He said good bye to the angels of heaven And He came to earth as a common man He taught us how we could love one another There was healing in His hands
There were those who believed and followed Him And there were those who wanted Him dead They thought the grave would silence Him forever But they found out instead
[Chorus] You can close your eyes You can say it's a lie You can stick your head in the sand You can turn away even try to explain He was just another man When they nailed Him to the cross by His hands and feet And the put Him in the ground Three days later everybody found out that you can't No you can't keep a good man down! No you can't keep a good man down!
I hear you say that it all sounds crazy It's a good story but it can't be true How could a man who was dead and buried Mean a thing to me and you?
Here we are two thousand years later And still the choice is just the same You can say that you don't believe it But it doesn't change a thing
[Bridge] I can take you to the hill Where they hung Him on a cross I can take to the empty tomb I can tell you He's alive 'Cause He lives in me But the rest is up to you!
