It’s no secret that I really like the modern hymns written by Stuart Townend and Keith and Kristyn Getty. Yesterday in church we sang The Resurrection Hymn– it’s become as essential for my Easter as “Christ The Lord is Risen Today” and “Low In the Grave He Lay“. The first Getty hymn I heard was “The Power of the Cross” at Easter five years ago at a church in Minneapolis. I was so touched by this hymn that when I got home, I set out to find everything else written by the Gettys.
While listening to this piece again morning, Jeff remarked that it ties together the entire Easter story and would be a great conclusion to this year’s week of Easter music. So here it is, sung by the Bob Jones University Singers, conducted by Craig Courtney (a great composer in his own right).
