The Winter is O'er

For those of you who may not know me I've recently fallen in love with liturgy and, more specifically, the church calendar year with all its ebbs and flows, ups and downs, feasts and fasts.

I recently wrote a song celebrating Eastertide & the arrival of Spring because, lets be honest, this winter was brutal and it was amazing to see the changing of the seasons and think about resurrection in all of its wonder.

The story behind its inception & the writing process is over here at the Guild Creatives blog.  Lyrics are below

The winter is o'er
Chase away old thoughts of darkness and fear
The Saviour who rose
Calls us to resurrect hope and good cheer

      Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
      Hallelujah! The winter is o'er

New hope has arrived
Smelling of springtime as flowers appear
The promise of life
Blooms from the barren and frost bitten earth
The Saviour who died
Reverses the curse of the first Adam's tears

      Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
      Hallelujah! New hope has arrived

O the perfect One was slain
This is where sin's hand was stayed
Death could not hold him down
Tore up the broken ground
Jesus our Lord overpower'd the grave

      Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
      Hallelujah! Jesus is risen

Springtime is here
The rolled away stone, the victorious Son
The Saviour appears
Eastertide shouts for the battle is won
