LYRICS

We thought that it was over,
We thought it all went wrong.
We thought that you were gone from us
But it seems the story’s only just begun

The daughters of Jerusalem
weep for you no more.
Death’s doors couldn’t hold you

(And) now we’re all free
The cross is now a sign of hope
New life for all who would believe
You are living again here among us now
You are the Christ, our King, our Lord!

A Christ that would be crucified
No one could understand
Nothing did prepare us
for such sacrifice to be God’s saving plan

They destroyed the living temple
By God’s grace it is restored
Unseeing eyes are opened

(And) now we’re all free
The cross is now a sign of hope
New life for all who would believe
You are living again here among us now
You are the Christ, our King, our Lord!

(Repeat Verse 2 with counter melody)
Counter Melody:
I can’t believe it
My eyes they must deceive me
My Lord, he stands before me
risen from the dead!
He is alive… I can’t believe it!

I can’t contain my joy
My heart is over flowing
I’ve heard him call my name
Yes, I have seen our risen Lord
He is alive!

Now we’re all free…
