Verse 1:
Eb2             Bb
    Beyond this lifetime,
Eb2             Bb               Fadd4
    Beyond this darkness there's light:
Eb2               Bb
    Your cross is shining,
Eb2            Bb         Fadd4
    So people, open your eyes.    [to Chorus]

          Eb            Bb
      The cross stands above it all,
      Gm             Fadd4
      Burning bright in this life;
          Eb           Bb       Fadd4
      The cross towers over it all.
          Eb          Bb
      One hope, one Deliverer:
      Gm               Fadd4             Eb5
      Saviour reigning high above it all,
      Above it all.
           Eb  Bb   Gm  Fadd4  
           Eb  Bb   Fadd4

Verse 2:
Eb2                  Bb
    These chains are breaking,
Eb2              Bb           Fadd4
    Your love is shaking us free;
Eb2          Bb
    A great awakening
Eb                  Bb        Fadd4    F
    This world will finally see.    [to Chorus]

Mid section:

It is finished, He has won.

Christ has over - come;

We're standing strong.    [Repeat, then to Chorus]
