Easter video: “Dance Your Shoes Off”

I found this via Ann Voskamp’s 2011 blog archives.  What fun!

Here are a few of the lyrics.  Great words.  May it be true of us today!

This is a celebration…We’re people of His Kingdom.  His resurrection is our freedom, for every heart, every tongue and every tribe. …

We will rise up. He’s alive, He’s alive inside us, and we will rise up.  We claim the victory He won on Calvary. Celebrate the King of Glory, so rise up, people of the Lord rise up. … We carry the love that has redeemed us. … We will dance for the One who shines brighter than the sun.

May our Easter faith be marked by this kind of contagious and visible JOY!

Second Baptist Church Houston | More than 2,000 people from Second Baptist Church, Houston, Texas, gathered at Discovery Green in the heart of Houston to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus. The purpose of Dance Your Shoes Off! was to proclaim the resurrection of Jesus Christ in a powerful and celebratory way. Most importantly, each participant left a new pair of shoes on the field for those in need. These shoes will be given to local mission agencies, including Star of Hope, individuals all across the world through our mission partners and mission trips.

NOTE: This event was inspired by our fellow believers in Budapest: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i5dSIL….

CREDITS: The song was commissioned by Second Baptist Church for this event. It is called “Rise Up” sung by Lauren James Camey and produced by Joshua Moore. Voice over by Lyle Countryman. Song is available on iTunes: http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/rise…
