Intro  Am7 chord diagramAm7Am7  Am6 chord diagramAm6Am6  Am7 chord diagramAm7Am7 Am6 chord diagramAm6Am6


    Am chord diagramAmAm
The gates and doors were barred
            G chord diagramGG                Am chord diagramAmAm
and all the windows fastened down

I spent the night in sleeplessness
    G6 chord diagramG6G6            Am chord diagramAmAm
and rose at every sound
Dm chord diagramDmDm
Half in hopeless sorrow
    G6 chord diagramG6G6               Am chord diagramAmAm
and half in fear the day

Would find the soldiers breaking through
   G chord diagramGG            Am chord diagramAmAm   G chord diagramGG
to drag us all away


    Am chord diagramAmAm
And just before the sunrise
        G chord diagramGG                Am chord diagramAmAm
I heard something at the wall

The gate began to rattle
      G chord diagramGG              Am chord diagramAmAm
and a voice began to call
  Dm chord diagramDmDm
I hurried to the window
           G6 chord diagramG6G6          Am chord diagramAmAm
and looked down to the street

Expecting swords and torches
        G chord diagramGG            G7 chord diagramG7G7    Am chord diagramAmAm  G6 chord diagramG6G6
and the sound of soldiers feet


          Am chord diagramAmAm
There was no one there but Mary
     G6 chord diagramG6G6                   Am chord diagramAmAm
so I went down to let her in

John stood there beside me
       G chord diagramGG                   Am chord diagramAmAm
as she told us were she`d been
    Dm chord diagramDmDm
She said they moved him in the night
                     Am chord diagramAmAm
and none of us knows where

The stones been rolled away
            G chord diagramGG          Am chord diagramAmAm
and now his body isn`t there


We both ran toward the garden
     G chord diagramGG            Am chord diagramAmAm
then John ran on ahead

We found the stone and empty tomb
         G chord diagramGG             Am chord diagramAmAm
just the way that Mary said
        Dm chord diagramDmDm
But the winding sheet they wrapped him in
                  Am chord diagramAmAm
was just an empty shell

And how or where they`d taken him
    G chord diagramGG                 Am chord diagramAmAm    G chord diagramGG
was more than I could tell


     Am chord diagramAmAm
Well something strange had happened there
     G chord diagramGG              Am chord diagramAmAm
Just what I did not know

John believed a miracle
    G chord diagramGG                Am chord diagramAmAm
but I just turned to go
       Dm chord diagramDmDm
Circumstance and speculation
         G chord diagramGG            Am chord diagramAmAm
couldn`t lift me very high
                                  G chord diagramGG
Cause I`d seen them crucify him
    G7 chord diagramG7G7               Am chord diagramAmAm   G6 chord diagramG6G6
and then I`d saw him die


Am chord diagramAmAm
Back inside the house again
        G chord diagramGG                 Am chord diagramAmAm
all the guilt and anguish came

Everything I`d promised him
     G chord diagramGG            Am chord diagramAmAm
just added to my shame
        Dm chord diagramDmDm
when at last it came to choices
                    Am chord diagramAmAm
I denied I knew his name
                      G chord diagramGG
Even If he was alive
                   Am chord diagramAmAm   G6 chord diagramG6G6
it wouldn`t be the same


Am chord diagramAmAm
suddenly the air was filled
                                 G chord diagramGG
with a strange and sweet perfume
Am chord diagramAmAm
Light that came from everywhere

drove shadows from the room
Dm chord diagramDmDm
Jesus stood before me
         G chord diagramGG              Am chord diagramAmAm
with his arms held open wide

And I fell down on my knees
         G chord diagramGG                Am chord diagramAmAm      G6 chord diagramG6G6
and just clung to him and cried


   Am chord diagramAmAm
He raised me to my feet
          G6 chord diagramG6G6             Am chord diagramAmAm
and as I looked into his eyes

Love was shining out from him
     G6 chord diagramG6G6                C chord diagramCC
like sunlight from the skies
F chord diagramFF
Guilt and my confusion
     G chord diagramGG                 Am chord diagramAmAm
disappeared in sweet release

And every fear I`d ever had
     G6 chord diagramG6G6           A chord diagramAA
just melted into peace


C chord diagramCC  G chord diagramGG  D chord diagramDD


     A chord diagramAA
He`s alive
     C chord diagramCC
He`s alive
     G chord diagramGG
He`s alive and I`m forgiven
        D chord diagramDD
Heavens gates are open wide

He`s alive

He`s alive
     G chord diagramGG
He`s alive and I`m forgiven
        D chord diagramDD
Heavens gates are open wide

He`s alive
     C chord diagramCC
He`s alive
     G chord diagramGG
He`s alive and I`m forgiven
        D chord diagramDD
Heavens gates are open wide
     A chord diagramAA
He`s alive
     C chord diagramCC
He`s alive
     G chord diagramGG      D chord diagramDD   A chord diagramAA
He`s alive....
