One Of The Best Christian Songs Of 2011 You’ve Never Even Heard About: MATT MAHER’S CHRIST IS RISEN

 

One of my favorite things in the world is to discover awesome new Christian songs that were hidden in fairly over-looked music albums.  The song may not be new in the strict sense of the word, but they are new to me. And usually when that happens I love to share it with other people who never have heard or heard about the song. One such song is the song “Christ Is Risen” by Christian recording artist Matt Maher.

I was kidding when I said in the blog post title that’s its a song of 2011, it’s really off his 2009 album “Alive Again.” And in my view, its a true gem.  If you’ve never heard it or heard about it before I think you’ll appreciate the heads up.  I listen to this all the time, often replaying more than five times at a time.

Here is the youtube video that you can use to listen to the song.  Definitely worth checking out.

 

HERE ARE THE LYRICS:

Let no one caught in sin remain

Inside the lie of inward shame

We fix our eyes upon the cross

And run to Him who showed great love

 

And bled for us

Freely You’ve bled for us

 

Christ is risen from the dead

Trampling over death by death

Come awake come awake

Come and rise up from the grave

 

Christ is risen from the dead

We are one with Him again

Come awake come awake

Come and rise up from the grave

 

Beneath the weight of all our sin

You bowed to none but heaven’s will

No scheme of hell no scoffer’s crown

No burden great can hold You down

In strength You reign

Forever let Your church proclaim

 

Christ is risen from the dead

Trampling over death by death

Come awake come awake

Come and rise up from the grave

 

Christ is risen from the dead

We are one with Him again

Come awake come awake

Come and rise up from the grave

 

O death where is your sting?

O hell where is your victory?

O church come stand in the light

 

The glory of God has defeated the night

 

Sing it o death where is your sting?

O hell where is your victory?

O church come stand in the light

Our God is not dead He’s alive He’s alive

 

Christ is risen from the dead

Trampling over death by death

Come awake come awake

Come and rise up from the grave

 

Christ is risen from the dead

We are one with Him again

Come awake come awake

Come and rise up from the grave

 

Christ is risen from the dead

Trampling over death by death

Come awake come awake

Come and rise up from the grave

 

Christ is risen from the dead

We are one with Him again

Come awake come awake

Come and rise up from the grave

Rise up from the grave
