Hail the Day

September 8, 2011
This Sunday night we will be teaching a new song called Hail the Day. It comes from the most recent album by Sovereign Grace entitled Risen, and is an adaptation of a hymn by Charles Wesley written in 1742 called Hail the Day That Sees Him Rise. We look forward to singing this song corporately as we study through the burial and resurrection of Jesus in our Sunday morning series through the Gospel of John.

Hail the Day

Hail the day that Christ arose

Through the skies to world’s unknown
Glorious there He ever reigns
Object of all Heaven’s praise

See Him lift His hands above
See the scars of His great love
He has conquered death and sin
Saving all who hope in Him


CHORUS
Hallelujah, hallelujah
The King of Love is on His throne
Hallelujah, hallelujah
His grace will lead us safely home


Though He dwells beyond the stars
His redeemed are on His heart
Even now He intercedes
Jesus cares for all our needs
