Made Alive!

1     And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins,2 in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience,3 among whom also we all once conducted ourselves in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, just as the others.

4          But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us,5 even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved),6 and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus,7 that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.8 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God,9 not of works, lest anyone should boast.10 For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.

The dead was made alive

Given new lease of life

Because of His great love

We were born from above

Those who groped in darkness

Were brought into His brightness

Those who were lost in the world

Were rescued by God-the Word

Oh what great love and mercy

That the blind were made to see

We were raised from the gutter of life

And bestowed abundant life

Given the God-kind of life

To live for ever and die no more

He came and opened the door

He came and raised us from the floor

Gave super abundant riches to the poor.

And lavished on us His grace

So that we might see His face.



Yes by grace He saved us

By His mercy He justified us

And by His blood He redeemed us

He made atonement for us

And for good works He called us.



Now we are sitting with Him in Heaven

That is our abode and our haven

Glory be to the Most High God!
