Who taught the sun where to stand in the morning?
And Who told the ocean you can only come this far?
And Who showed the moon where to hide 'til evening?
Whose words alone can catch a falling star?

Well I know my Redeemer lives
I know my Redeemer lives
All of creation testifies
This life within me cries
I know my Redeemer lives yeah

The very same God that spins things in orbit
Runs to the weary, the worn and the weak
And the same gentle hands that hold me when I'm broken
They conquered death to bring me victory

Now I know my Redeemer lives
I know my Redeemer lives
Let all creation testify
Let this life within me cry
I know my Redeemer, He lives

To take away my shame
And He lives forever, I'll proclaim
That the payment for my sin
Was the precious life He gave
But now He's alive and
There's an empty grave

And I know my Redeemer lives
I know my Redeemer lives
Let all creation testify
Let this life within me cry
I know my Redeemer,

I know my Redeemer
I know my Redeemer lives
I know my redeemer lives
I know that I know that I know that I know that I know my redeemer lives
Because He lives I can face tomorrow
I Know I know
He lives he lives yeah yeah I spoke with him this morning
He lives he lives, the tomb is empty,
He lives I gotta tell everybody

    He means everything to me, he gave his life for me and you. I know he lives, an empty grave tells it, and the holy spirit confirms it! God's word says it is so! Who else could create all in this world, and give us a place in heaven with him? That is enough for me!

    Well, it's pretty self explanatory. There are no hidden meanings. Don't mean to be sarcastic. Jesus was raised from the grave a.d. Then why do they call it 'after death' for counting years? Technically jesus died, i suppose. Even if he rose right after. So we can refer to him as having died, but barely?

    I love this song so much, my son put it on my phone and guess what the video was live last night on one gospel. My god is one loving god who is always there for me , to think that i was orphaned at a very young age (7), if there wasn't a living redeemer i wouldn't be having a lovely family. The song blesses me. Its amazing...

    This song is absolutley amazing its such a praise to our society. I am going to sing this song at my church this sunday. My old choir director sang this one year at the church so now I am interested in performing it also. God works in mysterious ways yall. Not only did he bring me into this world but he also saved my life. I remember when I felt like I was at the end of my journey but God saved me from myself. Im 17 and pregnant ya know... i need all the prayers I can get... This song really opens my eyes and it overcomes my emotions. God Bless!
