He Is Gone, He Has Risen

    Happy Easter to all of my Christian friends and followers and of course Happy Passover to my Jewish friends and followers as well. I wrote this yesterday in the spirit of  Easter, it was written as a spiritual song as you will, I’m sure, be able to tell. I can hear it being sung in a Baptist church especially, or any Christian church  for that matter, where joyous musical participation by the congregation is practiced and encouraged. Hallelujah!

     Have a Happy and safe Easter everyone, may God bless us all.

Jake.

HE HAS RISEN!

 

He Is Gone, He Has Risen

Well, they crowned Him with thorns

Lordy Lord, Lordy Lord,

yes, they crowned Him with thorns

Lordy Lord.

Oh, they crowned Him with thorns

so that we could be reborn

yes, they crowned Him with thorns

Lordy Lord.

***

Then they hung Him on the cross

Lordy Lord, Lordy Lord

yes, they hung Him on the cross

Lordy Lord.

Oh, they hung Him on the cross

so our souls would not be lost

yes, they hung Him on the cross

Lordy Lord.

***

Then they pierced Him in His side

Lordy Lord, Lordy Lord

yes, they pierced Him in His side

Lordy Lord.

Oh, the pierced Him in His side

but no hate would He abide,

yet, they pierced Him in His side

Lordy Lord.

***

Well, they laid Him in His tomb

Lordy Lord, Lordy Lord

yes, they laid Him in His tomb

Lordy Lord.

Oh, they laid Him in His tomb

and they cleansed out all His wounds

yes, they laid Him in His tomb

Lordy Lord.

***

Now, when they rolled that stone away

Lordy Lord, Lordy Lord

yes, when they rolled that stone away

Lordy Lord.

Oh, when they rolled that stone away

they heard the Angel say

He is gone, He has risen,

kneel and pray.”

***

Now, when they rolled that stone away

Lordy Lord, Lordy Lord

yes, when the rolled that stone away

Lordy, Lord.

Oh, when they rolled that stone away

they heard the Angel say

He is gone, He has risen,

kneel and pray.”

***

He is gone, He has risen,

kneel and pray.”

  1. Mary says:

    Very nice, Jack!

  2. So, now that you have written this, will you work on finding a musician to write the music? It seems worthy of that.

    I hope your Easter was a most blessed and joyous one, Jake.

  3. Thanks Audrey, but probably not, I have a few others that I like but I don’t know how to go about getting someone to actually put music to them.. But thanks for the vote of confidence. And yes thank you my Easter was excellent, as I expect was the same for you.

  4. It’s nice to hear that Audrey I’m happy for you and your family. Easter is a special family day isn’t it?
