For Easter. Matthew 28:6.


When Jesus Christ was walking on the earth,
Proclaiming the reign of God,
The powerful were threatened by his love.
They took him and killed him.
But after three days,

Christ is risen, who was dead.
Christ is risen now.
Christ is risen, like he said.
Christ is risen. Christ is risen now.

The church of Christ is living in the world,
Proclaiming the reign of God.
This whole good earth is reconciled to God
Through Jesus—who died,
But death couldn't keep him.

The risen Christ is living in the world,
Unfolding the reign of God.
This reign will bring true justice to the earth,
Through Jesus—who's living,
Now and forever.
