MeaningEdit

'When God gave man the choice, man chose to be his own god, and it opened the door to a power that was never meant to rule here. It's a power that's too strong for science or medicine or education or drugs or Buddha or Confucius or Mohammad. The only thing that can defeat that power is God's plan, which was to send something more powerful than our enemy. Christ is the only thing more powerful than death, and the song is about the great hope that someone's defeated the last enemy.' - Peter Furler (Newsboys) [1]

Lyrics[2]Edit

Lyrics


Verse 1:

Lay my body down on Mercy Street

Or deep beneath the darkest seas

Lay my body six feet under down in Old

Noarlunga

Right beneath the ghost gum trees


Pre-chorus:

Doesn’t matter where

You won’t find me there


Chorus:

No grave

Gonna hold my spirit down

Ain’t no grave

Hold my spirit down

Lord knows they’ll never keep me in the ground

Ain’t no grave

Hold my spirit down


Verse 2:

It’s alright mama, now don’t be sad

It’s alright, don’t cry for me

They can lock my flesh and bones up until kingdom come

But my spirit will be free


Pre-chorus:

It doesn’t matter where

You won’t find me there


Chorus:

No grave

Gonna hold my spirit down

Ain’t no grave

Hold my spirit down

Lord knows they’ll never keep me in the ground

Ain’t no grave

Hold my spirit down


Bridge:

It’s a dead end search

It’s a nowhere thread

Looking for the living down among the dead

No devil in hell

No angel above

Can separate the saints from the love of God


Chorus:

No grave

Gonna hold my spirit down

Ain’t no grave

Hold my spirit down

Lord knows they’ll never find me in the ground

Ain’t no grave

Hold my spirit down


Chorus:

No grave

Gonna hold my spirit down

Ain’t no grave

Hold my spirit down

Lord knows they’ll never keep me in the ground

Ain’t no grave

Hold my spirit down
