By Request, ‘Glorious Day’

We have this from one of my friends at Chessgames.com, “Ohio Chess Fan”–Glorious Day, by Casting Crowns.

We’ll post Easter hymns all week, or for as long as you like. We do try to fulfill all hymn requests, and just now, I’m happy to say, we’ve got a bundle of them.

By Request, ‘Jesus Christ Is Risen Today’

Requested by Phoebe, Jesus Christ is Risen Today, sung by the Kings College Choir, Cambridge.

This Easter hymn brings a tear to my eye. It seems to me that in it I can hear all my loved ones who have gone before–which is most of them–singing this hymn in a heavenly choir. What is that lump in my throat?

It’s Jesus, wanting us to know He is risen.

By Request, ‘Up From the Grave He Arose’

This is my favorite Easter hymn,so I was more than a little pleased when Erlene requested it.

Up From the Grave He Arose, sung by Voices of Eden–Happy Easter, everybody!

‘Christ the Lord is Risen Today’

Happy Easter, everybody! Jesus Christ is risen! Sin is conquered, death is undone. This is the beginning of a new Creation.

Christ the Lord is Risen Today, sung by the Yoder Family. Sing so God can hear us.

Back to Easter: ‘Up from the Grave He Arose’

We need for Christmas and Easter to work on us all year long, not just in their designated seasons.

So let’s revisit this classic Easter hymn, Up from the Grave He Arose, sung in glorious harmony by the Voice of Eden.

I wonder what would happen if I went outside and cheered.

Let’s Have those Easter Hymn Requests!

Has this poor fallen world ever needed Easter more than now? Go to the tomb. He is not here. The wrappings of the corpse are still there, but no Jesus. He is risen.

The world changed that day, forever.

Let’s celebrate with Easter hymns. The more you ask for, the more I’ll post.

Let’s Have Some Easter Hymn Requests!

Easter will be here before you know it. Whatever you think about the date assigned, Christians use it to proclaim that Jesus Christ’s resurrection from the dead is a historical fact–a thing that really happened. The thing that changed the world.

I would love to post Easter hymns every day for the next two weeks, but I wouldn’t much enjoy being the only one selecting them.

If you’re new to this blog, or simply if you haven’t yet requested a hymn for posting here–well, come on! The invitation’s open to all. Request your hymn by name, and if I can find it on youtube, I’ll post it here. Requests can be made in the former of a “reply” to any other post.

We do this for Christmas every year. So let’s do it for Easter, too!
