Today is the day that we celebrate the resurrection of the death of my Savior and hopefully yours – Jesus Christ! If you have not read about this story in the Bible, please go here!
Sometimes, I just don’t feel my words suffice to convey my joy so I have decided to post three songs that capture what I’m feeling today. Whoever created YouTube enabled me to unearth the treasure of truly masterful music that I’m able to enjoy anytime I feel like it!
The first song on my Easter 2011 playlist is “Oh Happy Day” by The Edwin Hawkins Singers….
The second song is “He’s So Wonderful” by Sam Cooke and the Soul Stirrers…(This is before Cooke left the group to pursue a career in pop music.)
And the third and final song on my Easter 2011 playlist is a jazz instrumental “The Old Rugged Cross” by George Lewis, a jazz clarinetist…(On a side note, can’t you just hear this song playing in the background of an old “Tom and Jerry” cartoon?)
If you don’t have a church home, that’s okay…just find somebody’s church to be in today…
