sunday song: easter sunday

Rise and Shine
Andrew Peterson

I remember how the shepherds lay in slumber 
And the angels came and broke them from their dreams 
And Mary raised her weary head 
And Joseph stood there grinning 
When the world awoke to the coming of a king 

But there were haystacks in his palace 
And a manger was his throne 
And the hillside never shined so bright 
As early Christmas morning 
You could almost hear the very heavens sing 

They sang, "Rise, rise and shine 
The sun is coming in 
And the morning light is shining in 
Your eyes, rise and shine 
The day is coming on 
And you know the night is gone so rise" 

I remember how the sunlight turned to thunder 
And the people ran for shelter from the rain 
And the curtain tore and the saints awoke 
And the whole earth seemed to tremble 
From the fury of God's anger 
Or was it the fury of his love? 

There were shadows on the tomb there in the garden 
And the mist was rising slowly through the trees 
And when Mary saw the silhouette on early Easter morning 
I remember how he smiled at her and said 

He said, "Rise, rise and shine 
The sun is coming in 
And the morning light is shining in 
Your eyes, rise and shine 
The day is coming on 
And you know the night is gone so rise
