Lyrics and Chords

Jesus came alive in me From the album, ‘Stir into Flame’

One of the first songs written for United Folk to sing. Ken Hawker, a dear friend of ours, kindly allowed me to use his song

‘Rock of Gibraltar’ and set my own words to it. The tune had been written for a song festival, but it just seemed made for

these words which describe a conversion experience . . . mine. Sheila

Intro: F C F C G C

3C Am F

Into my life came a light, making the darkness seem bright,

Dm G C G

gone is the emptiness surrounding me, now I see!

C Am F

Spirit came down like a dove, came like a fire from above,

Dm G Dm G

resting me in His glory, telling me of His love.

Chorus:

F C F C G C G

Jesus, Jesus, Jesus came alive in me, now I see him clearly

F C F C G C

Jesus, Jesus, Jesus truly set me free!

Now I can open my heart, His word within me can start,

doing the work He wants me to each day, so I say, “Thank you!”

Letting Him into my will, moving within me until,

everything in me praises, truth has so much to tell. Chorus:

Am C F C

His peace will never leave you, if you but trust in Him.

Dm F G

Jesus is ever near you, just let Him come on in . . . Chorus:

Instrumental

If you would follow him too, seeing just what he can do,

what he has done for others, He now can do for you. Chorus

Vocalist: Mary Thompson
