I Will Arise

Silence fell upon the hill the day that Jesus died
He cried out it is finished and hope was crucified
The soldiers mocked and gambled for the robe that He had worn
The women wept His friends had fled, creation seemed to mourn

They took His broken body down and carried Him away
They laid Him in a borrowed tomb and then they sealed the grave
Hope it seemed was dead
Yet in their darkest hour would they remember what He said

I will arise
I will arise
like the sun at dawn's first light
I will arise
you can bury Me that day
seal the tomb and turn away
but the power of the grave will be denied
I will arise!
