​Was It A Morning Like This?

This song is by Sandi Patty and appears on the album Morning Like This (1986).


Was it a morning like this
When the sun still hid from Jerusalem?
And Mary rose from her bed,
To tend to the Lord she thought was dead?

Was it a morning like this,
When Mary walked down from Jerusalem?
And two Angels stood at the tomb,
Bearers of news she would hear soon?

Did the grass sing?
Did the earth rejoice to feel You again?

Over and over like a trumpet underground
Did the earth seem to pound, "He is risen!"
Over and over in a never-ending round
"He is risen! Hallelujah, hallelujah!"

Was it a morning like this,
When Peter and John ran from Jerusalem?
And as they raced towards the tomb,
Beneath their feet was there a tune?

Did the grass sing?
Did the earth rejoice to feel You again?

Over and over like a trumpet underground
Did the earth seem to pound, "He is risen!"
Over and over in a never-ending round
"He is risen! Hallelujah, hallelujah!"

Over and over like a trumpet underground
Did the earth seem to pound, "He is risen!"
Over and over in a never-ending round
"He is risen! Hallelujah, hallelujah!"

Was it a morning like this,
When my Lord looked out on Jerusalem?

He is risen!
Hallelujah, hallelujah
(Hallelujah)
Hallelujah!
(Hallelujah, hallelujah)
