What are the odds that R would fall on Holy Thursday ??
As you may know, or recently learned from my postings, I am part of a Church Choir. I've been a member of this choir for 4 years. Before this, I didn't know a Catholic Hymn from a pop song, however, I've learned the difference now!
People often think of church music (especially Catholic Church music) as boring and drawn out, however, there are some very awesome songs. Most of them are not in English, go figure. The one I will be talking about today is ONLY sung at Lent during the Easter Vigil (Saturday night) and Easter Sunday.
One of the songs I learned is called Resucitó/He Is Risen. It is usually sung in Spanish. It is a beautiful song, I wish I had a video of my choir singing it, but I don't. However, here is another choir doing it justice.
Resucitó, resucitó, resucitó, aleluya. Aleluya, aleluya, aleluya, resucitó. Final: Aleluya (hold).
La muerte ¿dónde está la muerte?
¿Dónde está mi muerte?
¿Dónde su victoria?
Gracias sean dadas al Padre
que nos pasó a su reino
donde se vive de amor.
Alegría, alegría hermanos,
que si hoy nos queremos
es que resucitó.
Si con Él morimos,
con Él vivimos, con Él cantamos.
Verses in English - not pure translation
And death now, vanished is the fear now,
banished are my tears now,
death has passed away.
The kingdom, praise to God, the kingdom!
Raised up to the kingdom,
we shall live in love.
Our gladness, blessful in our gladness,
this will be our gladness,
that he is alive.
With him then, die and live with him then,
rise and sing our hymn then,
