Risen Lord
Elizabeth & John Tolson

Risen Lord, we know since that Easter morning You're alive
And You walk on this earth.
So many people saw You here - proving that You still live.
Risen Lord, surely none can still deny that You're alive
That You walk on this earth:
And to the hearts of Christians here comfort and peace You give.
You were not found in the empty tomb
And that great stone was rolled away.
Death no longer has control
Since the dawning of that wondrous, glorious day.
Risen Lord, to a group of sad disciples You appeared
And they knew that You live.
Sadness is changed to instant joy when we believe You live!

Raised on high, on the day of Your Ascension You were raised -
To Your Father You went.
Leaving behind to watch and wait - saying that help would come.
Watch and pray for we know that power is coming from on high
As You graciously said.
Praying as one with true accord, knowing that Power will come.
The Comforter, from the Heavenly King,
Gives Power that rolls all doubt away.
Fear no longer has control
Since the dawning of that wondrous, glorious day.
Mighty Power, to a group of Your disciples was first given
And they spoke in Your Name.
Fear became changed to instant joy
When they first spoke in Your Name!

Mighty Power. which at Pentecost descended from on high
And which comes to us still.
God's Holy Spirit helps us care - telling that Christ still lives.
Mighty Power, freely given so that God shares in each task,
Helping us when we ask.
Nothing we fear when You are there, we feel the Power You give.
Spirit Divine, from the Father came after His Son returned to Him.
We no longer are alone
Since the dawning of that wondrous, glorious day.
Risen Lord, by Your death and resurrection, Power is given.
We can speak in Your Name
Banishing fear, we feel the joy
When we speak in Your Name!
