Belated Happy Easter, folks! Hope that we all had a renewed life and faith in Christ as we commemorated His resurrection. The festival may be over but knowing that Jesus has risen in our lives is something worth rejoicing every day. Christ’s birth in our heart is an event that’s equally significant as His birth in this world. And if we joyfully celebrate His natal day, the more that we must honor His birth within us.
To help us rejoice Christ’s rebirth every day, here’s a song that we can include in our daily devotion. The song is called “There Rose a Lamb” composed by Kyla Rowland and performed by the Southern gospel quartet Gold City.
Immersing on the Lyrics
Based on its lyrical content, the song is basically talking about the restoration of Jesus. This is specifically observed from the first two verses.
It was the third day since he died
And it was said he would arise
Then from the grave, his plan came forth
Oh, I have reason to rejoice
He chose the place, he chose the hour
That he would rise by his own power
A sacrifice three days ago
And now, praise God, the Lamb arose
The chorus is a short, general description of who the Lamb is as well as His great deeds. It tells some historical facts about the main character (Jesus) who extended the series of circumstances leading to the big event (His resurrection).
There rose a Lamb in Jerusalem
He was the son of the great I am
He proved to be my victory
There rose a Lamb in Jerusalem
In the last stanza, the narration becomes more personal. It goes deeper by incorporating the implication of the Lamb that has arisen. Everyone who has Jesus living in their hearts has every reason to rejoice. Christ arose, but this meant nothing until He arose in our heart.
I wasn’t there when Jesus died
I wasn’t there to see him rise
But I was there when he saved my soul
For within my heart, his love arose
Indeed, the song not only recounts a historical event written in the Bible. More importantly, it serves as exultation for the return of a Savior, the only hope of humanity.
