BECAUSE HE LIVES

 

 

Verse 1 (Soloist only)
God sent His son, they called Him Jesus
He came to love, heal and forgive
He lived and died to buy my pardon
An empty grave is there to prove my savior lives

Chorus (Champions Kids Choir)
Because He lives, I can face tomorrow
Because He lives, all fear is gone
Because I know He holds the future
And life is worth the living, just because He lives

Verse 2 (Soloist only)
How sweet to hold a newborn baby
And feel the pride and joy He gives
But greater still the calm assurance
This child can face uncertain day, because He lives

Chorus (Soloist + Champions Kids Choir + Worship team)
Because He lives, I can face tomorrow
Because He lives, all fear is gone
Because I know He holds the future
And life is worth the living, just because He lives

Verse 3 (Soloist + Worship team)
And then one day, I’ll cross the river
I’ll fight life’s final war with pain
And then, as death gives way to victory
I’ll see the lights of glory and I’ll know He lives

Chorus (Soloist + Champions Kids Choir + Worship team)
Because He lives, I can face tomorrow
Because He lives, all fear is gone
Because I know He holds the future
And life is worth the living, just because He lives


GLORIOUS DAY

 

 

Verse 1 (Worship team)
I was buried beneath my shame
Who could carry that kind of weight
It was my tomb
Till I met You

Verse 2 (Worship Team )
I was breathing, but not alive
All my failures I tried to hide
It was my tomb
Till I met You

Chorus (Worship Team + Champions Kids Choir)
You called my name
And I ran out of that grave!
Out of the darkness
Into Your glorious day

Chorus (Worship Team + Champions Kids Choir)
You called my name
And I ran out of that grave!
Out of the darkness
Into Your glorious day

Verse 3 (Worship team)
Now Your mercy has saved my soul
Now Your freedom is all I know
The old made new
Jesus, when I met You

Chorus (Worship Team + Champions Kids Choir)
You called my name
And I ran out of that grave!
Out of the darkness
Into Your glorious day

Chorus (Worship Team + Champions Kids Choir)
You called my name
And I ran out of that grave!
Out of the darkness
Into Your glorious day

Bridge (Worship Team)
I needed rescue
My sin was heavy
But chains break at the weight of Your glory
I needed shelter I was an orphan
Now You call me a citizen of heaven
When I was broken You were my healing
Your love is the air that I’m breathing
I have a future
My eyes are open

Chorus (Worship Team + Champions Kids Choir)
‘Cause You called my name
I ran out of that grave!
Out of the darkness
Into Your glorious day

Chorus (Worship Team + Champions Kids Choir)
You called my name
I came runnin’ out of that grave


GRACE TO GRACE

 

 

Verse 1
If love endured that ancient cross
How precious is my Savior’s blood
The beauty of heaven wrapped in my shame
The image of love upon death’s frame

Pre-Chorus 2
If having my heart was worth the pain
What joy could You see beyond the grave
If love found my soul worth dying for

Chorus
How wonderful, how glorious
My Savior’s scars victorious
My chains are gone, my debt is paid
From death to life and grace to grace

Verse
If heaven now owns that vacant tomb
How great is the hope that lives in You
The passion that tore through hell like a rose
The promise that rolled back death and its stone

Pre-Chorus 2
If freedom is worth the life You raised
Oh where is my sin, where is my shame?
If love paid it all to have my heart
How wonderful, how glorious
My Savior’s scars victorious
My chains are gone, my debt is paid
From death to life and grace to grace

Bridge
When I see that cross, I see freedom
When I see that grave, I’ll see Jesus
And from death to life, I will sing Your praise
In the wonder of Your grace

Bridge
When I see that cross, I see freedom
When I see that grave, I’ll see Jesus
And from death to life, I will sing Your praise
In the wonder of Your grace

Bridge 2
How my soul will sing Your praise
In the wonder of Your grace
How my soul will sing Your praise

Chorus
How wonderful, how glorious
My Savior’s scars victorious
My chains are gone, my debt is paid
From death to life and grace to grace


CHAMPION

 

 

Verse 1
O Victory, You have won
Victorious, You have come
What was stolen, You brought back to us

Chorus
Our Champion, You fight for us
You made a way where there was none
Our Champions, You’re strong in us
The debt we owed, You paid in blood

Verse 2
The One in whom we belong
We’ll lift our voice, join Your song
We were orphaned, now forever Yours

Chorus
Our Champion, You fight for us
You made a way where there was none
Our Champions, You’re strong in us
The debt we owed, You paid in blood

Bridge
We will shout it out from the mountain-tops
That our God is good, He has overcome
Let all the earth, every tribe and tongue
We will sing it out, He has overcome
