A most peculiar thing has happened to me

if it's happened to you, you would have to agree

I've met a savior who has lived and has died

he was buried in a tomb but now he's alive


He's alive, He's alive, and He lives within me

He gave life to this sinner, I had only to believe

I would have climbed the highest mountain, sailed the roughest sea

searched the world over, for my Jesus to see


But the strangest things always happen to me

I couldn't find Him till I fell to my knee's

then I found the way, the truth and the life

He's God's only Son, He's the risen Christ
