HIS CROSS STOOD UP (BROKEN)

(by Kim Ilene McDaniel & Michael Lehr)

A stark and uncompromising but very good communion song

I met Kim this year on the Christian Songwriting Organisation mailing list where she posted the original version of these lyrics. There was some discussion of whether or not the resurrection should at least be hinted at, but she felt passionately that communion was a time to concentrate on the crucifixion.

She sent me an unaccompanied vocal recording, we agreed to collaborate and she was happy with the outcome. This is the result.

There is an MP3 which you can access by clicking here.

Lyrics (Kim Ilene McDaniel and Michael Lehr)


Chorus:
I’m a child of the King, a child of the King;
Was lost but now I’m found.
I’m a child of the King, a child of the King;
Was lost but now I’m found.

(repeat chorus)

V1:
You will hear me say,
You will hear me shout.
You will hear me proclaim
Glory to your name .

Chorus

V2
You deserve my praise;
I give it all to you.
Jesus, I will sing to you
Glory, hallelu ....jah .

Chorus

Bridge:
I’m your child, Jesus
(repeat x3)

Chorus (x2 - second ideally unaccompanied)
