Sunday Afternoon Music Video: This Joyful Eastertide

More of a Sunday night music video tonight!

My daughter Ladybug and I sang this at two services this morning, with a welcome choir potluck and Easter egg hunt in between. Her eyes got wide when I whispered an explanation of tone painting and how the refrain melody keeps rising joyfully on "arisen, arisen, arisen." You're never too young for music theory!

Many blessings in our risen Christ today, and for the great Fifty Days to come!

  1. Beautiful anthem - seems to me this tune also has been used in Christmas carols - sounds so familiar.

    A joyous Easter tune!!!
