West Palm Beach, Florida based band, Tenth Avenue North, often sings about issues that have cultural importance as well as being songs based in Christian truths.
For this song, however, the band focuses on the most important and basic truth for Christians – that Jesus died, that He rose from the dead and that through Him we can all be free from the burden of sin.
Listen as they sing these words filled with eternal truths:
Let no one caught in sin remain
Inside the lie of inward shame
We fix our eyes upon the cross
And run to Him who showed great love
And bled for us
Freely You’ve bled for us
Christ is risen from the dead
Trampling over death by death
Come awake, come awake
Come and rise up from the grave
We’re so glad we serve a risen King!
“For we died and were buried with Christ by baptism. And just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glorious power of the Father, now we also may live new lives” (Romans 6:4 NLT).
