Arise My Love Lyrics
[Verse 1]
Not a word was heard at the tomb that day
Just shuffling of soldiers' feet as they guarded the grave
One day, two days, three days had passed
Could it be that Jesus breathed His last?

Could it be that His Father had forsaken Him?
Turned His back on His Son, despising our sin
All hell seemed to whisper, "Just forget it, He's dead"
Then the Father looked down to His Son and said…

[Chorus]
Arise, My Love Arise, My Love
The grave no longer has a hold on You
No more Death's sting No more suffering
Arise…Arise…My Love.

[Verse 2]
The Earth trembled and the tomb began to shake,
And like lightening from Heaven, the stone was rolled away.
And this dead Man the guards they all stood there in fright
As the power of Love displayed its might
And suddenly a melody filled the air
Riding wings of wind, it was everywhere
The words all creation had been longing to hear
The sweet sound of victory, so loud and clear.

[Chorus]

[Bridge]
Sin, where are your shackles? Death, where is your sting?
Hell has been defeated The grave could not hold
The King!

[Chorus]
Arise, My Love
Arise, My Love
The grave no longer has a hold on You
No more Death's sting,
No more suffering
Arise...Arise...

[Bridge]
Sin...where are your shackles?
Death...where is your sting?
Hell has been defeated
And the grave could not hold...
The King!!

[Chorus]
Arise, My Love
Arise, My Love
The grave no longer has a hold on You
No more death's sting
No more suffering
Arise...Arise...My Love
