Easter music – Worship Songs: Ben Cantelon, The Same Power

One of the reasons I have such a large music collection is that I’ve found ways to get lots of great free music, (legally!)

Three sites in particular have helped me expand my music collection:

  • WeAreWorship.Com (there are US & UK versions of the site, you can subscribe to both), and
  • WorshipTogether.Com – both of which offer regular free downloads.
  • and Freegal (a legal free music download service which my local public library subscribes too, and which allows me, using my library card, to download 3 songs per week.)  The songs available include the entire online catalog of Sony records and their affiliated labels, so it includes albums from major artists such as Casting Crowns, Steven Curtis Chapman, Third Day, brandon Heath, MercyMe, Rich Mullins, Paul Baloche, Kari Jobe, Integrity Worship.

Through free songs I’ve downloaded from the WeAreWorship (UK) site in the past year, I’ve discovered a bunch of artists who I doubt I ever would have been exposed to otherwise.   One of those songwriters & artists is Ben Cantelon.

Tonight I thought I’d feature his song “The Same Power” which I’ve been listening to often during these first few days of Eastertide.  I love it because it so centrally focuses on the truth of Scripture, notably Ephesians 1:18-20

I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, 19 and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength 20 he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead…


Here’s a video featuring the song.

The song is available for download on the album Let it be Known, released in 2013, by Worship Central (Integrity Music).

You can get the lyrics, chords, & lead sheet at WeAreWorship.

Here are the words:

There is power in His name
For the stone was rolled away
Mountains bow down before
Jesus Christ our risen Lord
Jesus Christ our risen Lord

Mighty Saviour lifted high
King forever Jesus Christ
Crowned in glory raised to life
The same power lives in us

We will rise, stand and sing
Of our great and matchless King
Seated high on the throne
You shall reign forevermore
You shall reign forevermore

The grave could not contain
The power of His name
Death, You overcame
Once and for all
