I sang this hymn with pastors, spouses, and others gathered at the Montana Synod Pastoral Conference at Chico Hot Springs! It is a great Easter hymn written by one of the most creative persons I've ever heard speak! And it is one of my favorite hymn tunes!
Alleluia! Jesus Is Risen! (Tune: "Earth and All Stars")
Text: Herbert F.Brokering, b. 1926. Text CW. 1995 Augsburg Fortress.
Verse 1: Alleluia! Jesus is risen! Trumpets resounding in glorious light!
Splendor, the Lamb, heaven forever! Oh, what a miracle God has in sight!
Refrain: Jesus is risen and we shall arise, Give God the glory! Alleluia!
Verse 2: Walking the way, Christ in the center telling the story to open our eyes;
breaking our bread, giving us glory: Jesus our blessing, our constant surprise.
Verse 3:City of God, Easter forever, golden Jerusalem, Jesus the Lamb,
river of life, saints and archangels, sing with creation to God the I AM!
May these words accompany you wherever you serve!
God's Blessings and Peace,
