Hello, Guys! Welcome back to “Sharing a catholic song.” In this episode, you are listening to a hymn recommended by an American friend Gwen. The hymn was sung by Carmelite Sisters who are called to promote a deeper spiritual life among God’s people through education, healthcare, and spiritual retreats. . The Sisters are also really brilliant to pray and praise in song for they have already recorded nearly 50 songs. This song was recorded in an album titled “Light into Fire.” So, let’s follow Gwen to know about the Sisters and enjoy their appealing voice.
Hello! My name is Gwen and I hail from Portland Oregon in the USA.
Today I’m going to be introducing a song to you which was sung by the sisters of the Sacred Heart of Los Angeles. The sisters are Carmelite and they sung this really beautiful hymn which is called Alleluia Resurrexit Dominus.
Alleluia, Resurrexit Dominus, Alleluia!
O mystery great and glorious, that mortal flesh should conquer death, and all our wounds and grievous sin, the Lord should heal by bearing them.
Behold how man, though crushed by death, now does arise and live with Christ, while death repelled and robbed of might, dies from its own malignant sting.
Follow we now, the Magdalene who neither guards nor earthquake fear. She moved by love approached the tomb, seeking her Lord and Master dear.
Is this thy body, risen Christ, which lay in death, all pale and torn? O Christians come, both young and old, to see the Lord on Easter morn!
From now through all eternity, His Body shines in radiant glow, trembling for joy cries all the earth! Captives set free by Him who rose!
So it has a Latin title that’s actually mostly English and it’s a song about the Resurrection of the Lord and going over just how wonderful.
What they sing is Mary Magdeleine at the tomb could not believe before her eyes that Christ is not there because he had been risen. And this is really incredible.
The power of music is amazing, especially the power of catholic songs. Glad to share with you guys! See you next time!
