Newsboys – No Grave lyrics

Lay my body down on Mercy Street
Or deep beneath the darkest seas
Lay my body six feet under down in Old
Right beneath the ghost gum trees

Doesn't matter where
You won't find me there

No grave
Gonna hold my spirit down
Ain't no grave
Hold my spirit down
Lord knows they'll never keep me in the ground
Ain't no grave
Hold my spirit down

It's alright mama, now don't be sad
It's alright, don't cry for me
They can lock my flesh and bones up until kingdom come
But my spirit will be free

It doesn't matter where
You won't find me there
It's a dead end search
It's a nowhere thread
Looking for the living down among the dead
No devil in hell
No angel above
Can separate the saints from the love of God
