Dmitri’s Song (Jesus Is Alive)

My name is Dmitri, I was born a Russian man
I was a factory worker, until 1960 and
Started teaching the bible, to my two little boys
And that’s when the journey began

Well our house became a church
And the Sunday school grew
Had 150 before we knew it
But the KGB didn’t want God around
17 years they locked me up 1,000 miles away

This is my heart song, I will stand and sing
For I am a son of the living King
So when the fire comes I’ll be rejoicing
Even when I suffer I’ll be singing
Ooohh Jesus us alive, Ooohh Jesus us alive

Despite 1,500 prisoners, criminal to the core
Who’d laugh and curse and bang their cups
And try to drown me out
Like clockwork every morning with the rising of the sun
I’d stand and raise my hands and sing my heart song up to God

Believes stand for what you believe
Faint not in adversity
If you are cursed for Jesus name
Don’t give up! No don’t give up!

Well they tried to break me, but I wouldn’t give in
As they came to drag me out for execution
I heard a choir of angels, Yah murderers and thieves
Those 1,500 criminals had risen up for me
They raised their hands and sang the song my Father taught me
The sweetest sound I ever heard, Yah I heard freedom ring
