​He's Alive

This song is by Don Fransisco.

The gates and doors were barred
And all the windows fastened down
I spent the night in sleeplessness
And arose at every sound

Half in hopeless sorrow
And half in fear the day,
Would find the soldiers breaking through
To drag us all away

And just before the sunrise
I heard something at the wall
The gate began to rattle
And a voice began to call

I hurried to the window
And looked down into the street
Expecting swords and torches
And the sound of soldiers' feet

There was no one there but Mary
So I went down to the herein
John stood there beside me
As she told us where she'd been

She said they've moved Him in the night
And none of us knows where
The stone's been rolled away
And now His body isn't there

We both ran toward the garden
And John ran on ahead
We found the stone and the empty tomb
Just the way that Mary said

But the winding sheet they wrapped Him in
Was just an empty shell
And how or where they'd taken Him
Was more than I could tell

Well, something strange that happened there
Just what, I did not know
John believed a miracle
But I just turned to go

Circumstance and speculation
Couldn't lift me very high
'Cause I'd seen them crucify Him
And then I saw Him die

And back inside the house again
The guilt and anguish came
Everything I'd promised Him
Just added to my shame

When at last it came to choices
I denied I knew His name
Even if He was alive
It wouldn't be the same

Then suddenly the air was filled
With strange and sweet perfume
Light that came from everywhere
Drove shadows from the room

Jesus stood before me
With His arms held open wide
I fell down on my knees
And just clung to Him and cried

He raised me to my feet
As I looked into His eyes
Love was shining out from Him
Like sunlight from the skies

Guilt and my confusion
Disappeared in sweet release
And every fear I'd ever had
Just melted into piece

He's alive!
He's alive!
He's alive and I'm forgiven
Heaven's gates are opened wide

He's alive!
He's alive!
He's alive and I'm forgiven
Heaven's gates are opened wide

He's alive!
He's alive!
He's alive and I'm forgiven
Heaven's gates are opened wide

He's alive!
He's alive!
He's alive!
