Resurrection by Nicky Chiswell
(EmuMusic)

1. Sun-bleached and lifeless,
Bones of a nation
Down in the valley they lay.
God gave them flesh,
God gave them Spirit;
The prophet saw them that day!
They arose a mighty army;
Those who died lived again!

Resurrection! Life is given!
Grace to the death bound from our risen King.
Resurrection! Sins forgiven!
Where is death’s victory?
Where is death’s sting?

2. Like a seed buried Jesus was lifeless
Deep in the earth he lay
That Sunday morning
Things changed forever
As he burst forth from the grave.
He lay down his life our ransom;
He who died lives again.

3. His resurrection
Was the beginning
First-fruits of harvest to come.
Our risen Saviour
Sits with our Father,
Pours out his Spirit on us.
We who were but lifeless bones,
We who died live again!

Resurrection! Graves will open,
Those sown in weakness
Shall be raised in power.
Resurrection! Day is coming!
All eyes shall see him and each knee shall bow!

Resurrection! Life is given!
Grace to the death bound from our risen King.
Resurrection! Sins forgiven!
Where is death’s victory?
Where is death’s sting?

 

REVIEW by John Kehl

Another good song from EmuMusic.  “Resurrection” is a joyful celebration of Christ’s resurrection. The verses progress from God resurrecting the army of dry bones in Ezekiel (verse 1) to Jesus’ resurrection (verse 2) to the resurrection of believers (verse 3). The song bursts forth in joyful refrain about Resurrection! Sins Forgiven! Where is death’s sting!  A very powerful song with great lyrics and a great flowing tune and refrain that fit the words perfectly.

I would highly recommend this song for Easter or for the Easter season.
