Happy Easter – He is risen, indeed!

The desert calm and cold
In the quiet of the evening
These things we have been told
By the angels o’er us, singing

They say that the One has come
And that is what has brought us here
To the entry of this stable
Looking at the One they say

Will carry our every burden
Strip the load off of our backs
Take the death out of our dying
And give us everything we lack
The One they say
Will deliver us from all that holds us down
But can a baby carry a burden
When He has yet to walk around?

The hilltop dark and stormy
In the shadows of the afternoon
He says that it is finished
And the earth will tremble soon

They say that He is the One to come
To take away the death of sin
He said He came to give us life
And said that His must end

To carry our every burden
Strip the load off of our backs
Take the death out of our dying
And give us everything we lack
The world’s deliverance
Was broken, bruised and bled
But can one man carry every burden
When He lies before us, dead?

The morning dawning bright
Above the tears of men
His words now stand forgotten
“I will rise again”

A woman stands before the tomb
Her heart begins to rend
But stopped by angel voices,
She begins to understand

To carry our every burden
Strip the load off of our backs
Take the death out of our dying
And give us everything we lack
To be the world’s deliverance
He had to follow His Father’s plan-
He was broken, bruised and bled
For victory – fully God and fully man.

He will carry our every burden
Strip the load off of our backs
Take the death out of our dying
And give us everything we lack
He is the world’s deliverance
For the tomb is empty where He lay
Only Christ can carry our burden-
He is the only Way.
