ULF CHRISTIANSSON (of Jerusalem) – Risen – LIVE Music Video Home Jerusalem ULF CHRISTIANSSON (of Jerusalem) – Risen – LIVE Music Video 0 COMMENTS This is Ulf Christiansson’s inspiring LIVE version of Jerusalem’s 1994 song, “Risen.” As with most Jerusalem songs, Ulf authored the lyrics and music himself. It is an auto-biographical story that reaches into Ulf’s past and details his journey from darkness into the light of Jesus. I love this song. It’s easily one of my favorite Christian Rock songs of all time. The original album version of this song can be heard/viewed here. The CD can be purchased on Amazon or directly from the band here: Jerusalem.se “Risen” LYRICS: When I was a little boy I had my special place to get my ice cream And the lady at the candy store Was always so nice to me And when I was old enough for school I remembered they picked on me Because I had red hair and freckles on my face And I always was wondering What was behind the clouds And if God had a house to live in On cold winter nights (in Sweden) He’s no longer in His grave He is risen from the dead He’s no longer in His grave He is risen from the dead! And when I was thirteen I started to play in different bands I tried to be the Beatles And I didn’t do so hot in school And I didn’t care and too much about anything I started to use drugs The devil he worked hard on me But one day there was Jesus knocking on my door Asking, “Do you wanna be be a singer in My band?” He’s no longer in His grave He is risen from the dead He’s no longer in His grave Jesus is risen from the dead!
