Sangtekst

Walking on solid water
Swimming in liquid earth
The Saviour gave us quarter:
A new life and birth

A grinding noise as the stone rolled away
A gaping hole were forces at play
A funny smell but nobody there
A frightened yell but nobody dare:

Was he the truth that he always said
Was he the ransom for souls to be paid
Was he the champion from three days in hell
Was he the saviour with flowing well

Walking on solid water
Swimming in liquid earth
The Saviour gave us quarter:
A new life and birth

No boundaries could ever hold him fast
The Darkness could never hold him at last
He visited us as we hid in our jail
Begging to touch his body so frail

(bridge:)
Joy to the ones that believe without seeing
Joy to the ones that relieve without fleeing
Joy to the labourers in the new birth
Joy will never sink in water nor earth

Walking on solid water
Swimming in liquid earth
Our Saviour gave us quarter:
A new life and birth
