gates and doors were barred
and all the windows fastened down
I spent the night in sleeplessness
and rose at every sound
Half in hopeless sorrow
and half in fear the day
would find the soldiers breaking through
to drag us all away


Just before the sunrise
I heard something at the wall
the gate began to rattle
and the voice began to call
I hurried to the window -
looked down into the street
expecting swords and torches
and the sound of soldiers' feet


There was no one there but Mary
and so I went down to let her in
John stood there beside me
as she told us where she'd been
She said, ""they moved Him in the night
and none of us knows where.
the stone's rolled away,
and now His body isn't there.""


We both ran toward the garden
then John ran on ahead
we found the stone at the empty tomb
just the way that Mary said
But the winding sheet they wrapped Him in
was just an empty shell
and how or where they'd taken Him
was more than I could tell


Something strange had happened there
but just what I didn't know
John believed a miracle
but I just turned to go
Circumstance and speculation
couldn't lift me very high
cause I'd seen them crucify Him
and then I saw Him die


Back inside the house again
the guilt and anguish came
everything I'd promised Him
just added to my shame
When at last it came to choices
I denied I knew His name
I denied I knew His name
and even if He was alive


it wouldn't be the same
Suddenly the air was filled
with strange and sweet perfume
light, it came from everywhere
drove shadows from the room
Jesus stood before me
with His arms held open wide
and I fell down on my knees


and just clung to Him and cried
He raised me to my feet
and as I looked into His eyes
love was shining out from Him
like sunlight from the skies
Guilt and my confusion
disappeared in sweet release
every fear I've ever had


just melted into peace
He's alive, He's alive,
He's alive and I'm forgiven
Heaven's gates are open wide
He's alive, He's alive,
He's alive and I'm forgiven
Heaven's gates are open wide
He's alive, He's alive, He's alive.
