A Couple of My Favorite Easter Songs

Come Alive

This song always makes me think of Jesus and the power of His resurrection and always gives me chills.

Seems like only yesterday
Life belonged to runaways
Nothing here to see, no looking back
Every sound monotone
Every color monochrome
Life began to fade into the black
Such a simple animal
Sterilized with alcohol
I could hardly feel me anymore
Desperate, meaningless
All filled up with emptiness
Felt like everything was said and done

I lay there in the dark, and I close my eyes
You saved me the day you came alive

Still I try to find my way
Spending hours into days
Burning like a flame behind my eyes
Drown in out, drink it in
Crown the king of suffering
Prisoner, slave to the disguise
Disappeared the only thing
Bittersweet surrendering
Knew that it was time to say goodbye

I lay there in the dark and I close my eyes
You saved me the day you came alive
No reason left me to survive
You saved me the day you came alive


Come Alive

I lay there in the dark and I close my eyes
You saved me the day you came alive

Come alive

Nothing more to give
I can finally live, come alive
Your life into me
I can finally breathe

Come alive

I lay there in the dark
Open my eyes
You saved me the day you came alive

Come Alive


Now the Green Blade Rises

If video doesn't appear, go here.

Now the green blade rises from the buried grain,
Wheat that in the dark earth many days has lain;
Love lives again, that with the dead has been:
Love has come again, like wheat that springeth green.

In the grave they laid Him, Love Whom we had slain,
Thinking that never He would wake again,
Laid in the earth like grain that sleeps unseen:
Love has come again, like wheat that springeth green.

Forth He came in quiet, like the risen grain,
He that for three days in the grave had lain;
Quick from the dead the risen Christ is seen:
Love has come again, like wheat that springeth green.

When our hearts are wintry, grieving or in pain,
By his touch can call us back to life again;
Fields of our hearts that dead and bare have been:
Love has come again, like wheat that springeth green.

"The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified. Very truly I tell you, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds."
—Jesus in John 12:23-24
