LEADER: When they put the Son of God on a cross, he died. But the mourning only lasted for 3 days.

CHURCH: He is alive.



LEADER: When days seem dark, His light shines brighter. The light shines in the darkness and cannot be overcome.

CHURCH: He is alive.



LEADER:  When evil shows its face and the world feels lost, we still have hope.

CHURCH: He is alive.

You Keep Hope Alive

VERSE 1:

Days may be darkest, but your light is greater

You light our way, God, you light our way

When evil is rising, you're rising higher

With power to save, with power to save


CHORUS:

You keep hope alive

You keep hope alive

From the beginning to end, your word never fails

You keep hope alive because you are alive

Jesus, you are alive


VERSE 2:

Death had a stronghold, but your life was stronger

Rose from the grave, rose up from the grave, yeah yeah

When evil is rising, you're rising higher

With power to save, with power to save


BRIDGE:

There's hope in the morning

Hope in the evening

Hope because you're living

Hope because you're breathing

There's hope in the breaking

Hope in the sorrow

Hope for this moment

My hope for tomorrow



TAG:

To worship you I live

To worship you I live

I live to worship you

Resurrecting

VERSE 2:

The tomb where soldiers watched in vain

Was borrowed for three days

His body there would not remain

Our God has robbed the grave

Our God has robbed the grave


BRIDGE:

By Your spirit I will rise

From the ashes of defeat

The resurrected King, is resurrecting me

In Your name I come alive

To declare Your victory

The resurrected King, is resurrecting me


CHORUS:

Your name, Your name

Is victory

All praise, will rise

To Christ, our king

Graves Into Gardens

VERSE 1:

I searched the world

But it couldn't fill me

Man's empty praise

And treasures that fade

Are never enough


Then You came along

And put me back together

And every desire

Is now satisfied

Here in Your love


CHORUS:

Oh, there's nothing better than You

There's nothing better than You

Lord, there's nothing

Nothing is better than You


VERSE:

I'm not afraid

To show You my weakness

My failures and flaws

Lord, You've seen 'em all

And You still call me friend


'Cause the God of the mountain

Is the God of the valley

There's not a place

Your mercy and grace

Won't find me again


BRIDGE:

You turn mourning to dancing

You give beauty for ashes

You turn shame into glory

You're the only one who can


You turn mourning to dancing

You give beauty for ashes

You turn shame into glory

You're the only one who can


You turn graves into gardens

You turn bones into armies

You turn seas into highways

You're the only one who can

You're the only one who can

Because He Lives

VERSE:

God sent His Son

They called Him Jesus

He came to love

Heal and forgive

He lived and died

To buy my pardon

An empty grave is there

To prove my Savior lives


CHORUS:

Because He lives

I can face tomorrow

Because He lives

All fear is gone

Because I know

He holds the future

And life is worth living

Just because He lives
