Song Description

Mary Magdalene goes to the tomb and finds it empty, then sees Jesus who tells her to Go Out and Tell my People I Have Risen.

Story Behind the Song

The handwritten sheet music was given to me by a priest, and we perform it every year at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church in Immokalee, Florida. I have tried everything to find the author (the priest did not remember who gave it to him) and would love to give credit if I could just find them!

Lyrics

GO OUT AND TELL MY PEOPLE
Author: Unknown
Arrangement Copyright 2010 Carlene Thissen
KEY = G

VERSE 1:

If you know,   where they    have laid him
Tell me that I may go, and take him away
He spoke to me: "Mary," ...... "Mary"
I answered "Master,"     and he said:

CHORUS:

Go out and tell my people I have risen
Go out and tell my people that I live
For I have walked before you, into Jerusalem
And I will walk with you into my Father's home.

VERSE 2:  

I went out    in search of   His people
"I have seen the Lord   I know that He lives.."
They could not believe me    their hearts    were troubled
As I spoke to them the words He spoke to me

CHORUS:

Go out and tell my people I have risen
Go out and tell my people that I live
For I have walked before you, into Jerusalem
And I will walk with you into my Father's home.

VERSE 3:

That evening  He stood   among us
As he spoke to us    our hearts were at peace
Go out to the whole world   and tell  all creation
The message I have given you to day

CHORUS:

Go out and tell my people I have risen
Go out and tell my people that I live
For I have walked before you, into Jerusalem
And I will walk with you into my Father's home.

CODA:
And I will walk with you into my Father's home.
