Resurrection Band, also known as Rez Band or REZ, is one of the most well-known and respected Christian rock bands in the history of Contemporary Christian music. They were based out of the Jesus People USA Christian community in Chicago, Illinois, and most of its members continue to be part of that community to this day.
Led by the husband-and-wife team of Glenn and Wendi Kaiser, the band has been the preeminent example of how to evangelize using Christian rock, but the quality musicianship of Resurrection Band has also been a driving force in the development of the Christian music industry at large. Glenn Kaiser also has an established solo career as a blues musician and is also a well-known speaker on various spiritual issues to youth and adults.

LYRICS TO: Surprised
I done my time
I took my ride
Stritted my stuff, did it my way
Hid myself from the light of day
Pushed, shoved, tripped an' fell
But dead men got no tales to tell
Everything I've come to know
Points me to my need for you
I've known the pain
I felt the shame
Voices talkin' soft an' loud
Too far down to be so proud
Some said somethin' 'bout ears to hear
Faith in truth becomin' clear
I been surprised
Opened my eyes
Sky came down in tears of rain
Sun came up a whole new way
God knows what an' when an' why
Think I wasn't born to die
Everything I've come to know
Points me to the fact of You
I don't know all that i need
But I think I finally see
Been so surprised
Here I'm alive
So, so surprised
I am alive

I'm not a Christian at all, but this is one of the best albums I have ever heard. I wish I could understand more deeply what they are expressing.

I remember that tour are you talking about Lament?

Damn I remember this Album. I totally forgot Rez. Along with a lot of other things...

I saw Rez with Whitecross (minus Rex Carroll). It was a very different show. Glenn just came out and said "we are going to do something a little different.." and they just played the whole album without really stopping. Glenn came out and preached a sermon "the thing that is wrong with many of us is we are not honest with ourselves, let alone our kids.." for 42 minutes. You could have heard a pin drop while he was speaking.....
I'd love to see more uploaded from the Innocent Blood Album, more specifically the song "Altar Of Pain" one of my faves. 
more than a great "christian" band, a great band and a pioneer in music history, period! i saw them twice, and will always have a great deal of respect for them!
I had the privilege to see the band perform this album in its entirety at the Cornerstone Festival in the nineties. It was one of the best concerts I'd ever seen, and I've seen quite a few. The album remains one of my favorites.
Fred Riedel
in the eighties i saw them twice keep it up
