The Day Before Easter
God is Always Changing

Arise!

The clouds had not yet lifted

Jesus tombThe tomb was sealed and dark.

The cruel cross had crucified

The hope of every heart.

The Son of God,

The Lord of life,

By death had been destroyed.

Then in the silence of the tomb

He heard His Father's voice.

"Arise. Arise, first Star of the morning skies,

Come forth, my anointed One

Into eternal life.

Arise. Arise.

Cast away death's dark disguise.

My glorious Son,

Victorious One,

In majesty, arise!

The earth began to tremble.

The ground began to quake.

The mighty stone that sealed the tomb

Of death began to shake.

Then suddenly, the darkness

Was shattered by His light

As Jesus Christ, the Son of God

Burst through the doors alive.

Arise. Arise, first Star of the morning skies.

Come forth, my anointed One

Into eternal life.

Arise. Arise.

Cast away death's dark disguise

My glorious Son,

Victorious One

In majesty, arise!


Arise. Arise, first Star of the morning skies.

Come forth, my anointed One

Into eternal life.

Arise. Arise.

Cast away death's dark disguise.

My glorious Son,

Victorious Son

In majesty, arise!

Arise!

Arise!
