He is risen – Just as He said!

Keeping my Easter blogging tradition going. Posing my favorite Easter song.

Each Easter since I was in high school I have started my Easter day listening to Keith Green’s Easter Song. I can’t embed the audio here, but it’s worth a download from Amazon or iTunes.

As the song begins I remember hearing church bells ringing on Easter Sunday morning calling us all to come celebrate. I imagine Christ standing in front of the disciples shortly after his resurrection. The tears in their eyes as they realize that their friend with whom they had traveled, their leader who they had followed, and their Savior who they all worshiped was alive, just as He said. Their faith was strengthened. Their energy was renewed. They went on to preach the Gospel, build the church, and live lives dedicated to their risen Savior.

I hope this Easter that your faith is strengthened, and your energy is renewed.

Easter Song

Hear the bells ringing
They’re singing that you can be born again
Hear the bells ringing
They’re singing Christ is risen from the dead

The angel up on the tombstone
Said He has risen, just as He said
Quickly now, go tell his disciples
That Jesus Christ is no longer dead

Joy to the word, He has risen, hallelujah
He’s risen, hallelujah
He’s risen, hallelujah

Hear the bells ringing
They’re singing that you can be healed right now
Hear the bells ringing, they’re singing
Christ, He will reveal it now

The angels, they all surround us
And they are ministering Jesus’ power
Quickly now, reach out and receive it
For this could be your glorious hour

Joy to the world, He has risen, hallelujah
He’s risen, hallelujah
He’s risen, hallelujah, hallelujah

The angel up on the tombstone
Said He has risen, just as He said
Quickly now, go tell his disciples
That Jesus Christ is no longer dead

Joy to the world, He has risen, hallelujah
He’s risen, hallelujah
He’s risen, hallelujah
Hallelujah
