featuring the West Coast Mennonite Chamber Choir – recording available
The signature composition from the Cantata by the same name – ideal for the Lent and Easter calendar. Actually, the song resonates any time of year!
Jesus has arisen!
Joy and hope are given, those who call upon His name.
He shall be exalted through the endless ages,
name above all other names.
No more fear of dying
no more need to doubt.
Everyone shall answer
every knee shall bow.
Jesus has ascended,
not like He descended in a low and humble way.
He has been victorious, lifted up and glorious
now He holds His rightful place.
Jesus is returning
Joy and hope are burning in the true believer’s heart.
King of all creation, come with celebration.
May we never more depart.
