Last summer, I was listening to Ben Everson’s “He Lives,” and immediately thought, That’s the song for next year’s Easter service.
It paints a contrasting picture of the cross in the verses with the bright hope of the resurrection in the chorus. The music reflects those moods.
I enjoyed arranging this for SATB and our orchestra. The video below is our ensemble and orchestra presenting the song at Oakwood.
Ben has posted the sheet music on his website. Head on over there and get it for your church.
You can purchase the music at beneverson.com.
