Forever (We Sing Hallelujah)

Verse 1

The moon and stars they wept
The morning sun was dead
The Savior of the world was fallen
His body on the cross
His blood poured out for us
The weight of every curse upon Him
 

Verse 2

One final breath He gave
As heaven looked away
The Son of God was laid in darkness
A battle in the grave
The war on death was waged
The power of hell forever broken

Pre-Chorus

The ground began to shake
The stone was rolled away
His (perfect) (reckless) love could not be overcome
Now death where is your sting
Our resurrected King
has rendered you defeated

Chorus

Forever He is glorified
Forever He is lifted high
Forever He is risen
He is alive and He is alive

 

Bridge

We sing hallelujah we sing hallelujah
We sing hallelujah the Lamb has overcome

This Is Amazing Grace

Verse 1

Who breaks the power of sin and darkness
Whose love is mighty and so much stronger
The King of Glory the King above all kings

Verse 2

Who shakes the whole earth
with holy thunder
Who leaves us breathless
in awe and wonder
The King of Glory
the King above all kings

Chorus

This is amazing grace
This is unfailing love
That You would take my place
That You would bear my cross
You laid down Your life
That I would be set free
Oh Jesus I sing for
all that You've done for me

Verse 3

Who brings our chaos
back into order
Who makes the orphan
a son and daughter
The King of Glory the King of Glory

Verse 4

Who rules the nations
with truth and justice
Shines like the sun in
all of its brilliance
The King of Glory the King above all kings

Bridge

Worthy is the Lamb who was slain
Worthy is the King who conquered the grave
Worthy is the Lamb who was slain
Worthy is the King who conquered the grave
Worthy is the Lamb who was slain
Worthy is the King who conquered the grave
Worthy is the Lamb who was slain

Session 1

Some Details... and the Song List!

Some Details:

  • The Easter Praise Choir will accompany the Worship Team at all three services on Easter Sunday, April 16, at 8am, 10am, 12noon.
     
  • The time commitment on Easter will be from 7:00am-12:30pm (though there will be the possibility of arranging missing a service if needed).
     
  • Snacks/breakfast foods/refreshments will be provided throughout the morning for the choir, worship team, and others who will be serving throughout the morning
     
  • Music-reading skills are not required
     
  • There will be only one or two rehearsals (details soon)
     
  • You'll (in the next few days) be given access to recordings of the songs and your particular parts (for practicing). The way we are going to be practicing is largely individual. You can listen to and be taught the different parts to the different songs with the recordings. 
     
  • The choral parts and words will be quite straightforward and simple. We're asking that everyone work to memorize parts/words.  No folders/music will be on stage.  Though we'll have lyrics projected for you on a confidence monitor, it might be difficult to read and knowing the songs internally will serve best.
     
  • If you have any questions don't hesitate to email me. 

The Easter Sunday Song List:

Forever
Overcome
This is Amazing Grace

Because He Lives
Risen
Let It Be Known


Here are two ways to listen:

It's good to simply begin learning the general song. These aren't necessarily the keys we'll be using, and your choir parts won't including singing the whole song (only parts), it's still helpful to simply begin listening to the songs to bring familiarity.  They also can obviously serve as a resource in your personal worship this week.  

  1. Here is a Spotify playlist (thanks, Vanassa!) of the songs if you would like to listen on Spotify.  

    Also, here is a document with all the lyrics.

     
  2. Below are videos with lyrics and audio of each song.

 

Individual parts and details coming in the next days.  

If you have problems accessing the videos or need the media in another format, let me know.
