Become Alive

What am I to do with this Jesus
Who is bleeding and dying on a cross?
What am I to say about His mission?
Is it all just a waste and a loss

He was King of Kings and Lord of Lords in Heaven
Now the nails pierce His hands and His feet
How can I declare He is Messiah
When it looks like He is drowning in defeat?

He cries out “It is Finished” and His head bows
It seems all hope is lost for you and me
They take Him to the tomb and seal it tightly
His life would be lost in History

But then the third day comes
The stone rolls away
The guards faint in fright
Jesus is alive

He walks out of that grave
Alive for all to see
Death is defeated
He has gained the victory

In His weakness He was strong
When all seemed lost His mercy won
He lives again for all to see
That He had come to set us free

Now He sits upon the throne
King of Kings and Lord of Lords
The true Messiah for us all
It’s time to listen for His call

He calls to you.  He calls to you
Come out of death to life renewed
No more let sin reign in your life
Be born again.  Become alive!

I Am A Victor

The Savior now sits upon His throne
He rose from the grave and ascended above
The praise of the angels greeted Him there
The Cherubim flying around in the air

Oh, how I’d love to hear the applause
As Jesus ascended from earths humble cause
He bought our salvation and set us all free
By taking upon Him the curse meant for me

Praise, adoration and worship on High
Unto the one who has won the fight
Satan defeated when he thought he’d won
Victory given to God’s only Son

From lamb who was slaughtered to lion who reigns
He did it all our vict’ry to claim
Death is defeated, the grave has no sting
It’s time to lift up our praises and sing

Hosanna, hosanna to Jesus my Lord
Hallelujah, amen to the one I adore
Exalted and seated upon the throne
All power and authority He does now own

Forever I’ll worship and lift up His name
Because of Him my life is not the same
I am a victor because of He arose
And I’ll live forever with Jesus my Lord

Amazing Gift

I have nothing to give
Nothing to offer Him
For the life that He gave
In place of my offering

There was no earthly reason
He should die in my place
When Jesus gave up His life
And showed me His grace

CHORUS
Amazing grace, amazing love
Amazing gift for me
My God did reconcile my sin
That day He set me free

Now I look upon that cross
The price that He has paid
The tears well up inside
As I lift my voice in praise

CHORUS


BRIDGE
Oh, how amazing.  Oh, how wonderful
Is my Saviors love for me (repeat)

CHORUS

The Price You Paid

When I think of the pain you bore
And all that you’ve done for me
I can’t help but kneel at the foot of the cross
And thank you for setting me free

I was lost and drifting through life
Like a ship without a sail
You found me when I was dep in distress
And you covered me with your grace

I do not deserve this great mercy
As your love hears my desperate plea
I sit here in awe that such a great God
Would take time to rescue me

So now I will sing Thank you Jesus
For the price that you paid in the cross
I will tell all the world of your goodness
And the change in my life you have caused

For I was the chiefest of sinners
Now peace and joy reign in my heart
Thank you, dear Lord, for rescuing me
By leading me straight to the cross

I Deserved the Cross

As gentle as a Lamb
To the slaughter He was led
He did not say a word
As the blood flowed from His head

The cruelty they showed Him
He took with tender grace
The agone He suffered
He endured to take my place

I deserved the cross yet He took it all for me
I deserved the stripes that He took to set me free
I deserved the nails that pierced His feet and hands
I deserved the cross that Jesus bore for me

With the power of a lion
He rose up from the dead
Victory was in His hand
A crown upon His head

Not the crown of thorns they gave Him
But a royal crown of gold
Now He rules all of heaven
All of earth and all below

I deserved the cross yet He took it all for me
I deserved the stripes that He took to set me free
I deserved the nails that pierced His feet and hands
I deserved the cross that Jesus bore for me

He died to take my sin
He rose to give me life
Hallelujah, He has risen
Hallelujah He’s alive

I deserved the cross yet He took it all for me
I deserved the stripes that He took to set me free
I deserved the nails that pierced His feet and hands
I deserved the cross that Jesus bore for me

The Cross For Me

The cross stood there before you
Ready to take your life
You were beaten, mocked and tortured
As the crowd cried crucify

