Hope Rises


One of my all time favorite Easter Songs is

“Then Came the Morning”.

Beautiful-white-flower2

The lyrics are so compelling as they tell of the greatest

event in the history of mankind…

the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.

No other “god” has ever come alive again…never…only one…

Jesus Christ.

With His resurrection, He brought to the world the hope of

a life apart from sin and shame, of being made into His likeness,

and finally, of the joy of eternity in His presence.

Here are the lyrics to this wonderful song written by Bill Gaither. 
I couldn’t find a video that was short enough to post!

They all walked away, with nothing to say,
They'd just lost their dearest friend.
All that He said, now He was dead,
So this was the way it would end.


The dreams they had dreamed were not what they'd seemed,
Now that He was dead and gone.
The garden, the jail, the hammer, the nail,
How could a night be so long.


Then came the morning, night turned into day;
The stone was rolled away, hope rose with the dawn.
Then came the morning, shadows vanished before the sun,
Death had lost and life had won, for morning had come.


The angel, the star, the kings from afar,
The wedding, the water, the wine.
Now it was done, they'd taken her son,
Wasted before his time.


She knew it was true, she'd watched him die too,
She'd heard them call Him just a man,
But deep in her heart, she knew from the start,
Somehow her Son would live again.


Then came the morning, night turned into day;
The stone was rolled away, hope rose with the dawn.
Then came the morning, shadows vanished before the sun,
Death had lost and life had won, for morning had come.
Then came the morning, shadows vanished before the sun,
Death had lost and life had won, for morning had come.
Morning had come.


May this Easter be particularly special and meaningful
to you as you focus on the power of the resurrected Christ,
and His love for the world,

AND YOU!!

Happy Easter,
With Love,

Becky
