We His Bride…

 Behold!  He is risen! Let the earth burst forth with joy!

 

“There is something about the very early morning which is entrancing: it is so quiet, so new. The world has been reborn during the hours of darkness; there is a bloom upon it like the bloom upon an untouched grape. The sun was hidden behind clouds so the light had a silvery softness; a haze lay upon the meadows by the river; cows grazed      peacefully; the town clock chimed…The town was awakening now…”                                           ~ D.E. Stevenson, Charlotte Fairlie

On this Resurrection Sunday, choosing from so many of these beautiful Marty Goetz songs I’ve been sharing this week, a wondrous line in his “We Being Many (are one body in Christ)” captures my heart with all that Easter celebrates:  We being many are His Bride, taken from His side…  

Mm… Like Eve, from Adam… Now we, His Bride… taken from Jesus’ side…  Glorious thought that springs tears to my eyes…

And the picture of God’s Love compared to a mother’s for her newborn child (so portrayed before me lately with several babies born amidst us)… for in His Resurrection is our birth into eternity…

And so, I will offer this… one more  song for you… as Alleluia Blessings of Easter Sunday Joy…  

Words to flow and ripple like water from a clear stream.

Heart and melody to enfold your own, lift you to His arms.

Hope to soar your dreams of all He has planned, beyond anything we possibly imagine…

One of Marty’s most tender renditions is on this Psalm Enchanted Evening link (that includes several beauties)… Should you just want to hear We Being Many alone, though, pull the playbar across until you see his wife and then little daughter standing beside his piano:

We Being Many

By Marty Goetz, DVD, Psalm Enchanted Evening

And we being many are one body in Christ, in Christ
And everyone members of one another
Loving each other, with God as our Father
Who loves us as a mother loves her newborn child

We are His Bride, taken from His side
When blood and water fell from the broken heart of Israel
See the Lord provide the precious Lamb who died
The great “I Am”” who cried “Eli, Eli, Lama Azavtani,
Abba, El Shaddai, to God I give my life…”

[Repeat, in harmony…]

    Such beautiful symbolism you have expressed here, Pam. And I am indebted that you have introduced me to this wonderful singer, whose music is such a joyous praise to God. Bless you, and Happy Easter!
    Love
    Lynni

    • His beautiful lyrics inspired me. 🙂 Thanks, Lynni.

      Yes… it isn’t that he is always perfect in his voice, but it is really lovely to listen to, and most of all I just LOVE his worshipful music! I’m so glad it is blessing you too! See my email that I just sent you regarding your question on the DVD… Praying you feel totally well!

    I LOVE Marty Goetz! Not many know of him I don’t think. So fun to have this in common with you!

    • Oh Elizabeth, I actually think I had a Cassette tape of his years ago but lost it… and then heard him on radio but was never able to get anything more by him. I just saw a you tube of him from just two years ago with his grown daughter playing at a location within 15 minutes of where I grew up! Another state from where I am now… but he deserves to be heard of more! I’m blessed to know we share that too! 🙂 Must be the poetic in you and my love of lyrical, mmm… 🙂

    LOVE it that we are all part of the Bride, and that one day we will know each other well and be able to visit often with each other, with all the heroes of our faith, but most of all to spend quality time with our glorious triumphant Bridegroom. O Happy day!
    Thanks for a lovely Easter series Pam- I’ve been so blessed, journeying with you 🙂

    • Me, too, Mary! Incredible thoughts… I’m so blessed that these simple messages have touched you too… and most of all the chance to share this lovely music. So amazing to be in touch across the world! Thanks again for the most beautiful ecard! I just LOVE it!

    Beautiful! I’m learning to get slower and quieter in my worship. This has inspired me to continue down that path. Thank you so much for sharing
