Israel Houghton – He Lives lyrics
Intro:

Verse 1:
More than a baby in a manger
To whom nobles would humbly bow their knee
Or the young Man who heaven knew as Savior
He is alive in me

Verse 2:
More than the Man who walked on water,
Or the One who caused blinded eyes to see
Greater than all the signs and wonders
He is alive in me

Chorus 1:
He lives, He lives
He conquered the grave,
Covered our sin
He lives, He lives
Death could not hold
The promise within
He lives

Verse 3:
More than the Man who heard hosanna
From the same cried, "crucify the King"
Freely He gave as they demanded
Still He's alive in me

Verse 4:
More than the man, mankind rejected
With nails in His hands and through His feet
But the end told much more then they expected
For everyone knows in three days he rose
With power forever to redeem you and me

Chorus 2:
He lives, He lives
He conquered the grave
Covered our sin
He lives, He lives
Death could not hold
The promise within

Woh! He lives, He lives
He conquered the grave
Covered our sin
He lives, He lives
Death could not hold
The promise within

Bridge 1:
He's alive! (choir)
Death where is your sting?
He's alive! (choir)
Grave your victory?
He's alive! (choir)
Jesus holds the keys, He reigns
(choir) He reigns forever and ever

He's alive! (choir)
Death where is your sting?
He's alive! (choir)
Grave your victory?
He's alive! (choir)

Jesus holds the keys, He reigns
He reigns forever and ev - er (choir)

Bridge 2:
Death where is your sting
(choir) He's Alive!
Grave your victory?
He's Alive (choir)
Jesus holds the keys, He reigns

(choir) He Reigns forever and ev - er!
He Lives! He Lives! He lives! (choir)

    I believe the refrain, "Death where is your sting, grave your victory?" was meant as a diss towards Satan. He thought that killing Jesus would be the victory. Unfortunately for him (and fortunately for the believers), Christ's death meant the payment of the sin he caused was made and eternal life was available to those who believed in Jesus.

    Jesus is alive and forever reigning as lord and king of all. He is alpha and omega. The first and the last. There is none greater. Jesus came to die for our sins. And he lives forever. Death can no longer hold us. All it takes is for us to repent of our sins. And he is just to forgive us. Thank you jesus for taking the price I could not pay! I will praise you for ever. Thank you for saving me! :)

    All mighty god be with us no matter what mankind may say we are all his child. Just because you can't see him or touch doesn't mean he is not here with us in spirit in our hearts alive here on earth he wil never leave us nor, forsake us for the lord our god is with us where ever we go. And that's coming from a 13 year old; p
