Christ the Lord is Risen Today, Alt. Lyrics

Someone requested a not substitutionary atonement version of this hymn so I wrote some lyrics.

Jesus Christ is Risen today, Alleluia; Our Amazing holy day, Alleluia

Who did once upon the cross, Alleluia, Teach and Love and Heal our loss, Alleluia

Hymns of praise then let us sing, Alleluia; Unto Christ, our Heavenly Kin, Alleluia

Who washed and served us til the end, Alleluia; Teacher, Savior and our Friend, Alleluia

But no one does God disclude Alleluia; for Christ’s love was the prelude, Alleluia

Can you feel God’s love break through? Alleluia; It includes both me and you, Alleluia

Sing we to our God above, Alleluia, Praise eternal as God’s love Alleluia

Praise our God, ye heavenly host, Alleluia; Father, Son and Holy Ghost, Alleluia

It Came Upon a Midnight Clear

Ready for a fun Supposition?

Here’s something to consider–it’s for fun you do not need to agree with me, but I like it and will continue to believe it.

It Came Upon A Midnight Clear is an Advent Song.

1. It’s about angels

2. It’s about their endless song

3. This entire verse is advent And ye, beneath life’s crushing load, Whose forms are bending low, Who toll along the climbing way With painful steps and slowLook now! for glad and golden hour Come swiftly on the wing;O rest beside the weary road, and hear the angels sing.(Waiting, pentitance, getting through ALL advent themes)

4. Verse 4 is all about prophecy….as is the whole thing

Anyway we sing Christmas song early anyway but we almost always sing it the 2nd week, for peace as an advent prophecy song, because I maintain its been misfiled
