Song Lyrics:

Verse 1
There were walls between us
By the cross You came and broke them down
You broke them down
And there were chains around us
By Your grace we are no longer bound
No longer bound

You called me out of the grave
You called me into the light
You called my name and then my heart came alive

Your love is greater
Your love is stronger
Your love awakens awakens awakens me

Verse 2
Feel the darkness shaking
All the dead are coming back to life
I’m back to life
Hear the song awaken
All creation singing we’re alive
‘Cause You’re alive

And what a love we’ve found
Death can’t hold us down
We shout it out
We’re alive ’cause You’re alive
