Verse 1
Looking out from His throne
the Father of light and of men
Chose to make himself known
and show us the way back to Him
Speaking wisdom and truth
into the hearts of peasants and kings
He began to unveil the word
that would change the course of all things
Pre-Chorus
With eyes wide open, all would see
Chorus
The Word is alive
and it cuts like a sword through the darkeness
With the message of life to the hopeless and afraid
Breathing life into all who believe
The word is alive
and the world and its glories will fade
but Him truth, it will not pass away
It remains yesterday and forever the same
The word is alive
Verse 2
Simple strokes on a page
Eternities secret revealed
carried on from age to age
It speaks truth to us even still
And as the rain falls from Heaven
feeds the earth before it returns
Lord, let your word fall on us
and bring forth the fruit you deserve
(Repeat Pre-Chorus & Chorus)
Ending
The word is alive
His word is alive
