If you’re a fan of what we do, would you consider supporting us with a one-off or regular gift?
Resound Worship is a ministry of the Song and Hymn Writers Foundation, a charity dedicated to publishing quality worship songs as well as training, resourcing and influencing worship songwriters from the grass roots to published composers. We’d really value your support.

1.We believe in our suffering saviour,
Jesus Christ hung upon the cross,
sinless man, ruler of creation;
in his death we see mercy's cost.
As we trust in our suffering saviour,
our hope remains:

Christ has died,
Christ is risen,
Christ will come again.
Christ has died,
Christ is risen,
Christ will come again.

2.We rejoice in our living saviour.
On the third day he rose from death.
As the Spirit of Christ lives in us,
we are raised in his righteousness.
We give praise to our living saviour,
lift high his name:

3.We have hope in our coming saviour,
in the day when in Christ we'll rise,
made anew with the whole creation,
sharing his everlasting life.
As we wait for our coming saviour,
we will proclaim:

"Great is the mystery of faith - Christ has died, Christ is risen, Christ will come again." Often in church worship we can be good at remembering the cross, but not so hot on the equally magnificent truths of Jesus' resurrection and second coming. The three verses of this song approach these topics in turn. I was particularly keen to celebrate the second coming as a time when God renews heaven and earth, putting creation back the way it was meant to be. I tried to keep the music catchy and singable, with straightforward chords that I think any church worship band can pick up quickly.

Fantastic! Really easy to teach, brilliant words that lift minds and hearts, and a chorus that works brilliantly tagged on the end of other songs/times of sung worship
