Lyrics to Christ Is Risen by Phil Wickham

Amazing grace, how sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
For I once was lost but now I’m found
Was blind but now I see

Hallelujah
Christ is risen from the grave
Hallelujah
Christ is risen from the grave

The prodigal is welcomed home
The sinner now a saint
For the God who died came back to life
And everything is changed

Hallelujah
Christ is risen from the grave
Hallelujah
Christ is risen from the grave

Oh death, where is Your sting?
Oh fear, where is Your power?
For the mighty King of kings has disarmed you
Delivered and redeemed
Eternal life resounds
Oh praise His name forever

Hallelujah
Christ is risen from the grave
Hallelujah
Christ is risen from the grave
And all throughout eternity
Our song will be the same
Hallelujah
Christ is risen from the grave

And on the day You call me in
To Heaven’s sweet embrace
I’ll see Your scars, Your open arms
And the beauty of Your face
Through tears of joy, I’ll lift my voice
In everlasting praise
Hallelujah
Christ is risen from the grave

Oh death, where is Your sting?
Oh fear, where is Your power?
For the mighty King of kings has disarmed you
Delivered and redeemed
Eternal life resounds
Oh praise His name forever

Hallelujah
Christ is risen from the grave
Hallelujah
Christ is risen from the grave
And all throughout eternity
Our song will be the same
Hallelujah
Christ is risen from the grave

Jesus is alive, ooh

And all throughout eternity
Our song will be the same
Hallelujah
Christ is risen from the grave

And on the day You call me in
To Heaven’s sweet embrace
I’ll see Your scars, Your open arms
And the beauty of Your face
Through tears of joy, I’ll lift my voice
In everlasting praise
Hallelujah
Christ is risen from the grave
