Death Was Arrested (North Point)

Blessed and holy is the one who has a part in the first resurrection; over these the second death has no power, but they will be priests of God and of Christ and will reign with Him for a thousand years. Revelation 20:6 NASB

For while we were still helpless, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. For one will hardly die for a righteous man; though perhaps for the good man someone would dare even to die. But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:6–8 NASB

VERSE 1
Alone in my sorrow and dead in my sin
Lost without hope with no place to begin
Your love made a way to let mercy come in
When death was arrested and my life began

VERSE 2
Ash was redeemed only beauty remains
My orphan heart was given a name
My mourning grew quiet, my feet rose to dance
When death was arrested and my life began

CHORUS
Oh, Your grace so free, washes over me
You have made me new, now life begins with You
It’s Your endless love, pouring down on us
You have made us new, now life begins with You

VERSE 3
Released from my chains, I’m a prisoner no more
My shame was a ransom He faithfully bore
He cancelled my debt and He called me His friend
When death was arrested and my life began

CHORUS
Oh, Your grace so free, washes over me
You have made me new, now life begins with You
It’s Your endless love, pouring down on us
You have made us new, now life begins with You

VERSE 4
Our Savior displayed on a criminal’s cross
Darkness rejoiced as though heaven had lost
But then Jesus arose with our freedom in hand
That’s when death was arrested and my life began

CHORUS
Oh, Your grace so free, washes over me
You have made me new, now life begins with You
It’s Your endless love, pouring down on us
You have made us new, now life begins with You

BRIDGE
Oh, we’re free, free, forever we’re free
Come join the song of all the redeemed
Yes, we’re free, free, forever amen
When death was arrested and my life began
