JESUS IS ALIVE MUSICAL OVERVIEW CHOIR: Worthy the Lamb by Gaither’s Band CD Soundtrack 4 (Organ Music begins: “Because

He Lives” chorus only) Narrator 1: Alleluia! Jesus is alive! Because He lives we can face tomorrow with him. One day, we will spend an eternity in His presence. We welcome you today this Easter Sunday to celebrate the greatest sacrifice that He has ever done for us. He came because He loved us. He knew it would not be an easy path that would lead him to the cross and then a tomb. Yet He willingly choose this road for you and me. "And when they drew nigh unto Jerusalem, Jesus and two disciples, the multitudes that went before, and that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna to the son of David: Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest." CHOIR: Worthy Is the Lamb by Darlene Zschech CD Soundtrack 5 (Organ Music begins: Break Thou the Bread of Life) Narrator 2: There were no hosannas as Jesus approached the time of his death. There were no shouts of praises when he was taken in the garden or as he stood before Pilate." And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body. And he took the cup, saying, Drink ye all of it; For this is my blood which is shed for many for the remission of sins. Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me." CHOIR: How Beautiful by Twila Paris CD Soundtrack 3 (Organ Music begins: The Old Rugged Cross)

Narrator 3: After the meal with His disciples, Jesus needed to be alone. He prayed in the garden, not my will but Thine. Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus and they stripped him, and put on him a scarlet robe. They placed a crown of thorns upon his head, and a reed in his right hand: and they bowed the knee before him, and mocked him, saying, Hail, King of the Jews! They spit upon him, and smote him on the head, took his robe off from him, and led him away to crucify him. Yet through it all, He prayed yet again, "Father, forgive them for they know not what they do." CHOIR: Lamb of God by Twila Paris CD Soundtrack 3 (Organ Music begins: It is Finished) Narrator 4: Later, knowing that everything had now been finished, and so that Scripture would be fulfilled, Jesus said, “I am thirsty.” 29 A jar of wine vinegar was there, so they soaked a sponge in it, put the sponge on a stalk of the hyssop plant, and lifted it to Jesus’ lips. 30 When he had received the drink, Jesus said, “It is finished.” With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit. These things happened so that the scripture would be fulfilled. He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures. He is risen! Jesus is alive! CHOIR: Guilty of Love by Beyond the Ashes CD Soundtrack 3 (Organ Music begins: I Will Praise Him – chorus only) Narrator 5: "Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting? But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. CHOIR: Worthy the Lamb by Gaither’s Band CD Soundtrack 4\

WORTHY THE LAMB Verse 1 SOLO Hear the cries of the shackled from the onset of time, For the chains of defeat there's no key. See the tears of the broken, the cries of the slaves: Is there no one worthy to set us free? Verse 2 SOLO Then the crying is stilled as the chorus rings out, The shackled released from their chains. And thousands of voices are swelling the song: Worthy the Lamb that was slain. ALL Worthy, worthy, Worthy the Lamb that was slain Worthy, worthy, Worthy the Lamb that was slain Verse 3 SOLO Then all the archangels, the saints of all time, Holding their crowns in their hands, Fall down before Him joining the song: Worthy, worthy the Lamb! ALL Worthy, worthy, Worthy the Lamb that was slain Worthy, worthy, Worthy the Lamb that was slain Praise Him, praise Him, Praise the Lamb that was slain Praise Him, praise Him, Praise the Lamb that was slain Praise the Lamb that was slain.

HOW BEAUTIFUL
How beautiful the hands that served The wine and the bread and the sons of the earth How beautiful the feet that walked The long dusty roads and the hill to the cross How beautiful, how beautiful How beautiful is the body of Christ How beautiful the heart that bled That took all my sin and bore it instead How beautiful the tender eyes, That chose to forgive and never despise How beautiful, how beautiful, How beautiful is the body of Christ And as He laid down His life, We offer this sacrifice That we will live just as he died, Willing to pay the price Willing to pay the price How beautiful the radiant bride Who waits for her groom with His light in her eyes How beautiful when humble hearts give The fruit of pure lives so that others may live How beautiful, how beautiful, How beautiful is the body of Christ How beautiful the feet that bring The sound of good news and the love of the King How beautiful the hands that serve The wine and the bread and the sons of the earth, How beautiful, how beautiful, How beautiful is the body of Christ

“Guilty of Love” 1st Verse: SOLO Judas led the soldiers to the garden where He prayed Jesus was arrested by the ones He came to save Swords and clubs and angry words were coming from all sides Jesus only saw the broken hearts of his accusers that night Chorus: He was guilty of compassion For the lonely and the weak Guilty of forgiving And setting prisoners free Guilty of believing The highest price was not too much But most of all The sinless lamb of God Was guilty of love 2nd Verse: SOLO Pilate said of Jesus, “I find no fault in this man” Still the crowd said, “Crucify!” and would not understand Pilate washed his hands and then he set Barrabas free Jesus was their only hope, but they were too hard-hearted to see (Repeat Chorus) Bridge: Love that sees the best inside the worst of us Love that did what no one would have done He paid with his own blood (Repeat Chorus) The Holy, Spotless, Worthy Lamb of God Was guilty of love Guilty of love.
