Easter: Praise the Risen Lord

The story of the empty cross and the empty tomb is the source of hope and joy for believers around the world. The death of Jesus as our substitute to pay for our sin-debt and the gift of his righteousness given to us constitute the meaning of the empty cross and the empty tomb.

He was delivered over to death for our sins and was raised to life for our justification. Romans 5:25 (NIV)

This exciting news is told in GoodSeed’s upcoming musical, No Ordinary Story. One particular song called, Praise the Risen Lord, is a triumphant choral piece that climaxes the Easter story.

Last year, at our staff Bible camp, a small choir of staff and friends sang the music while three staff performed the drama. On this Easter, we’d like to share that joy and excitement by letting you listen to a live recording from that preview performance.
