​The Word Is Alive

This song is by Casting Crowns, features Tony Nolan and appears on the album The Altar and the Door (2007).

Looking out from His throne, the Father of light and of men
Chose to make Himself known and show us the way back to Him
Speaking wisdom and truth into the hearts of peasants and kings
He began to unveil the Word that would change the course of all things
With eyes wide open, all would see

The Word is alive
And it cuts like a sword through the darkness
With a message of life to the hopeless and afraid
Breathing life into all who believe
The Word is alive
And the world and its glories will fade
But His truth, it will not pass away
It remains yesterday and forever the same
The Word is alive

Simple strokes on a page
Eternity's secrets revealed, carried on from age to age
It speaks Truth to us even still
And as the ran falls from Heaven, feeds the earth before it returns
Lord, let Your World fall on us and bring forth the fruit You deserve
With eyes wide open, let us see

The Word is alive
And it cuts like a sword through the darkness
With a message of life to the hopeless and afraid
Breathing life into all who believe
The Word is alive
And the world and its glories will fade
But His truth, it will not pass away
It remains yesterday and forever the same
The Word is alive

Spoken:
The Bible was inscribed over a period of 2,000 years,
In times of war and in days of peace,
By kings, physicians, tax collectors, farmers, fishermen, singers, and shepherds.
The marvel is that a library so perfectly cohesive
Could have been produced by such a diverse crowd over a period of time which staggers the imagination.
Jesus is its grand subject, our good is designed, and the glory of God is its end.

The Word is alive
And it cuts like a sword through the darkness
With a message of life to the hopeless and afraid
Breathing life into all who believe
The Word is alive
And the world and its glories will fade
But His truth, it will not pass away
It remains yesterday and forever the same
The Word is alive

And the world and its glories will fade
The Word is alive
His truth, it will not pass away
His Word is alive
His Word is alive, His Word is alive

Spoken:
Jesus is its grand subject, our good is designed, and the glory of God is its end.
