CCM Classics for Easter – Dallas Holm “Rise Again” (1977)

Coming back to our CCM Classics for Easter series….

This afternoon, I’m featuring Dallas Holm’s Rise Again, from 1977.   Originally released on the  Dallas Holm and Praise Live album, this song won multiple Dove Awards in 1977:  Song of the year, Songwriter of the year, Male Vocalist of the year, and Group of the year.  Pretty good for a song Dallas Holm recalls that he wrote in ten minutes!

The original live version of the song from 1977 is available for purchase online from the Dallas Holm Early Works collection, or you can purchase it direct from Dallas Holm’s website.

Here are the lyrics

Go ahead, drive the nails in My hands
Laugh at me where you stand
Go ahead, and say it isn’t Me
The day will come when you will see

‘Cause I’ll rise again
Ain’t no power on earth can tie me down!
Yes, I’ll rise again
Death can’t keep Me in the ground

Go ahead, mock My name
My love for you is still the same
Go ahead, and bury Me
But very soon, I will be free!

‘Cause I’ll rise again
Ain’t no power on earth can tie me down!
Yes, I’ll rise again
Death can’t keep Me in the ground

Go ahead and say I’m dead and gone
But you will see that you were wrong
Go ahead, try to hide the Son
But all will see that I’m the One!

‘Cause I’ll come again!
Ain’t no power on earth can keep Me back!
Yes, I’ll come again
Come to take My people back
