(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.
