Happy Easter!

I’m leading worship this morning for our Easter service and here’s one of the songs I’ll be playing! I love the chorus because it speaks to us as the church to rise up from slumber and apathy to new life in Christ. I am praying for true revival in the church!



Christ is Risen

Let no one caught in sin remain
Inside the lie of inward shame
But fix our eyes upon the cross
And run to Him 
Who showed great love
And bled for us
Freely You’ve 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 bowed to none but heaven’s 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


O         death, where is your sting?
O             hell, where is your victory?
O         church, come stand in the light
The glory of God has defeated the night
Sing out
O         death,   where is your sting
O          hell, where is your victory
O         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
