“His Heart Beats”: A Song for Resurrection Sunday

In this song, Andrew Peterson captures the soul-thrilling beauty and life-changing significance of the Resurrection of Jesus. Be encouraged this Easter season as we remember and proclaim: “Christ has died; Christ is risen; Christ will come again!”


Verse 1:
His heart beats, His blood begins to flow
Waking up what was dead a moment ago
And His heart beats, now everything is changed
‘Cause the blood that brought us peace with God
Is racing through His veins
And His heart beats

Verse 2:
He breathes in, His living lungs expand
The heavy air surrounding death turns to breath again
He breathes out, He is word and flesh once more
The Lamb of God slain for us is a Lion ready to roar
And His heart beats

Pre-Chorus:
So crown Him the Lord of Life
Crown Him the Lord of Love
Crown Him the Lord of All

Chorus:
He took one breath
And put death to death
Where is your sting, O grave?
How grave is your defeat
I know, I know His heart beats

Verse 3:
He rises, glorified in flesh
Clothed in immortality, the firstborn from the dead
He rises, and His work’s already done
So He’s resting as He rises to reclaim the Bride He won
And His heart beats

Bridge:
The last enemy to be destroyed is death
The last enemy to be destroyed is death
He must reign until no enemy is left
The last enemy to be destroyed, to be destroyed is death

Verse 4:
His heart beats, He will never die again
I know that death no longer has dominion over Him
So my heart beats with the rhythm of the saints
As I look for the seeds the King has sown
To burst up from their graves

I know, I know…

Chorus:
He took one breath
And put death to death
Where is your sting, O grave?
How grave is your defeat

I know, I know He took one breath
And put death to death
Where is your sting, O grave?
How grave is your defeat
How great, how great is His victory

I know, I know His heart beats
