He's Alive ...that will always be "GOOD NEWS"

THE GATES AND DOORS WERE BARRED AND ALL THE WINDOWS FASTENED DOWN

I SPENT THE NIGHT IN SLEEPLESSNESS AND ROSE AT EVERY SOUND

HALF IN HOPELESS SORROW AND HALF IN FEAR THE DAY

WOULD FIND THE SOLDIERS BREAKING THROUGH TO DRAG US ALL AWAY

AND JUST BEFORE THE SUNRISE I HEARD SOMETHING AT THE WALL

THE GATE BEGAN TO RATTLE AND A VOICE BEGAN TO CALL

I HURRIED TO THE WINDOW AND LOOKED DOWN INTO THE STREET

EXPECTING SWORDS AND TORCHES AND THE SOUND OF SOLDIERS FEET

THERE WAS NO ONE THERE BUT MARY

SO I WENT DOWN TO LET HER IN

JOHN STOOD THERE BESIDE ME AS SHE TOLD US WHERE SHE'D BEEN

SHE SAID THEY'VE MOVED HIM IN THE NIGHT AND NONE OF US KNOWS

WHERETHE STONE'S BEEN ROLLED AWAY AND NOW HIS BODY ISN'T THERE

WE BOTH RAN T'WARD THE GARDEN AND THEN JOHN RAN ON AHEAD

WE FOUND THE STONE AND THE EMPTY TOMB JUST THE WAY THAT MARY SAID

BUT THE WINDING SHEET THEY WRAPPED HIM IN WAS JUST AN EMPTY SHELL

AND HOW OR WHERE THEY'D TAKEN HIM WAS MORE THAN I COULD TELL

SOMETHING STRANGE HAD HAPPENED THERE JUST WHAT I DIDN'T KNOW

JOHN BELIEVED A MIRACLE BUT I JUST TURNED TO GO

CIRCUMSTANCE AND SPECULATION DIDN'T LIFT ME VERY HIGH

'CAUSE I'D SEEN THEM CRUCIFY HIM, AND THEN I SAW HIM DIE

BACK INSIDE THE HOUSE AGAIN THE GUILT AND ANGUISH CAME

EVERYTHING I'D PROMISED HIM JUST ADDED TO MY SHAME

WHEN AT LAST IT CAME TO CHOICES I DENIED I KNEW HIS NAME

AND EVEN IF HE WAS ALIVE, IT WOULDN'T BE THE SAME

SUDDENLY THE AIR WAS FILLED WITH A STRANGE AND SWEET PERFUME

LIGHT THAT CAME FROM EVERYWHERE DROVE SHADOWS FROM THE ROOM

JESUS STOOD BEFORE ME WITH HIS ARMS HELD OPEN WIDE

AND I FELL DOWN ON MY KNEES AND I JUST CLUNG TO HIM AND CRIED

HE RAISED ME TO MY FEET AND AS I LOOKED INTO HIS EYES

LOVE WAS SHINING OUT FROM THEM LIKE SUNLIGHT FROM THE SKIES

GUILT AND MY CONFUSION DISAPPEARED IN SWEET RELEASE

AND EVERY FEAR I'D EVERY HAD JUST MELTED INTO PEACE

HE'S ALIVE, HE'S ALIVE, HE'S ALIVE AND I'M FORGIVEN

HEAVEN'S GATES ARE OPENED WIDE(REPEAT CHORUS TWO MORE TIMES)

HE'S ALIVE, HE'S ALIVE, HE'S ALIVE . . . HE'S ALIVE

Ms Gomez,

I have just noticed that you've been over to http://manilabaywatch.blogspot.com

Thank you for dropping by.

It may not mean anything to you but I've met your son, been a visitor in your home and have at one time discussed business with him while his father was still VP.

We also happen to share a fondness for dogs.

Dear Adb,
I think that dogs are one of those creatures made simply to love us unconditionally. I share the same love for dogs too, in fact, we have so many of them and they bring me joy :)

hi! i love your music and if it's true that you will be mayor i will vote for you because i like your music. i love don francisco but he is not as appreciated as doem moen. me and my friends from the greenhills christian fellowship are always here to see your music videos. we love this, also "we are the reason" and also "mary did yoiu know". we know that you will be a good leader because your music is always very very inspired.
we love mayor jv because he hs been always good with our fellowship so we cant make any mistake since you as a mother also is an inspired leader sent by the lord.

I am glad you like my music. I agree, it does inspire and keep us in track. Thank you for your very kind comments about my son JV. I am sure he will always have to do his best to serve because as he would always say : "by serving the people well, he is also serving the Lord."

hi we are here nanaman po. listening. thank you for replying. we were looking at the new song and my bible study leader said that from this site anyone can disern that you love jesus so much. tonight po, we were always at the new "imagine me without you". it is comforting.

mayor jv is the best and now we know kaya pala he's liek that kabait because he has a mother who loves jesus.
