How can it be? The one who died

HOW CAN IT BE? THE ONE WHO DIED
has born our sin through sacrifice
to conquer every sting of death;
sing, sing hallelujah.

2 For joy awakes as dawning light
when Christ’s disciples lift their eyes.
Alive he stands, their Friend and King;
Christ, Christ he is risen.

Christ is risen, he is risen indeed!
O sing hallelujah!
Join the chorus, sing with the redeemed:
Christ is risen, he is risen indeed.

3 Where doubt and darkness once had been,
they saw him and their hearts believed;
but blessed are those who have not seen
yet sing ‘Hallelujah.’

4 Once bound by fear, now bold in faith,
they preached the truth and power of grace;
and pouring out their lives they gained
life, life everlasting.

Christ is risen, he is risen indeed!…

5 The power that raised him from the grave
now works in us to powerfully save.
He frees our hearts to live his grace;
go, tell of his goodness.

Christ is risen, he is risen indeed!…
(sing twice)

CODA:
He is risen!
He’s alive! He’s alive!
Heaven’s gates are opened wide!
He’s alive! He’s alive!
Now in heaven glorified!
He’s alive! He’s alive!
Heaven’s gates are opened wide!
He’s alive! He’s alive!
Now in heaven glorified!
