"Very Same Power" by Israel Houghton & Ricardo Sanchez

My wife and I were so excited to go to the 30th anniversary concert of the Wheaton College Gospel Choir, and this was their opening song. I loved it so much that I had them sing it when they came to our church a few weeks later. In my humble opinion, if you sing "Very Same Power," you need to include the MA9 chord on the words "dead" and "grave," chorally if possible. Song is written by Israel Houghton and Ricardo Sanchez. Lyrics below:


Jesus, Jesus my redeemer There's no greater love than what You've given me Hallelujah! I'm forgiven And I'll never be chained again

Because the very same power that raised Christ from the dead Is alive in me And the very same power that overcame the grave It lives in me And now I am complete since He rescued me, since He rescued me I'm gonna shout it out loud


Jesus, Jesus my redeemer There's no greater love than what You've given me Hallelujah! I'm forgiven And I'll never be chained again

No more chains holding me from now on I am free. I'm gonna shout it out loud
