Song Description

It was Easter. I was preparing a message on how the resurrection of Jesus Christ had become in the theology of St. Paul (in 1 Corinthians 15) the key eschatological moment in history. I prepared a message based on the little versicle from the Book of Common Prayer, "Christ has died, Christ is risen, Christ will come again." The affirmation of faith that summarizes the essentials of the Christian faith is now moving around the earth as the missional cry of a liberated people. I wanted to create a song of energy and world music. The sound of children's voices layered over my voice and the voice of Cindy Gibbs and Fred Schendel repeating the simple affirmation of faith seeks to reflect the reality of the Gospel encircling the earth in our own generation.

Story Behind the Song

Words and music composed after studying to preach an Easter sermon.

Lyrics

Christ is Risen
Words and Music © 2011 Michael Milton

Christ has died
Christ is risen
Christ will come again
The Spirit is moving across the world
Bringing His children in
The Kingdom came to Asia Minor
The Kingdom to Europe too
The Kingdom came with power
A divine appointed hour
And all who saw
Were all who knew
Christ has died
Christ is risen
Christ will come again
The Spirit is moving across the world
Bringing His children in

The Kingdom crossed the ocean
The Gospel news to bring
To the shores of North America
To the peoples of inland Africa
And now in the East
They're beginning to sing
Christ has died
Christ is risen
Christ will come again
The Spirit is moving across the world
Bringing His children in
Now in the East
They're beginning to sing
Christ has died
Christ is risen
Christ will come again
The Spirit is moving across the world
Bringing His children in
