Hello!

Recently, I heard a TV preacher reminding viewers that the "Easter Message" of Jesus' willingness to endure the cross, followed by his wondrous resurrection, is a year round celebration for Christians.

If you are already a Christian, you know that is so true!

That train of thought put "Easter Song" by the late Keith Green in my mind...and I laughed at myself that I'd waited to post it here on this blog until "an Easter sometime in the future".

Penned by Annie Herring of 2nd Chapter of Acts, "Easter Song" celebrates the resurrection of Jesus, and Keith's beautiful and joyous version can be found on his first Christian album "For Him Who Has Ears To Hear" (1977).

Although the world lost Keith and two of his children when they died in a plane crash in 1982, his music and ministry (with wife Melody) live on and continue to Bless MANY people, and thankfully Melody continues to make both available on lastdaysministries.org.

Melody also maintains the Keith Green Facebook Page and her own Melody Green Facebook Page...so look for her there too.  (wikpedia - Keith Green)

If you've never heard Keith's music or this song...I pray you'll be Blessed by it.

I've posted the lyrics below the video.




After Jesus' arrest, trial, flogging, mocking, and crucifixion (Mark 15):

Jesus Has Risen
16 When the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices so that they might go to anoint Jesus’ body. 2 Very early on the first day of the week, just after sunrise, they were on their way to the tomb 3 and they asked each other, “Who will roll the stone away from the entrance of the tomb?”
4 But when they looked up, they saw that the stone, which was very large, had been rolled away. 5 As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man dressed in a white robe sitting on the right side, and they were alarmed.
6 “Don’t be alarmed,” he said. “You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid him. 7 But go, tell his disciples and Peter, ‘He is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him, just as he told you.’”

Easter Song - Lyrics

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 upon 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 upon 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.....
