So here I go again. Here's a song on the resurrection. You have to forgive the vocals and the arrangement. After all I'm just an amateur :). I can't read notes, I play by ear, and just adjust the equalizer on your media player if you can't understand what I'm singing. Better yet, read the lyrics while the song is being sung! But I hope this song will be a blessing to you this Easter. Click here for the melody and vocals. Below are the lyrics.
The Powers of Darkness thought they'd won the victory
When they saw the Son of God defeated, hanging on a tree
None of them had any inkling that the Lord was actually winning
It was by the way of dying that there came the power of living
He descended into hell. Satan's victory was complete.
What the devil did not know was his victory was short-lived
Then came Sunday the first Easter
Hell was shaken by God's power
"Son of glory, hear thy Father
Rise again and live forever!"
For thou shalt rise again, thou shalt rise again
For thy Father hath decreed to perform this mighty deed
To raise thee back to life, to raise thee back to life
Thou shalt rise!
There was panic all around, pandemonium broken loose
All of hell in deep confusion, none can hinder his release
God hath spoken, hath commanded
Satan and his hosts confounded:
"We must keep him here forever!"
But the Son of God cried "Never!"
For I will rise again, I will rise again
For my Father hath decreed to perform this mighty deed
To raise me back to life, to raise me back to life
I shall rise, I shall rise!
Hallelujah, the Lord is risen!
