Who but You
Could breathe and leave a trail of galaxies and dream of me
What kind of love
Is writing my story till the end with mercy’s pen
Only You

What kind of king
Would choose to wear a crown that bleeds and scars to win my heart
What kind of love
Tells me I’m the reason He can’t stay inside the grave
You, is it You
Standing here before my eyes, every part of my heart cries

Alive, alive
Look what mercy’s overcome, death has lost and love has won
Alive, alive
Hallelujah, risen Lord, the only One I fall before
I am His because He is alive

Who could speak
And send the demons back from where they came with just one name
What other heart would let itself be broken every time till He healed mine
You, only You
Could turn my darkness into dawn, running right into Your arms

Emmanuel, the promised King, the baby who made angels sing
Son of Man who walked with us, healing, breathing in our dust
The author of all history, the answer to all mysteries
The Lamb of God who rolled away the stone in front of every grave

Alive, alive
Look what mercy’s overcome, death has lost and love has won
Alive, yeah
I am His because He is alive
Alive
