Lyrics
When Jesus cried out
And the earth split and shouted
The name of the one
who has come again

The stone that was placed
Has been rolled away
Nothing stands in the way
Of His amazing grace

Arise and awake, oh child of my Grace
And look on the face of your Lord
Arise and awake, your sins did I take
This gift I have made of My love

Arise and awake
Arise and awake

Do not be afraid
As the lightning it shakes
The light brings us
grace from above

White as the snow
Our Lord sits aglow
And now you will know
We were never alone

Arise and awake, oh child of my Grace
And look on the face of your Lord
Arise and awake, your sins did I take
This gift I have made of My love

Arise and awake

Arise and Awake
I will proclaim for all who are willing to listen . . . I liked this song. Minor point: at 2:00 minutes, an organ or some keyboard instrument comes in that sounds a little distracting and somewhat harsh. It's not the notes being played, it is the effect being used. At 2:40, i'd fade that instrument out entirely. Have a blessed Palm Sunday, and Happy Easter!

Organ Solo
Yes, the organ solo isn't effected, but rather the "Jazz Organ" preset from Garageband. The mastering may have brought out a bit too much treble and made it a bit harsh. Thanks for listening!
