Happy Resurrection Day! "See, What a Morning!"

Loved it last year; loving it again this year.

Wonderful, stirring celebration of the Resurrection.

Lyrics (guitar chords):
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!

(Written by Keith Getty and Stuart Townend)

"If we have been united to him in a death like his, we will be united to him in a resurrection like his. We know that our old self was crucified with him in order that the body of sin might be brought to nothing, so that we would no longer be enslaved to sin. For one who has died has been set free from sin. Now if we have died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him. We know that Christ being raised from the dead will never die again; death no longer has dominion over him. For the death he died he died to sin, once for all, but the life he lives he lives to God."

A man of few words... but several punctuation-marks.

You would have enjoyed the exuberance of our drummer during this song yesterday. He said, "It's not often you get to play 12/8 prog-rock in church!"

It’s been my good pleasure to have actually met the Getty’s about a year and a half ago and I’ve heard them live a couple of times. Some have accused me of being a groupie, but actually it’s their body of work and ministry that leads me to believe that we will be singing their hymns until He returns.

To that end I love to give away their CD’s to people and have managed to get my church to include several of their hymns in to the mix. We did The Power of The Cross and Behold the Lamb this past Eas … I mean … Resurrection Day service.

Thanks for posting this.
