Verse 1: Christ is alive! Let Christians sing. The cross stands empty to the sky. Let streets and homes with praises ring. Love, drowned in death, shall never die.
Verse 2: Christ is alive! No longer bound To distant years in Palestine, But saving, healing here and now, And touching every place and time.
Verse 3: Not throned afar, remotely high, Untouched, unmoved by human pains, But daily, in the midst of life, Our risen Savior lives and reigns.
Verse 4: In every insult, rift, and war, Where color, scorn or wealth divide, Christ suffers still, yet loves the more, And lives, where even hope has died.
Verse 5: Christ is alive, and comes to bring Good news to this and every age, Till earth and sky and ocean ring With joy, with justice, love, and praise.
