Nesting at the Office

I haven’t had much time available for blogging lately. I think it’s because I’ve been doing the daddy version of pre-baby nesting. While Laurie’s been busying herself with tasks she (probably rightly, to my own shame) assumes won’t get done for the next couple months — such as meticulously scrubbing and polishing the bathtub until it sparkles — I’ve been trying to prepare things at work so that the School of Performing Arts will function smoothly without me. It’s a tremendous blessing that the church offers a week of paid “paternity leave”, but I want to be able to enjoy time with my family without worrying about things left undone! Thankfully, I feel that I’ve pretty successfully gotten things in order, and I have GREAT assistants who will make sure all is well in my absence.

But I don’t want to totally neglect the blog, so I’m going to attempt to just share a song a day until the baby gets here, and might squeeze in an occasional extra post here and there. For today, here’s a song we sang at church yesterday. It may be one of the Gettys’ lesser-known hymns, but it was perfect for Easter!

See What A Morning

See, what a morning, gloriously bright, 
With the dawning of hope in Jerusalem; 
Folded the grave-clothes, tomb filled with light, 
As the angels announce, “Christ is risen!” 
See God’s salvation plan, 
Wrought in love, borne in pain, paid in sacrifice, 
Fulfilled in Christ, the Man, 
For He lives: Christ is risen from the dead! 

See Mary weeping, “Where is He laid?” 
As in sorrow she turns from the empty tomb; 
Hears a voice speaking, calling her name; 
It’s the Master, the Lord raised to life again! 
The voice that spans the years, 
Speaking life, stirring hope, bringing peace to us, 
Will sound till He appears, 
For He lives: Christ is risen from the dead! 

One with the Father, Ancient of Days, 
Through the Spirit who clothes faith with certainty.
Honor and blessing, glory and praise 
To the King crowned with pow’r and authority! 
And we are raised with Him, 
Death is dead, love has won, Christ has conquered; **
And we shall reign with Him, 
For He lives: Christ is risen from the dead!

** Note: Use of the phrase “love has won” is NOT an endorsement of Rob Bell! 🙂
