Our God, He Is Alive

Representative Text

1 There is, beyond the azure blue, a God concealed from human sight, He tinted skies with heav'nly hue and framed the worlds with His great might.

Refrain: There is a God, He is alive, in Him we live, and we survive; From dust our God created man, He is our God, the great I AM.

2 There was, a long, long time ago, a God whose voice the prophets heard, He is the God that we should know, who speaks from His inspired Word. [Refrain]

3 Secure is life from mortal mind, God holds the germ within His hand, Tho' men may search, they cannot find, for God alone does understand. [Refrain]

4 Our God, whose Son upon the tree, a life was willing there to give, That He from sin might set man free, and evermore with Him could live. [Refrain]

Aaron Wesley Dicus was born in 1888 in Festus, Missouri. He was a man with high moral principles. He joined the Churches of Christ because it subscribed to the Bible alone, which appealed to his analytical, scientific mind. He made a vow to the Lord that if he received an education he would spend his life in service to the Lord. He became widely known as an evangelist, as well as a professor of physics at Tennessee Tech.
