NEW SONG: How Can It Be

New Songs

On Easter Sunday we learnt a great new song called, How Can It Be (aka Christ Is Risen!).  It’s a call to rejoice and live in the light of the resurrection of Jesus.  As we come to study 2 Timothy together, it’s especially good as it calls us to continue proclaiming the gospel despite any suffering which might come as a result.

We’re singing it again this Sunday.  So if you missed Easter Sunday or wanted a reminder, listen to the song here.  The lyrics are below.

How can it be, the One who died,
has borne our sin through sacrifice
to conquer every sting of death?
Sing, sing hallelujah.

For joy awakes as dawning light
when Christ’s disciples lift their eyes.
Alive He stands, their Friend and King;
Christ, Christ He is risen.

Christ is risen, He is risen indeed!
Oh, sing hallelujah!
Join the chorus, sing with the redeemed;
Christ is risen, He is risen indeed.

Where doubt and darkness once had been,
they saw Him and their hearts believed.
But blessed are those who have not seen,
yet sing hallelujah.

Once bound by fear now bold in faith,
they preached the truth and power of grace.
And pouring out their lives they gained
life, life everlasting.

Christ is risen…

The power that raised Him from the grave
now works in us to powerfully save.
He frees our hearts to live His grace;
Go tell of His goodness.

Christ is risen…

He’s alive (He’s alive), He’s alive (He’s alive)!
Heaven’s gates are opened wide.
He’s alive (He’s alive), He’s alive (He’s alive)!
Now in heaven glorified.
