Flash, flash! Jack just got the news
God is alive! God is alive!

Whoa
Whoa
Whoa
God is alive

News is comin' like a hurricane
Comin' down hard on those who live n vain
Treatin' each other funky when U know we're all the same
God is alive and this is not a game

Whoa (Oh hey)
Whoa (C'mon)
Whoa (He's alive)
God is alive

News is comin' like a dog n heat
He's lookin' 4 soldiers with strong feet
That can dance on whoever can't say His name
God is alive (listen), this is not a game

Whoa (Listen)
Whoa (Yeah, I'm a witness)
Whoa (Do U believe?) (Ooh yeah)
God is alive

All of His children come take a blissy ride
4 all who see Him, 4 all He lives inside
U can be so happy, purely satisfied
God is alive, oh!

Alive, alive!
1 step at a time, we need new rhyme (Alive)
Up with education, down with crime
Alive!

Whoa (God is alive!)
Whoa
Whoa
God is alive

Alive, alive!
God is alive! {repeat sample}
Whoa

Whoa
Whoa
Whoa
Oh yeah

Whoa (Oh)
Whoa (Oh yeah)
Whoa (Oh)

Woke me up this morning (Whoa)
Started me on my day (Whoa)
Got my health and strength, y'all (Whoa)
I can truly say...

Ooh, He's alive, yeah (Whoa)
Oh, He's alive (Whoa)
All over me (Whoa)
Oh, He's alive

(Whoa)
I'm a livin' witness (God is alive!) (Whoa)
That God's alive (Whoa)
I'm a livin' witness (God is alive!)
He's alive (God is alive!)

(Whoa)
Do U believe (whoa) that He's alive? (Whoa)
Do U believe, oh, He's alive? (God is alive!)
Ooh (God is alive!)
Yes He is, sho'nuff He is (God is alive!)
Well
(God is alive!)
Oh (God is alive!)
Every breath I breathe lets me know (God is alive!) (God is alive!)
Every step I take lets me know
Every song I sing, oh, lets me know (God is alive!) (God is alive!)
Oh, God is alive
Whoa
