We knew He was dead, it is finished, He said
We had watched as His life ebbed away
Then we all stood around till the guards took Him down
Joseph begged for His body that day

It was late afternoon when we got to the tomb
Wrapped His body and sealed up the grave
So I know how you feel, His death was so real
But please listen and hear what I say

I've just seen Jesus, I tell you He's alive
I've just seen Jesus, our precious Lord alive
And I knew He really saw me too
As if till now I'd never lived
All that I'd done before won't matter anymore
I've just seen Jesus and I'll never be the same again

It was His voice she first heard, those kind gentle words
Asking what was her reason for tears
And I sobbed in despair, my Lord is not there
He said, “Child, it is I, I am here”

I've just seen Jesus, I tell you He's alive
I've just seen Jesus, our precious Lord alive
And I knew He really saw me too
As if till now I'd never lived
All that I'd done before won't matter anymore
I've just seen Jesus, I've just seen Jesus
I've just seen Jesus

All that I'd done before won't matter anymore
I've just seen Jesus
And I'll never be the same again
I've just seen Jesus
