A week late for Easter Sunday... but He is still risen, even now.
This is probably one of the most well-known Easter songs -- ever. On Good Friday I featured Silverwind -- this group was their predecessor. The prototype, if you will, the original.
This is the song that launched the career of an orphaned group of siblings with no musical training to speak of but an ear for harmony. This piece remains a classic among Christian music historians. It's delightfully simple in its message and the piano is so light and bouncy that it induces almost immediate dancing of some kind -- whether the subtle, head-nodding type or a more Pentecostal full-body style.

The angel up on the tombstone said 'He is risen, just as He said
'Go tell His disciples that Jesus Christ is no longer dead'
Joy to the world -- He is risen
