We'll stand against the devil's lies

Reaching out to those in darkness

When faced with trials on ev'ry side

We know the outcome is secure
                C                  F/C       G/C
And Christ will have the prize for which He died

An inheritance of nations

As the Son of God is stricken
     F/C     C                  F/A       G/B
Then see His foes lie crushed beneath His feet
        C/E    F      G  C
For the Conqueror has risen
    C/E    F                Gsus4
And as the stone is rolled away
            F/A             G/B
And Christ emerges from the grave
             C               Dm7
This vict'ry march continues till the day

Retelling triumphs of His grace

We hear their calls, and hunger for the day
          C/E       F        G   C
When with Christ we stand in glory
