Original Key: D


Verse 1:
      D
It's rising up from coast to coast,
                         Bm7      A
From north to south, and east to west;
     D
The cry of hearts that love your name,
                        Bm7      A    D
Which with one voice we will proclaim.
Verse 2:
     D
The former things have taken place,
                     Bm7    A
Can this be the new day of praise?
   D
A heav'nly song that comes to birth,
                   Bm7       A
And reaches out to all the earth.
Pre-Chorus:
    Em7            Am7
Oh, let the cry to nations ring,
   G          A
that all may come and all may sing:
  Chorus:
   D    G       D
  'Holy is the Lord.' (Every heart sing:)
   Bm7  G       A                                         D
  'Holy is the Lord.' (With one voioce sing:) [Repeat] [2]
Verse 3:
    D
And we have heard the Lion's roar,
                         Bm7       A
That speaks of heaven's love and power.
    D
Is this the time, is this the call
                     Bm7      A
That ushers in Your kingdom rule?
  Final Chorus:
   D     G    D
  'Jesus is alive!' (Every heart sing:)
   Bm7   G    A
  'Jesus is alive!' (With one voioce sing:)
   D     G    D
  'Jesus is alive!' (All the earth sing:)
   Bm7   G    A     D
  'Jesus is alive!' 

IT'S RISING UP from coast to coast,
From north to south, and east to west;
The cry of hearts that love Your name,
Which with one voice we will proclaim.

The former things have taken place,
Can this be the new day of praise?
A heavenly song that comes to birth,
And reaches out to all the earth.
Oh, let the cry to nations ring,
That all may come and all may sing:

'Holy is the Lord.' (Every heart sing:)
'Holy is the Lord.' (With one voice sing:)
'Holy is the Lord.' (Every heart sing:)
'Holy is the Lord.'

And we have heard the Lion's roar,
That speaks of heaven's love and power.
Is this the time, is this the call
That ushers in Your kingdom rule?
Oh, let the cry to nations ring,
That all may come and all may sing:

;'Jesus is alive!' (Every heart sing:)...
