  1. Easter Song

    Don Fransisco ~ He's Alive

    The gates and doors were barred
    And all the windows fastened down
    I spent the night in sleeplessness
    And rose at every sound
    Half in hope of sorrow
    And half in fear the day
    Would find the soldiers breakin’ through
    To drag us all away
    And just before the sunrise
    I heard something at the wall
    The gate began to rattle
    And a voice began to call
    I hurried to the window
    Looked down into the street
    Expecting swords and torches
    And the sound of soldiers’ feet

    But there was no one there but mary
    So I went down to let her in
    John stood there beside me
    As she told me where she’d been
    She said they’ve moved him in the night
    And none of us know where
    The stone’s been rolled away
    And now his body isn’t there

    We both ran towards the garden
    Then john ran on ahead
    We found the stone and empty tomb
    Just the way that mary said
    But the winding sheet they wrapped him in
    Was just an empty shell
    And how or where they’d taken him
    Was more than I could tell

    Oh something strange had happened there
    Just what I did not know
    John believed a miracle
    But I just turned to go
    Circumstance and speculation
    Couldn’t lift me very high
    ’cause I’d seen them crucify him
    Then I saw him die

    Back inside the house again
    The guilt and anguish came
    Everything I’d promised him
    Just added to my shame
    When at last it came to choices
    I denied I knew his name
    And even if he was alive
    It wouldn’t be the same

    But suddenly the air was filled
    With a strange and sweet perfume
    Light that came from everywhere
    Drove shadows from the room
    And jesus stood before me
    With his arms held open wide
    And I fell down on my knees
    And I just clung to him and cried

    Then he raised me to my feet
    And as I looked into his eyes
    The love was shining out from him
    Like sunlight from the skies
    Guilt in my confusion
    Disappeared in sweet release
    And every fear I ever had
    Just melted into peace

    He’s alive yes he’s alive
    Yes he’s alive and I’m forgiven
    Heaven’s gates are open wide
    He’s alive yes he’s alive
    Oh he’s alive and I’m forgiven
    Heaven’s gates are open wide
    He’s alive he’s alive
    Hallelujah he’s alive
    He’s alive and I’m forgiven
    Heaven’s gates are open wide
    He’s alive he’s alive he’s alive
