Tim Hughes - Happy Day Lyrics

The greatest day in history
Death is beaten, you have rescued me
Sing it out Jesus is alive
The empty cross, the empty grave
Life eternal You have won the day
Shout it out, Jesus is alive
He's alive

Oh happy day, happy day
You washed my sin away
Oh happy day, happy day
I'll never be the same
Forever I am changed

When I stand, in that place
Free at last, meeting face to face
I am Yours Jesus You are mine
Endless joy, perfect peace
Earthly pain finally will cease
Celebrate, Jesus is alive
He's alive

Oh what a glorious day
What a glorious way
That You have saved me
Oh what a glorious day
What a glorious name

    Connor M.

    You are a real Jew if you've received the Messiah Yeshua! :)


    Connor McKemy maybe it is ex Jehovahs Witnesses :-)

  20. thechosennerf

    I mainly appreciate music because of chords and form. The lyrics are tuned out unless they're profound and these simple rhyming couplets proclaiming fallacious unprovable statements about a deity I don't believe in mean nothing to me.

  21. James Rogers

    Keep singing the lyrics and especially the Christmas songs. The lyrics are not secondary, IN FACT, they are primary. He is KING and LORD.

  22. Abby Bardon

    I know the dance to this song better than I know how to spell and I'm a very good speller

  23. Akihito Oh

    Is he a Huguenot?
    He looks really French.

  24. vikkiva54

  33. Michaela Nicole

    im singing this tonight for my church :)

  34. Jack Kids

    I think it's good to play anywhere, as long as you can sing in your boots and still hit the high notes!
    Try also: There's a Battle Raging (Just one touch from the King)- Godfrey & Gill Birtill;
    Servant & King (Love Come Down); Bless the Lord, O My Soul (10,000 reasons) - or anything associated with Matt Redman; Each Morning When I Rise (Great is Your faithfulness) - Marc James. Hope you find something that suits, there is a lot of wonderful stuff out there. - Kingsway Songs for scores, etc

  35. 유정무

    I am korean.
    Good worship song!!!
    Oh! happy day

  36. Abigail Wood

    would this be good to play at vbs? and do you know any good songs to play?

  37. Kenworth Peters

    doesn't mean that all will accept Him as their Savior, oh how sad!

  38. Sam Miller

    Met this guy the other week, talked to him for a bit, such a great guy and the song is amazing! Yes Jesus!!!

  39. Gabi T.

    I played the drums in this song on a youth conference with more than 500 youth.. it was amazing... all them jumping around... just great...

  40. Josh Belden

  43. Michael Fiedler

    all atheist will sooner or later turn to christ . every knee will bow.........

  44. thechosennerf

    @slamer2000 Not believing in God doesn't stop me appreciating pop music. I like the energy in this song, and the chords; the lyrics are secondary. I think that's a very silly statement, akin to saying that I'm not an atheist if I sing Christmas carols.

  45. slamer2000

    @thechosennerf then your not an atheist? :p

  46. beto88keys

    @thechosennerf then you are not much of an atheist

  47. Michael Fiedler

    @thechosennerf music is the most powerful Essence of life.

    Jesus is alive! woop woop!

  84. TheDapter

    O what glorious day!

  85. Ellie Hart

    @gduggy91 Sorry I'd have to argue on that one =P God made us, and as we can see from the fact he made Adam and Eve - he intended them to marry and re-produce, he gave us free will, and because of that we are easily led into sin and temptation we manipulated that free will, we done wrong in the eyes of God. The bible says two people of the same sex shouldn't ACT on homosexuality, you can be gay but just not have sex with boys.... ya know? But yeah, God will forgive us whatever we do. x

  86. gduggy91

    @mrAndeed what i believe about homosexuality is that yes it's a sin but god made us and surely a homosexual was made in the eyes of god.....am i right???? people can't chose whether to have sexual relations/acts with the same human sex, it's what they are

  87. gduggy91

    @BurntOakTree i dont think it is mate, its for the older generation like 18+.

  88. gduggy91

    this was played at momentum 2010 and i danced everywhere in the big top not giving a care in the world about others around me coz i was happy that my asthma was taken away!!!

  89. Josh How

    @xxktdarcyxx He loves the socks of you mate, and always will do. :) I've struggled in the past a lot but the one thing I will always no is that he will protect me through anything and that If he loves me enough to die for me what else can he do?? :-)
    ”So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened. Luke 11: 9-12

  90. Emily Mathews

    I had to sing this song in front of people with a mic and hardly knowing it at all! lol! I had heard it like once or twice before so...it was difficult. plus, the words were behind me because the guitarists needed to see the music too! haha but I love this song now!

  91. EJ Farley

    @Faazeh amen

  92. Heather Rowlison

    At camp we sang this song, and it was the first song that i sang with the boy i fell in love with
