Easter song


We've heard this song on our Christian radio station a lot lately, and we've really enjoyed it, so we downloaded it for free last month from their website. It has become one of my favorite songs lately. The words are so powerful, and the idea about how death is conquered by death is quite intriguing. I have not listened to Matt Maher too much, but I have become a fan of his after hearing this song. This is an awesome resurrection song...

Here are the lyrics:


Christ is Risen- Matt Maher 

Let no one caught in sin remain
Inside the lie of inward shame
We fix our eyes upon the cross
And run to him who showed great love
And bled for us
Freely you 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 bow to none but heavens 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

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

Oh death! Where is your sting?
Oh hell! Where is your victory?
Oh Church! Come stand in the light!
The glory of God has defeated the night!

Oh death! Where is your sting?
Oh hell! Where is your victory?
Oh Church! Come stand in the light!
Our God is not dead, he's alive! he's alive!

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

Rise up from the grave... 

[ Matt Maher Lyrics from www.songlyrics.com

From the "Alive Again" CD, released Sept. 2009
(You can buy it on iTunes or Amazon.com)

You can listen to it and watch him play it on a video here: http://www.worshiptogether.com/songs/songdetail.aspx?iid=1004257
(you can just watch the middle if you don't want to hear them talk about it)



I love hearing them talk about it though, how our faith hinges on this truth of Christ's death. It is chant-like, has a catchy melody. My kids have been caught singing it walking around the house. :-D
I hope you enjoyed it as much as I do! And take time to thank God and worship Him, that HE'S ALIVE! OUR GOD IS NOT DEAD! He has triumphed over the grave- Hallelujah!!
