Today’s song by Andrew Peterson seeks to capture the remarkable meaning of Jesus’s miraculous Easter resurrection: “His Heart Beats”

He took one breath

And put death to death

Where is your sting

Oh grave, how grave is your defeat

I know, I know His heart beats

Today, let us rejoice in our ultimate freedom bought by Jesus’s death and celebrate His unfathomable desire to bring us closer to Him for all eternity.

Thanks for listening today.


Here are the lyrics in full:

His heart beats
His blood begins to flow
Waking up what was dead a moment ago
And His heart beats
Now everything has changed
'Cause the blood that bought us peace with God
Is racing through His veins
And His heart beats
His heart beats

He breathes in
His living lungs expand
The heavy air surrounding death
Turns to breath again
He breathes out
He is Word and flesh once more
The Lamb of God slain for us is a lion ready to roar
And His heart beats

So crown Him the Lord of life
Crown Him the Lord of love
Crown Him the Lord of all
He took one breath
And put death to death
Where is your sting
Oh grave, how grave is your defeat
I know, I know His heart beats

He rises
Glorified in flesh
Clothed in immortality
The firstborn from the dead
He rises
And His work's already done
So He's resting as He rises to reclaim the bride He won
And His heart beats

So crown Him the Lord of life
Crown Him the Lord of love
Crown Him the Lord of all
He took one breath
And put death to death
Where is your sting
Oh grave, how grave is your defeat
I know, I know His heart beats

The last enemy to be destroyed is death
The last enemy to be destroyed is death
He must reign until no enemy is left
The last enemy to be destroyed, to be destroyed is death

His heart beats
He will never die again
I know that death no longer has dominion over Him
So my heart beats
With the rhythm of the saints
As I look for the seeds the King has sewn
To burst up from their graves

I know, I know
He took one breath
And put death to death
Where is your sting
Oh grave, how grave is your defeat
I know, I know
He took one breath
And put death to death
Where is your sting
Oh grave, how grave is your defeat
How great, how great is His victory
I know, I know His heart beats
(Crown Him the Lord of life)
His heart beats
I know, I know His heart beats
(Crown Him the Lord of all)
His heart beats
