Lyrics

Easter Sunrise <br />
by Marsha Stevens copyright 1999 BALM Publishing/ASCAP <br />
It is my favorite service. No one is there just to show up for church. Everyone has made some sacrifice, if only of a few hours of sleep, to stand for a moment with Christ before the New Day Dawned. <br />
<br />
God I love this moment, when believer’s choose to rise, <br />
And turn our yearning hearts to the eastern skies. <br />
Together we are waiting for the Easter morning sun, <br />
To reassure our hearts of all You’ve done. <br />
CHORUS <br />
• God our hearts rise with You, longing to be sure, <br />
• See the grave is empty, and our future is secure. <br />
• Day has not yet broken, but Your promises are true. <br />
• So we wait in this silence just to worship You. <br />
My favorite celebration of the church’s Holy year, <br />
Because each person present waits, expectant, here. <br />
And like those first believers we hear an angel’s voice, <br />
And while the world is sleeping we rejoice. <br />
(CHORUS) <br />
Morning sun brings on the day <br />
And in our hearts the stone is rolled away <br />
• God our hearts rise with You, longing to be sure, <br />
• See the grave is empty and our future is secure. <br />
• Day has finally broken and Your promises were true, <br />
So as we leave this silence, our lives worship You. <br />
