01. Happy Day

Holding Nothing Back
by Tim Hughes



 

The greatest day in history, Death is beaten

You have rescued me

Sing it out Jesus is alive

The empty cross, The empty grave

Life eternal

You have won the day

Shout it out Jesus is alive

He's alive


Oh happy day, happy day

You washed my sin away

Oh happy day, happy day

I'll never be the same

Forever I am changed


When I stand, in that place

Free at last, meeting face to face

I am Yours Jesus
You are mine


Endless joy, perfect peace

Earthly pain finally will cease

Celebrate Jesus is alive

He's alive



Oh happy day, happy day

You washed my sin away

Oh happy day, happy day

I'll never be the same

Forever I am changed


Oh what a glorious day

What a glorious way

That You have saved me

Oh what a glorious day


What a glorious name


Oh happy day, happy day

You washed my sin away

Oh happy day, happy day

I'll never be the same

Forever I am changed


What a glorious glorious day,

I'll never be the same





Behind the Song:
A while ago I was having a conversation with a theologian friend of mine. He was challenging me that there was a lack of new songs that spoke of the resurrection of Christ; that got me thinking. At the time I was reading, “The Empty Cross of Jesus,” by Michael Green. In it I stumbled across a challenge that Michelangelo once laid down to fellow artists who were forever depicting Christ in his death on the cross, ‘Paint him instead the Lord of life.’ With all these thoughts buzzing in my head, I picked up my guitar and began to worship. Fumbling around with some chords and melodies a verse was being formed. I then sang out the chorus, “Oh happy day, happy day, You washed my sin away. Oh happy day, happy day, I’ll never be the same.” The final stages of the song came when I rehearsed the song with my band. I wondered if there might be one last section of the song to add. My friend Ben, who was playing keys, tried some new chords and I started singing over them. After a few minutes the bridge was complete. The only thing now was to finalise the lyrics. The verses aim to fill our lips with the truth and joy of all that Christ has done for us. My desire, by the time the chorus is reached, is that hearts explode with praise. ---Tim Hughes
