HE DIDN’T STAY DOWN

VS 1
ONCE UPON A TIME OUTSIDE OF THE CITY
STOOD AND OLD RUGGED CROSS ONE DAY
ONE WAS CRUCIFIED HE WAS SHOWN NO PITY
AND WAS PLACED IN A BORROWED GRAVE
THREE DAYS LATER WHEN THE WOMEN CAME TO VISIT
AND THEY FOUND THE STONE ROLLED AWAY
THEY LIFTED HOLY HANDS AND THEY SHOUTED HALLELUJAH
WHEN THEY HEARD THE BRIGHT ANGEL SAY

CHO
HE DIDN’T STAY DOWN, HE DIDN’T STAY DOWN
CHRIST AROSE TO CLAIM HIS HEAVENLY CROWN
THE DEVIL WOULD HAVE WON IF THE SON HAD NOT COME UP
FROM THE COLD DARK GROUND
BUT JESUS DIDN’T STAY DOWN

VS 2
NOW WE’RE LIVING IN A WORLD FULL OF SORROW
AND WE PRAY FOR THE LORD’S RETURN
LOOKING LIKE WE’VE LOST ALL OUR HOPE FOR TOMORROW
AND THERE’S NOTHING LEFT FOR US TO LEARN
LEARN THIS LESSON FROM THE ONE WHO IS RISEN
AND HE SITS ON THE RIGHT HAND THRONE
JESUS IS ALIVE AND HE’S GIVEN US THE POWER
TO ARISE WITH A SONG OF HOPE
