The Resurrection Story – Doris Jacobs Covington

 

The Resurrection Story

by: Doris Jacobs Covington

From the Heavens to the Earth
From Bethlehem to Calvary
From the shining star of Christmas
To the rugged, bloodstained tree

From the bosom of The Father
To the Virgin Mary’s womb
From the Manger to the Cross
From the Throne Room to the Tomb

From the Fishermen so humble
To the Pharisees so proud
From Angels who cried “holy”
To the “crucify him” crowd

From the Three Wise Men to Pilate
From the Temple to the Trial
From the cup of Sweet Communion
To the vinegar so vile

From the Crown fit for Creator
To the wicked Crown of Thorns
From hosannas and high praises
To the spitting, stripes, and scorn

From the six days of Creation
To the three days spent with Death
From the grave’s lifeless performance
To the surge of Spirit breath

From the Stone to Rock of Ages
From Defeat to Victory
From the Doubters to Believers
From the Captives to the Free

From the Earth back to the Heavens
From the Grave back to the Glory
From the Tomb back to the Throne Room
This is the Resurrection Story.

We Gather Together – Song Lyrics

We Gather Together Lyrics

Thanksgiving hymn


We Gather Together

~ author unknown

We gather together to ask the Lord’s blessing;
He chastens and hastens His will to make known;
The wicked oppressing now cease from distressing,
Sing praises to His name: He forgets not his own.




Beside us to guide us, our God with us joining,
Ordaining, maintaining His kingdom divine
So from the beginning the fight we were winning;
Thou, Lord, wast at our side, All glory be thine!




We all do extol thee, thou leader triumphant,
And pray that thou still our defender wilt be.
Let thy congregation escape tribulation;
Thy name be ever praised! O Lord, make us free!
