(Verse 1)
I rose up in the morning
To glory bright.
The chains of death are broken
I am alive!
Reach out your hand and touch me
For I am real.
I come to give you comfort
And I can save you:

For I am the Resurrection,
The Resurrection and the Life.
I have returned to you.
Yes, I am the Resurrection,
That reaches through the darkest night.
Go tell the world the news.

(Verse 2)
Fear not this mortal body
This earthly grave.
I know the very nature
Of all that's made.
I go to meet my Father
And to prepare
A home for you in heaven,
Please come and join me:

(Repeat Chorus)
For I am the Resurrection,
The Resurrection and the Life.
I have returned to you.
Yes, I am the Resurrection,
That reaches through the darkest night.
Go tell the world the news.

Yes, I am the Resurrection.
Yes, I am the Resurrection.
Oh, I am the Resurrection.
The Resurrection and the Life,
The Resurrection and the Life.

Praise God for this amazing song!!
This is a wonder song! I can't sing, but somehow, I put words with the music. This will compliment the Resurrection skit for my church Easter skit/program.
I LOVE this song! It is so fresh and simple, yet special.

This song is truely a masterpiece of music describing God's most difficult task. Seeing Jesus tortured and murdered is more that I could begin to contemplate.

Elton, God truely is working through you to make wonderful music. I love "I Am The Resurection"

I gave this song to another person to sing at our church on Sunday. We had Maundy Thursday tonight and the wife of the singer commented they loved this song. Keep up the good work. I have always loved to listen to songs of praises. This one just seems like Jesus is near us even now.

This is a beautiful song. As I was listening to the song, I could picture Jesus during his resurrection. The melody is easy to learn.
This song has a beautiful melody and is easy to learn. As I was listening to it,I could just picture Jesus during His resurrection.
Such a beautiful song! I am going to use this song in my children's choir during Easter. Tune is very easy to learn. May teach it to my praise team also. Thank you for letting God use you in this manner.
