Musings From A Musical Mind

Be Ye Glad

Yesterday, on Easter Sunday – we attended a beautiful service with much music, scripture and reflection.  As the pipe organ swelled and the choir sang majestic praises – it was very emotional for me.  After the service we had a brunch with my parents and when we got home I saw that one of my friends had posted this song on facebook, and something resonated with me right there and then.  It was something intangible, something I couldn’t put my finger on – I just knew that this song was exactly what I was feeling all morning long as I too, found an inner joy and peace at the celebration of our Lord’s defeat of death and the grave.

I remember singing this song in choir years ago and I also found it in a songbook for some of my vocal students to sing over the years.  It’s one of my favorites.

In this Easter season – it is wonderful to reflect and “Be Ye Glad”.

Enjoy a wonderful arrangement of this song by “Glad”.

 

God Bless

In these days of confused situations
In these nights of restless remorse,
When the heart and the soul of a nation
Lay wounded and cold as a corpse

From the grave of the innocent Adam
Comes a song bringing joy to the sad.
Oh your cry has been heard and the ransom
Has been paid up in full, be ye glad

Chorus:
Oh, be ye glad, oh, be ye glad.
Every debt that you’ve ever had
Has been paid up in full by the grace of the Lord.
Be ye glad, be ye glad, be ye glad

So be like lights on the rim of the water
Giving hope in a storm sea of night
Be a refuge amidst the slaughter
Of these fugitives in their flight

For you are timeless and part of a puzzle.
You are winsome and young as a lad.
And there is no disease or no struggle
That can pull you from God, be ye glad
