"Risin' up," that's what He said.
"It's My time. Let's commence this
"In three days I will be back from the dead --
There's a plan to fulfill in My life"
So many times, He'd talked in the past --
About His passion and glory
"Just like the grain used for wheat has to die,
I must die, so the wheat can arise."
He said, "I have to die first to fulfill all the signs
Risin' up through the power of My Father
And at last when the hour has come you'll know I was right
And I warned you before this -- that I had to die first"
Facing death, in Gethsemane -- Sweating blood, feeling lonely
He prayed to God, "You can take this from Me if You will,"
but He still had to die
He said, "I have to die first in this terrible fight
Risin' up through the power of My Father
And the last lonely hours I've been praying tonight
And I want you to know this -- that I have to die first"
Risin' up, hate filled the mob -- Took our Lord up to Calvary
Read the sentence, He was nailed to the cross --
But the Man that they killed is alive
He said, "I have to die first -- it's a strange way to fight
Risin' up through the power of My Father
And at last I'll arise and put the devil to flight
And I warned you before this that I had to die first"
Well I have to die first, (x6)
