Description

This splendid medley by Craig Curry begins with a triumphant verse for choir and congregation of “Christ the Lord Is Risen Today.” Reverently recalling our Lord’s passion and suffering with a verse of “Were You There?,” it gradually builds to a glorious finale on “Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee.” Skillful scoring, a solo trumpet part for smaller choirs (opt. tpt. part included), and a brilliant orchestration for larger choirs (available separately) make this the perfect choice for Easter.

An SAB voicing is available here.

The instrumental score/parts are available here.

An accompaniment CD is available here.

Christ the Lord is risen today, Alleluia!
Earth and heaven in chorus say, Alleluia!
Raise your joys and triumphs high, Alleluia!
Sing, ye heavens, and earth reply, Alleluia!

Were you there when they crucified my Lord?
Were you there when they crucified my Lord?
O sometimes it causes me to tremble, tremble, tremble
Were you there when they crucified my Lord?

Were you there when He rose up from grave!
Were you there when He rose up from grave!
O sometimes I feel like shouting glory
I feel like shouting "Glory!" I feel like shouting "Glory!"
I feel like shouting "Glory!" I feel like shouting "Glory!"
I shout "Glory," I shout "Glory to God!"

Joyful, joyful, we adore Thee,
God of glory, Lord of love;
Hearts unfold like flow’rs before Thee,
Op’ning to the sun above.
Melt the clouds of sin and sadness;
Drive the dark of doubt away;
Giver of immortal gladness,
On this Resurrection Day!

Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Amen!
