Gospel, spiritual e quaresima: He rose

E’ tempo di quaresima… la Santa Pasqua di Resurrezione si avvicina.

In questi giorni nei quali il tema dominante di tutti i telegiornali è la violenza, la guerra, l’intolleranza, la morte, mi piace trasmettervi il testo di questo antico spiritual che dice:

Hanno crocefisso il mio Signore e l’hanno inchiodato sulla croce: ma è risorto, è risorto dalla morte!

He Rose

They crucified my Savior, and nailed him to the tree,
they crucified my Savior, and nailed him to the tree,
they crucified my Savior, and nailed him to the tree
and the Lord will bear my spirit home.

Then Joseph begged his body and laid it in a tomb,
then Joseph begged his body and laid it in a tomb,
then Joseph begged his body, and laid it in a tomb,
and the Lord will bear my spirit home. (Refrain)

Sister Mary she came running, a-looking for my Lord,
Sister Mary she came running, a-looking for my Lord,
Sister Mary she came running, a-looking for my Lord,
and the Lord will bear my spirit home.

An angel came from heaven and rolled the stone away,
An angel came from heaven and rolled the stone away,
An angel came from heaven and rolled the stone away,
and the Lord will bear my spirit home.

He rose, he rose, he rose from the dead!
He rose, he rose, he rose from the dead!
He rose, he rose, he rose from the dead,
and the Lord will bear my spirit home.
