CCM Classics for Easter – LAMB: Hallelujah (1981)

April 11, 2015

Lamb Live! (CD)

One of the best classic CCM groups was the Messianic Jewish group LAMB, the duo of Joel Chernoff and Rick (Levi) Coghill.  I had the pleasure of seeing them in concert once.  What joy and energy and celebration of the Messiah!

Perhaps the best of their albums is the 2 album set LAMB Live, (also available at iTunes) released in 1981.  One of the songs on that album is Hallelujah.  It is a favorite in my Classic CCM Easter playlist (especially after the long Lenten fast from singing Hallelujah).  Enjoy!

Lyrics:

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Let the heavens rejoice
All of ye mountain tops, all of ye hosts
Praise Him ye angels above

Now, let the sun and the moon rejoice
Praise Him all radiant stars
For it was He who created you
And established you forever and ever
And established you forever and ever

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
All of ye kings and ye people rejoice
Old men and young men, mothers and maidens
Lift us your hands and sing to the Lord
Sing Hallelu, Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Let the heavens rejoice
For the Lord has redeemed His people
Sing and shout hallelujah

So let the harps and the lyres begin
Timbels and stringed instruments
Cymbals and trumpets let go your blasts
Everything with breath come praise the Lord
Everything with breath come praise the Lord

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
All of ye kings and ye people rejoice
Old men and young men, mothers and maidens
Lift us your hands and sing to the Lord
Sing Hallelu, Hallelujah

Easter Quotes: Ann Voskamp – “The second Adam recreating all the universe”

April 11, 2015

From Ann Voskamp’s 2011 Easter blog entry  “…and out of the black”

The cornerstone of Christianity

is this rotting cell sparking,

a heart valve quivering in the pitch,

a beetle scratching in the black while

convex chest cavity shudders,

sunken death inflating with His hot breath,

atoms of the second Adam recreating

all the universe.

::

::


Can you feel it, within, in your darkest places?

He is alive! And in us!
