O, mare zi, scumpă zi

E-o mare zi-n istorie,
Moartea ai înfrânt și sunt salvat,
Voi cânta: „Isus este viu!”
E crucea și mormântul gol,
Viață nouă Tu mi-ai câștigat!
Să strigăm: „Isus este viu, El e viu!”
O, mare zi, fericită zi,
Când păcatul mi-ai spălat!
O, mare zi, fericită zi,
Pe veci eu sunt schimbat!
Când am să stau în locul sfânt,
Voi putea Fața să-Ți privesc.
Sunt al Tău, Isus, ești al meu!
Pace fără de sfârșit,
Suferința ai zdrobit,
Acum celebrăm: Isus este viu, El e viu!
O, glorioasă zi
Și-n ce mod minunat
Tu m-ai salvat!
O, glorioasă zi,
Când Tu m-ai salvat!

Povestea din Spate (EN)

"There's a theologian at HTB, Graham Tomlin, who once told me that there are very few contemporary songs about the resurrection. It was Easter time... and he was telling me that there are lots of songs about the cross but less about Jesus being alive. So that really got me thinking - and I was actually reading this book, and it had this quote from Michelangelo. He laid out a challenge to fellow artists who depict Christ in His death. He said, 'Paint Him instead the Lord of life'. I remember one morning just jamming around with my guitar and I started singing out some of these lines and pretty quickly, it all came together. So in one sense, it was that this is an amazing truth that we need to sing, and celebrate that Jesus is alive and that makes all the difference."
