MY LIFE IS BUILT ON YOUR PROMISES
Upon Your love and Your holiness
You're the solid rock on which I stand
You took my sin and You cleared the debt
Gave me life when You conquered death
Risen One, in You I'm born again

Now death has lost it's hold on me!

I'm alive, ‘cos You're alive
I'm alive, ‘cos You're alive
Breathing life, breathing life through me
Everything You chose to give
You gave it all, now I can live
Be the life, be the life in me
Jesus You're alive!


Jesus Christ, come alive in me
Jesus Christ, come alive in me
Jesus Christ, come alive in me
Jesus Christ, come alive in me, in me
Come alive