They led you up a mountain
Exhausted you complied
Then they laid you on that cross
To suffer, bleed and die

Nails were swiftly driven
Through your wrists and feet
They raised the cross up high
So that all the world could see

All through that agony and pain
You never said a word
No slight complaint or whisper
Did you utter in return

Just a few hours later
It is finished you cried out
In that moment all of heaven
Let out a painful shout

The Son of God had given up
His life for you and me
Heaven’s Lamb, the King of Glory
Gave sin it’s last defeat

They laid Him in a borrowed tomb
A stone was put in place
Yet in three days it rolled away
From death to life, He raised

He raised my hope for heaven
He raised my peace from pain
He raised my joy from sorrow
He gave me life again

Oh, what a precious Savior
Is Jesus Christ my Lord
Forever I will praise Him
For the cross for me He bore

I Need to Be Reminded

I need to be reminded of the price you paid for me
When you left your throne in heaven and came to rescue me
I need to be reminded as a baby you arrived
There was no one here to greet you but some shepherds on that night

I need to be reminded of the lessons that you taught
As you walked on this earth as a man and not as God
I need to be reminded of the works that you performed
There were many who believed and many who would harm

I need to be reminded of the price you paid for me
When you suffered and died that day on Calvary
I need to be reminded of the suffering and the pain
As they beat you and bruised you again and again

I need to be reminded that you rose again that day
Up from the grave to open heavens gates
I need to be reminded that you reign eternally
I know there is a mansion up in heaven just for me

I need to be reminded that your story has been told
In the Bible it was written by men so long ago
I need to be reminded to spend my time each day
In the pages of your book where your words are there to stay

I need to be reminded that my life is in your hands
That you care for me and hope for me to walk in your great plan
I need to be reminded to spend time in prayer each day
And to lift my eyes to heaven and give you all my praise

The Back of the Cross

On the front of the cross is agony 
On the back of the cross is peace
On the front of the cross is sorrow 
On the back of the cross is joy
On the front of the cross is weakness 
On the back of the cross is strength
On the front of the cross is doubt 
On the back of the cross is faith
On the front of the cross is pain 
On the back of the cross is healing
On the front of the cross is deceit 
On the back of the cross is honesty
On the front of the cross are lies 
On the back of the cross is truth
On the front of the cross is bondage
On the back of the cross is freedom
On the front of the cross is darkness 
On the back of the cross is light
On the front of the cross we are lost 
On the back of the cross we find the way
On the front of the cross is sin 
On the back of the cross is forgiveness
On the front of the cross we are stained with sin
On the back of the cross we are white as snow
On the front of the cross is defeat 
On the back of the cross is victory
On the front of the cross is death 
On the back of the cross is eternal life

If we stay on the front of the cross, hell will be our destination
When we go through the cross, and come to the back, our destination is heaven
All is only achieved if we go through the cross.  
Have you seen Him on the front of the cross,  
blood stained, nailed, in agony?  
Have you accepted Him as your sacrifice for your sin? 
If you have, then come through the Cross for victory.  
Come to the back of the cross and realize all God has for you.

Lamb of God Slain

He lays on the altar.  His spirit gives in
He cries out forgive them.  He takes all my sin
He carries if far as the west from the east
I’m no longer bound.  The Lamb set me free

Lamb of God slain.  Lamb of God slain
For the sins of the world
Lamb of God slain.  Lamb of God slain
For the sins of the world

He lays in the grave. Three days pass Him by
Then He arose. The Lamb is alive

Lamb of God risen. Lamb of God risen
He’ll come back again
Lamb of God risen. Lamb of God risen
He’ll come back again

We’ll rise to meet Him on clouds in the air
To the Lamb of our God we lift up our praise
Blessing and glory and honor and power
We lift up our praise.  We lift up our praise

Lamb of God slain.  Lamb of God slain
For the sins of the world
Lamb of God slain.  Lamb of God slain
For the sins of the world

Lamb of God risen. Lamb of God risen
He’ll come back again
Lamb of God risen. Lamb of God risen
He’ll come back again

We lift up our praise to the Lamb of God slain
We lift up our praise when he comes back again
Blessing and glory and honor and power
We lift up our praise.  We lift up our praise
