bridging past and present

I'm not that big a fan of "worship" music but Stuart Townend really rocks! Was just listening to a Stuart Townend worship album entitled "The Mandate", which I had borrowed from Yoke Ling on Sunday. Found myself listening to a lot of old favourites such as Give Thanks, In Christ Alone, and All My Days (Beautiful Saviour) (ok ok...not so "old" after all).

I've also got a new tune stuck in my head now, which I really hope we can sing in church sometime soon.

See, what a morning, gloriously bright,
With the dawning of hope in Jerusalem;
Folded the grave-clothes, tomb filled with light,
As the angels announce Christ is risen!
See God's salvation plan,
Wrought in love, borne in pain, paid in sacrifice
Fulfilled in Christ the Man,
For He lives, Christ is risen from the dead!

See Mary weeping, "Where is He laid?"
As in sorrow she turns from the empty tomb;
Hears a voice speaking, calling her name;
It's the Master, the Lord raised to life again!
The voice that spans the years,
Speaking life, stirring hope, bringing peace to us,
Will sound till He appears,
For He lives, Christ is risen from the dead!

One with the Father, Ancient of Days,
Through the Spirit who clothes faith with certainty,
Honour and blessing, glory and praise
To the King crowned with power and authority!
And we are raised with Him,
Death is dead, love has won, Christ has conquered;
And we shall reign with Him,
For He lives, Christ is risen from the dead!
