Just before the dawn of the twenty-first century, I wrote a song about this very day. No, not April 4, 2021. I’m talking about Resurrection Sunday. Also known as Easter. But, believe it or not, there are still people who don’t know what it means. And they don’t understand the way it all came about. So, my resurrection song is about that…
I think it’s a pretty good song. Even if that recording of it’s not the best. Sure, it’s no Peter Cottontail song. But I did have a guy tell me he thought it was just about the best contemporary Christian song he’d ever heard. And, I won’t feign false humility, shuffle my feet, and say, “Aw, you’re just sayin’ that.” But I WILL say it’s one of the best compliments I ever got.
Because my resurrection song comes from the heart.
And just in case you didn’t catch all the lyrics, here they are, and Happy Easter 2021!
And it came to pass one day on a mountain far away
That a soul was taken and a life forsaken
Because someone had to pay
For the heart of all mankind. There was no untarnished mind.
So one life was spent Who was innocent,
But He left His Word behind…
Forgive them for they know not what they do.
Redeem them and I give My Blood to You.
We can rise up No matter how much the guilt might weigh.
He said…”I am the Way!”
Now so many years have gone And we love with blinders on.
How we tolerate is a form of hate.
Where’s the Rock He stood upon?
For the Truth is absolute and it’s foolish to dispute.
It confounds the wise but it opens eyes,
And it saves the destitute
Now don’t turn to the left don’t turn to the right.
Just run straight to Him with all your might!
inst…chorus to end
