Moved by the sound of His voice
Seas that are shaken and stirred
Can be calmed and broken for my regard

My eyes are on You
Through it all through it all
It is well
Through it all through it all
My eyes are on You
And it is well with me

Far be it from me to not believe
Even when my eyes can’t see
And this mountain that’s in front of me
Will be thrown into the midst of the sea

So let go my soul and trust in Him
The waves and wind still know His name

So Jesus You brought heaven down
My sin was great Your love was greater
What could separate us now

Death is swallowed up in victory
Through the Son
The grave has lost its sting and its grip over me
Yes (‘Cause) He has won
(Yes He has won)

To those who seek the love of a perfect father
Hope has come
To those who see the light of the risen Savior
Hope has come
Lift up your eyes lift up your head
The power of our sin is dead

Sing it louder sing it louder
Jesus has won Jesus has won
Sing it louder sing it louder
