Can't Keep A Good Man Down

He said goodbye to the angels of heaven
And He came to earth as a common man
He taught us how we could love one another
There was healing in His hands

There were those who believed and followed Him
And there were those who wanted Him dead
They thought the grave would silence Him forever
But they found out instead

you can close your eyes
You can say it's a lie
you can stick your head in the sand
You can turn away and try to explain
He was just another man
When they nailed Him to the cross
by His hands and His feet
and they put Him in the ground
Three days later everybody found out that ya can't
No you can't keep a good man down, no
No you can't keep a good man down

I hear you say that it all sound crazy
It's a good story but it can't be true
how could a man who was dead and buried
Mean a thing to you and me

Here we are a thousand years later
And still the choice is just the same
You can say ya don't believe it
But it doesn't change a thing


I can take you to the hill
where they hung Him on a cross
I can take you to the empty tomb
I can tell you He's alive 'cause He lives in me
But the rest is up to you
