He is risen

Our church choir is singing several songs today and the words to this song have been swirling around in my head all week. 

See, what a morning, gloriously bright with the dawning of hope in Jerusalem.
Folded, the graveclothes; tomb filled with light, as the angels announce, "Christ is risen!"

See God's salvation plan wrought in love,borne in pain, paid in sacrifice.
Fulfilled in Christ the Man, for He lives:  Christ is risen from the dead!

See Mary weeping, "Where is He laid?" as in sorrow she turns from the empty tomb,
hears a voice speaking, calling her name:  it's the Master, the Lord, raised to life again!

The voice that spans the years speaking life, stirring hope, bringing peace to us
will sound till He appears, for He lives:  Christ is risen from the dead!

One with the Father, Ancient of Days, through the Spirit who clothes faith with certainty.
Honor and blessing, glory and praise to the King, crowned with pow'r and authority.

And we are raised with Him:  Death is dead, Love has won, Christ has conquered!
And we shall reign with Him, for He lives:  Christ is risen from the dead!

For He lives:  Christ is risen from the dead!

(Resurrection Hymn by Keith Getty and Stuart Townend)

  1. Happy Easter! We heard a song at Mom's church this morning that was new to me. I wanted to post the lyrics but I can't find them. Bah humbug.


I'd love to know what you're thinking. Please feel free to leave ideas and comments.
