Remember And Proclaim – Sunday Songs

I’ve included Remember And Proclaim from Andrew Peterson’s Resurrection Letters Vol. 1 in Sunday Songs because it’s a song about the Lord’s Supper; and I think the Lord’s Supper is best thought of in the context of corporate worship.

The lyrics:
1.
As we gather round this table
We remember and proclaim
Christ has died, Christ is risen
Christ will come again
There’s nothing to fear and everything to gain
And so we gather here to remember
To remember and proclaim
2.
Every footstep tells the story
As the people join the feast
We remember his blood and body
Broken for you and me
One step and we remember
The other we proclaim
His death until He comes
O He’s coming back
He’s coming back again!
Chorus.
And every time we break the bread
We drink the wine,
I can hear the song in my heart and my head,
And I sing along…
We remember, we proclaim
His death until he comes again!
We remember, we proclaim
Christ has died, Christ has risen,
Christ will come again!
3.
Now we join with friends and neighbors
To celebrate again
Around a different kind of table
We remember just the same.
This feast, it is a battle
That we wage against the night,
This joy is just a shadow of the resurrection
Of the resurrection life!
Chorus.
And every time we break the bread,
We drink the wine,
I can hear the song in my heart and my head,
And I sing along…
We remember, we proclaim
His death until he comes again!
We remember, we proclaim:
Christ has died, Christ has risen,
Christ will come again!
Ending.
We remember, we proclaim
His death until he comes again!
We remember, we proclaim
Christ has died, Christ has risen,
Christ will come again!

I’ve Seen Too Much by Andrew Peterson

I’ve Seen Too Much, a track from Resurrection Letters Vol. 1 by Andrew Peterson.
The lives of the disciples only make sense in the light of the resurrection.

“I’ve seen so much that cannot be explained
And I realize it’s a mystery of faith
But my friend was dead and He walked out of the grave
And I knew the world would never be the same”

Risen Indeed by Andrew Peterson

Risen Indeed by Andrew Peterson.
The second track from Resurrection Letters Volume 1.
Peterson wrote the song some years ago, this album has had a long gestation.

“And so the seed that died for You becomes a seedling
Just put your hand into the wound that bought your healing”

A Guide To The Music Of Andrew Peterson (via Trevin Wax)

With a new Andrew Peterson record coming, and that record being Resurrection Letters Volume 1 – which has been promised for over ten years since the release of Resurrection Letters Volume 2 – there’ll probably be a bit of fuss at this blog over the next month or so.
Trevin Wax has done you all a favour (to borrow an Australian music phrase) and produced a massive overview of all Peterson’s album releases, from first to most recent.
Head over and have a read.
After the wonder that is Behold The Lamb Of God, I too, like Counting Stars and then Resurrection Letters Volume 2, but they’ve all got something to say.

Go and have a read, but most importantly, if you haven’t before

Is He Worthy? by Andrew Peterson

If you like Andrew Peterson’s music (and I’m a fan) then the release of Resurrection Letters Volume 1 (ten years after Resurrection Letters Volume 2) is big, big, news.
A five track prelude Resurrection Letters Prologue has already been released.
Is He Worthy? is a the first pre-release track from the album proper.
