  • "Risen King" new Easter tune

    My wife and I wrote this one together Friday morning...obviously the production is "generic" sounding at this point with a loop throughout.

    I kinda think it wants to be a folk song....we'll see.

      Good job

      Great lyrics. Can you post them for better evaluation? I also like the chorus hook. I can hear this slowed down just a bit, and with an acoustic percussion plus acoustic guitar groove, then you throw in all of your string goodness.

      I like the idea of writing with your wife. My wife also helps me on lyrics, mostly in the screening and rewriting process, helping to clarify the thoughts and make the grammar clean - all of that detail stuff.

        "Risen King" lyrics

        “Risen King”
        by Trent and Deborah Smith

        Verse 1:
        Infinite wonder, infinite love,
        Innocent baby born.
        In a suffering world,
        Crying for freedom.

        Verse 2:
        Infinite wonder, infinite love
        Innocent body torn,
        There on the cross
        He purchased our freedom.

        Pre-chorus:
        Hope will shine
        Like a sweet sunrise.

        Chorus:
        Empty grave—you’re forgotten.
        Death, O Death—where is thy sting?
        Rescued souls—shout your freedom
        In the joy of a Risen King.

        Verse 3:
        Infinite comfort, infinite peace
        Resting in faith secure
        The promise remains
        The glory of heaven.

        Bridge:
        Hallelujah! Our Savior lives!
        Hallelujah! Our Savior lives!

            Really nice lyrics. The only thing I'd flag is the use of 'thy' in the chorus where 'your' would still work.

              feedback

              Good catch, Rich, on use of the word "thy." We definitely discussed that one in the writing process--obviously "your" is more consistent with the rest of the song, but I love the gravity of the original KJV quote "Death, where is thy sting?" It is so dramatic and noble...makes me think of knights and dragons or something. Maybe I should put quotations around that phrase so that it is obviously a quote?

              And Mark--thanks for the tip on slowing it down...I took it to band rehearsal last night, and it does indeed sound better mid-tempo.

                  Ccli

                  no, Wes--not on CCLI yet....too new.

                  We did it with the band Sunday--sounds nice just a little slower.

                  I use an AKG 414 ULS for vocals. My church has half a dozen of them and I borrow one now and then...
