I wanted to write a song specifically about the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. A song that used the word “Resurrection.” Every good thing we have is because of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. “Risen” is the result of my special feelings for Jesus and the joy I feel, knowing that He lives!

When darkness veiled the sky the day that Jesus died In agony up on the bitter cross, They took His body down And laid it in a tomb. His friends believed that everything was lost. But when the third day came the darkness turned to light. For Mary heard her name and saw the living Christ. Risen to set the captives free. Risen to ransom you and me. To bind up every broken heart, To conquer death and sin. Risen to bring us home again. And in that barren place, the world forever changed For hope was born when Jesus rose that day. And still His wounded hands reveal the love He has For every fallen soul He came to save. And He will come again and one by one we'll rise To praise His holy name and see the living Christ Risen to set the captives free. Risen to ransom you and me, To bind up every broken heart, to conquer death and sin. Risen to bring us home again. Alleluia, He lives! Alleluia, He is Risen to set the captives free. Risen to ransom you and me, To bind up every broken heart, to conquer death and sin. Risen to bring us home again. Risen.
