We hold so close to our hearts
The cross where Jesus died
But so much more than the blood-stained cross
Is that Jesus came back to life.
The stone's been rolled away,
The tomb lay open and bare.
They looked for Him and then the angel said
That He is no longer here.
Oh, what joy they must have felt
To see Him just once more.
To eat with him, to drink with Him,
To receive Him back as Lord.
So much did He accomplish
Through His death upon the cross
And in His rising from the dead
He reconciled us back to God.
Nothing else could bridge the gap
That sin had wrenched apart.
Now we can freely go to God
And receive Christ in our hearts.
