Easter 2011 | All Things New

He is risen!  The full congregation at Grace gathered with one voice this past Easter to celebrate the resurrection.  It was a beautiful morning of prayer, hearing God's Word, and fellowship with the Body.

There was a 16-piece ensemble of voices and instrumentalists leading us in song.  Here's a recording of "All Things New."  Reflecting on the closing verses of the Bible in Revelation 22:20, the text is by Horatius Bonar, written in 19th century Scotland, with a new melody and chorus lyrics by Clint Wells of Red Mountain Music.  I arranged the instrumental parts, initially inspired by Sufjan Stevens (and a little help from Howard Shore).

He is risen indeed!
