Video: Because He is Risen, I too, Will Rise!

There's a peace I've come to know...  because Jesus Christ is Risen, I too, will Rise! This just released video on Alex Boye's YouTube channel, "I Will Rise" caught my attention when a friend posted it on Facebook. So I watched, and although I wasn't planning on posting this weekend, I couldn't stop myself from sharing this magnificent song of praise, in commemoration of the Glorious Resurrection of Jesus Christ!

Not only is the music inspiring, but the lyrics are just as compelling, if not more so. It's a song that I'm happy to say I can't get out of my mind, and have already memorized the words. I love "I Will Rise" and in fact, I may just have a new favorite hymn.


Alex Boye shared his personal experience of how this collaboration came about:

"On the morning of Friday 2nd of March, i was invited to perform for a group of students at the Institute of Religion at Utah Valley University in Orem Utah. It will be a day that will not easy be forgotten. Before i got up to give my presentation, a choir filed neatly into position behind me and began to sing. From the first note, all my senses was grabbed hold upon by a heavenly sound that left me breathless. I had to do a 360 turn to see who it was singing. I didn't take my eyes off them until they had finished. By the end, i was overcome with tears. It's lucky i don't wear mascara

During the musical presentation, i felt a strong witness of the spirit, telling me i needed to take this choir to the studio and record the song they sang with them."

"I Will Rise"

There's a peace I've come to know
Though my heart and flesh may fail
There's an anchor for my soul
I can say "It is well"

Jesus has overcome
And the grave is overwhelmed
The victory is won
He is risen from the dead

And I will rise when He calls my name
No more sorrow, no more pain
I will rise on eagles' wings
Before my God fall on my knees
And rise
I will rise

There's a day that's drawing near
When this darkness breaks to light
And the shadows disappear
And my faith shall be my eyes

Jesus has overcome
And the grave is overwhelmed
The victory is won
He is risen from the dead

And I will rise when He calls my name
No more sorrow, no more pain
I will rise on eagles' wings
Before my God fall on my knees
And rise
I will rise

And I hear the voice of many angels sing,
"Worthy is the Lamb"
And I hear the cry of every longing heart,
"Worthy is the Lamb"

And I will rise when He calls my name
No more sorrow, no more pain
I will rise on eagles' wings
Before my God fall on my knees
And rise
I will rise


Just a reminder to take a few minutes, this Easter weekend, to share your personal testimony of Jesus Christ and what His Atonement and Resurrection mean to you. http://easter.imamormon.org/

I am so grateful for Jesus Christ, and I love Him. He is my personal Savior and Redeemer. His glorious Resurrection ensures that all of mankind will also live again -- and that by keeping His commandments we can claim Eternal Life. Living the gospel has brought tremendous blessings to me personally, and to my entire family. It is my testimony that Jesus Christ lives -- and that through Him families can be together forever!

I will rise when He calls MY name...

Easter Bible Videos Celebrate Resurrection of Jesus Christ

As a gift to the world, from the First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, (Mormon) another beautiful collection of New Testament Bible videos have been released -- just in time for Easter. Beginning with the Savior’s triumphant entry into the holy city of Jerusalem, to the cross on Calvary, each video documents the poignant scriptural account, leading up to, and finally, the glorious Resurrection -- of which all Christians rejoice!


"Members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are enthusiastically joining an Internet initiative to express their belief in Jesus Christ and what He means to them. Easter is the time Christians celebrate the Resurrection of the Son of God. Latter-day Saints believe Christ suffered for our sins in the Garden of Gethsemane, died on the cross for all people on the earth and then rose from the tomb three days later, providing everyone with the opportunity to be resurrected."



"Members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints around the world are invited to participate in the launch of a major Internet campaign to testify of Jesus Christ and share their beliefs about the Savior during the Easter weekend."
