Down At The Cross (Glory To His Name)

Continuing to worship Christ the Lord this week through sharing Easter hymns that we hear so seldom. I love these, even more than I do Christmas carols! Hope you enjoy this one I found on YouTube:

I was just laughing at "Manny's Gotcha Day" which came up as another post I might like to read. We have Gotcha Day in our family to celebrate the day two of our sons came to the States from an orphanage in Colombia years and years and years ago. It is quite a festive occasion, too. I can't imagine what our lives would have been like without them.

True, Easter songs are not nearly as prevalent as Christmas songs. Too bad. I think this has more to do with our modern culture, eh? Christmas is all about an innocent, undemanding little baby and lots of loot. Easter is about self-sacrifice and a powerful God. Which will most sinners gravitate to? :(

If you can find a song done by Twila Paris, called "Arise, My Soul, Arise," you might like it! It's not an Easter song, but it's a wonderful song. Charles Wesley wrote it. Like many Wesley songs, the music is rather dull but the words are spectacular. Twila Paris' version is the best I've ever heard.

Manny was very happy to hear to read about his Gotcha Day! MEOW! That is really fantastic that you got two sons from an orphanage in Columbia. I wonder what they thought of Alaska when they first arrived (You are in Alaska, aren't you?).

I do like that song. I am familiar with it and have sung it at church. John Wesley has written many good hymns.
