Come People of the Risen King!

A good worship song should be a sermon in itself. It should clearly and beautifully proclaim truth from God’s Word. As I look ahead to Easter, I have been enjoying

the song, “Come People of the Risen King.” You can easily find it on YouTube if you would like to listen to it. As Christians, our hope and peace are not based on the shaky ground of our feelings or circumstances. Thank God for that after this last year! Instead our hope and peace are built on the firm foundation of our Savior’s death and resurrection! That is the joy of being “People of the Risen King!” I pray this song will help these Biblical truths sink deeply into your heart this Easter as you celebrate the resurrection of King Jesus!

Verse 1

Come people of the Risen King

Who delight to bring Him praise

Come all and tune your hearts to sing

To the Morning Star of grace

From the shifting shadows of the earth

We will lift our eyes to Him

Where steady arms of mercy reach

To gather children in


Rejoice rejoice let ev'ry tongue rejoice

One heart one voice

O Church of Christ rejoice

Verse 2

Come those whose joy is morning sun

And those weeping through the night

Come those who tell of battles won

And those struggling in the fight

For His perfect love will never change

And His mercies never cease

But follow us through all our days

With the certain hope of peace

Verse 3

Come young and old from ev'ry land

Men and women of the faith

Come those with full or empty hands

Find the riches of His grace

Over all the world His people sing

Shore to shore we hear them call

The truth that cries through ev'ry age

Our God is all in all
