Verse 1

Shame is a prison as cruel as a grave

Shame is a robber and he’s come to take my name

Love is my redeemer lifting me up from the ground

Love is the power where my freedom song is found

Chorus

There ain’t no grave gonna hold my body down

There ain’t no grave gonna hold my body down

When I hear that trumpet sound, I’m gonna rise up out of the ground

There ain’t no grave gonna hold my body down

Verse 2

Fear is a liar with a smooth and velvet tongue

Fear is a tyrant, he’s always telling me to run

Love is resurrection and love is a trumpet sound

Love is my weapon, I’m gonna take my giants down

Verse 3

There was a battle, a war between death and life

There on a tree the Lamb of God was crucified   

He went on down to hell, He took back every key

He rose up as a lion and He’s setting all the captives free

Chorus 2

There ain’t no grave could hold His body down

There ain’t no grave could hold His body down

When He heard the trumpet sound, He rose up out of the ground

There ain’t no grave could hold His body down

There ain’t no grave could hold His body down

 

There ain’t no grave could hold my body down

There ain’t no grave could hold my body down

If You walked out of the grave, I’m walkin’ too
