Resurrection Day!

See, what a morning, gloriously bright, 
With the dawning of hope in Jerusalem; 
Folded the grave-clothes, 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!

    So one of the two of you (Sarah or Nina) need to write a choral arrangement of this piece and submit it to Soundforth! :)

  4. hey Jess--I think Nina better do it, I don't think my version would check!! I like me some drums on that last verse:) hehe! But seriously, I was just at Calvary (Simpsonville) for Easter Sunday and they did a really nice arrangement of this song. . .I'm not sure who wrote it though. . .

    HA! the drums could be an obligato... think timpani would be enough for you?! :) We just had a piece 2 releases ago with optional timpani! :) In all seriousness drums do add a lot to that piece! :)
