I don’t know about you, but I’m still in my Easter music mode. I kind of feel this way about Christmas music too, that it’s a shame the seasons are so short because there are so many good songs associated with them that only get played during those few, short weeks. This song I’m sharing with you today loosely fits into this Easter song category because the bridge is specifically telling the Easter story. The verses are actually a dusted off version of an old hymn by Christopher Wordsworth written in 1862 that hadn’t seen the light of day in a while. In classic hymn style it tells the full story of redemption from the coming of Jesus through the believers joining him in heaven. And right in the middle, Jenny & Tyler add in the punchline of the Easter story:
They raced to the tomb, angels stood byMary was weeping for the empty insideFor the sins of the world, for the sake of His brideHe went to His death, and behold, He’s alive!He’s alive! O He’s alive!
