HE HAD TO RISE

Rodney Griffin

He didn't have to open the eyes of the blind
To prove that He was Lord
And He knew they'd still doubt Him if he fed five thousand
With the lunch of one little boy
To cleanse every leaper wouldn't settle for ever
The fact that God had come down
There'd be only one proof that He was telling the truth
When His body was laid in the ground

He to rise to show He was holy
He had to rise to finish the story
To pardon iniquity He had to die
But to bring me the victory, He had to rise

If He were not living, I'd be forever bound
By the chains of evil and my strife
And if he had not risen, there'd be no hope for heaven
No chance for eternal life
But since he has conquered death's sting forever
I now have reason to shout
'Cause from a dark lonely tomb the greatest Sonlight broke through
When my Savior came walking out

He to rise to show He was holy
He had to rise to finish the story
To pardon iniquity He had to die
But to bring me the victory, He had to rise
