Song Lyrics


He's Alive
by Gaither Vocal Band

Album: Greatly Blessed


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 breakin through to drag us all away
And just before the sunrise i heard something at the wall
The gate began to rattle and a voice began to call
I hurried to the window and looked down into the street
Expecting swords and torches and the sound of soldiers feet
But there was no one there but mary 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 been rolled away and now his body isn't there
So we both ran toward the garden then john ran on ahead
We found the stone and 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, it was more than i could tell
Well something strange had happened there, just what i did not 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
And even if he was alive it could never be the same
Then suddenly the air was filled with a strange and sweet perfume
Light that came from everywhere go shadows from the room
Then jesus took before me with his arms open and wide
And i fell on my knees and i just crumbled in and cried
Then he raise me to my feet and there's i looked into his eyes
Light was shining out from him, like some light from the sky
Guilt and my confusion dissapeard in sweet release
And every fear i've ever had just melted into peace
Sweet peace
He's alive, he's alive, he's alive and i'm forgiven
Heaven's gates are open wide
