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

With eyes wide open, all would see

 

CHORUS:

The Word is alive

and it cuts like a sword through the darkness

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

 

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

With eyes wide open, all would see

 

CHORUS:
The Word is alive

and it cuts like a sword through the darkness

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

 

The word is alive

His word is alive
