When darkness veiled
the sky the day that Jesus died
In agony upon the bitter cross

They took His body down
and laid it in a tomb

His friends believed that everything was last.

But when the third day came, the darkness turned to light
For Mary heard her name and saw the living Christ.

(Chorus)
Risen, To set the captives free
Risen, to ransom you and me
To bind up every broken heart
To conquer death and sin.

Risen, To bring us home again.


And in that barren place the world forever changed
For hope was born when Jesus rose that day

And still His wounded have revealed the love He has
For every fallen soul He came to save

And He will come again, and I’ve by one we’ll rise
To praise His Holy Name and see the Living Christ.

(Chorus)
Risen to set the captives free
Risen to ransom you and me
To bind up every broken heart
To conquer death and sin.

Risen To bring us home again.

Alleluia, He lives
Alleluia, He is ……

Risen To set the captives free
Oh he is Risen to ransom you and me
To bind up every broken heart
To conquer death and sin.
Risen To bring us home again

Risen
