Lyrics

And I sold You to the hands of torture
I denied You and hid my face
And I raised my voice in mocking chorus
I testified against Your case

And here I am with every power wide awake
Lifted hands, this selfish heart is Yours to break

And I held the whip and drove You forward
I spat on You and cursed Your name
And I drove the nails with swinging hammer
I fell to face when earthquakes came

And here I am with every power wide awake
And lifted hands, this selfish heart is Yours to break
And here I am with every power wide awake
Lifted hands, this selfish heart is Yours to break

And we sing Gloria to the Lamb
Gloria, He is risen
Gloria to the Lamb
Oh gloria, He is risen
Gloria to the Lamb
Gloria, He is risen
Gloria to the Lamb
Gloria, He is risen
Gloria to the Lamb
Gloria, He is risen
He is risen

Oh, every knee shall bow before You
And mighty chorus we shall sing
All glory, honor, strength, and blessing
Belong to You eternally

And when I stop and look on You
And meditate upon Your ways
Seeing how Your blood it covers me with never-ceasing grace
Oh I am filled with peace and hope
Yeah I'm confident in what You've done
Knowing in my heart of hearts that this victory 'tis won

Oh Jesus is alive, His reign will never end
Oh hallelujah to my God, my friend
Oh Jesus is alive, His reign will never end
Oh hallelujah to my God, my friend
Oh hallelujah to my God, my friend

Oh I was but a slave to sin
Yeah, I shackled to my own desire
And still You showered me with perfect love and cleansing holy fire
And still I often turn away
Yeah, I sink beneath the tempting tide
Oh but Your hand is quick to pull me out and hold me to Your side

Oh Jesus is alive, His reign will never end
Oh hallelujah to my God, my friend
Oh Jesus is alive, His reign will never end
Oh alleluia to my God, my friend
Oh alleluia to my God, my friend

With every power wide awake
Lifted hands, this selfish heart is Yours to break
Oh here I am, with every power wide awake
Lifted hands, this selfish heart is Yours to break
