He`s Alive Don Francisco Intro Am7Am7 Am6Am6 Am7Am7 Am6Am6
AmAm The gates and doors were barred GG AmAm and all the windows fastened down I spent the night in sleeplessness G6G6 AmAm and rose at every sound DmDm Half in hopeless sorrow G6G6 AmAm and half in fear the day Would find the soldiers breaking through GG AmAm GG to drag us all away AmAm And just before the sunrise GG AmAm I heard something at the wall The gate began to rattle GG AmAm and a voice began to call DmDm I hurried to the window G6G6 AmAm and looked down to the street Expecting swords and torches GG G7G7 AmAm G6G6 and the sound of soldiers feet
AmAm There was no one there but Mary G6G6 AmAm so I went down to let her in John stood there beside me GG AmAm as she told us were she`d been DmDm She said they moved him in the night AmAm and none of us knows where The stones been rolled away GG AmAm and now his body isn`t there We both ran toward the garden GG AmAm then John ran on ahead We found the stone and empty tomb GG AmAm just the way that Mary said DmDm But the winding sheet they wrapped him in AmAm was just an empty shell And how or where they`d taken him GG AmAm GG was more than I could tell AmAm Well something strange had happened there GG AmAm Just what I did not know John believed a miracle GG AmAm but I just turned to go DmDm Circumstance and speculation GG AmAm couldn`t lift me very high GG Cause I`d seen them crucify him G7G7 AmAm G6G6 and then I`d saw him die AmAm Back inside the house again GG AmAm all the guilt and anguish came Everything I`d promised him GG AmAm just added to my shame DmDm when at last it came to choices AmAm I denied I knew his name GG Even If he was alive AmAm G6G6 it wouldn`t be the same AmAm suddenly the air was filled GG with a strange and sweet perfume AmAm Light that came from everywhere drove shadows from the room DmDm Jesus stood before me GG AmAm with his arms held open wide And I fell down on my knees GG AmAm G6G6 and just clung to him and cried AmAm He raised me to my feet G6G6 AmAm and as I looked into his eyes Love was shining out from him G6G6 CC like sunlight from the skies FF Guilt and my confusion GG AmAm disappeared in sweet release And every fear I`d ever had G6G6 AA just melted into peace CC GG DD AA He`s alive CC He`s alive GG He`s alive and I`m forgiven DD Heavens gates are open wide AA He`s alive CC He`s alive GG He`s alive and I`m forgiven DD Heavens gates are open wide AA He`s alive CC He`s alive GG He`s alive and I`m forgiven DD Heavens gates are open wide AA He`s alive CC He`s alive GG DD AA He`s alive....
