At the Table: Conversations with the Bishop, Hospitality & Virtual Tools Trainings

South Georgia Easter Virtual Choir

We are excited to put together a South Georgia Easter Virtual Choir and hope you will join us! We have chosen to do a medley: Up From The Grave He Arose (UMH 322) & Because He Lives (chorus only). Below are some guidelines for you to follow in order to participate. Please read thoroughly! For questions, contact Allison Lindsey (allison@sgaumc.com). 

 

Recording/Uploading Instructions

  1. Download the music accompaniment backing track onto a computer, laptop, or extra smartphone. This track includes the accompaniment. (CUT OFF FOR THE ENDING WILL BE ON BEAT 5) The track can be found here:  https://drive.google.com/file/d/1GOc6pwzem-vOCNwQD94Y57sLGZf6bIq2/view?usp=sharing 

  2. Print the lyrics of the hymn included in this document (see below). 

  3. Practice your part along with the backing track.   

  4. When you’re ready to record, do some tests with the equipment you have. You will need two devices in order to record your video!

    1. First, a device that you can use to listen to the backing track; this could be a computer, tablet or extra smartphone that will allow you to listen to the backing tracks through headphones or earbuds while you sing.

    2. Second, a smartphone to record your video/audio with. We should only be able to hear your voice in the recording, since you are hearing the accompaniment through the headphones.

  5. Wear a solid color shirt and position yourself in front of a non-distracting background.

  6. Film in landscape - horizontal/sideways on your phone video camera.

  7. Record your video with one device while you listen through headphones/earbuds to the accompaniment backing track on the other device. You will be recording your voice only in the video; the accompaniment backing track should be audible in your ears only through the headphones. Anything you can do to eliminate background noise and distortion in the recording, please do!

  8. Upload your recordings/videos here:  https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1sDRYJSy4XCSToqK3x4sqstW_r7grpTvR?usp=sharing by Friday, March 5. (Extended from Monday, March 1)

Audio suggestions:

  • ALWAYS USE HEADPHONES or EARBUDS

  • If you have access to an external microphone, that will usually yield better quality audio. 

Video Suggestions:

  • Use a well-lit area so we can see your face.

  • Film in landscape

  • Smile!

 

Medley: Up From The Grave He Arose (UMH 322)
& Because He Lives (Chorus only)

 

UP FROM THE GRAVE HE AROSE! 

Verse 1: Low in the grave He lay

Jesus my Savior!

Waiting the coming day

Jesus my Lord!

 

Chorus: Up from the grave He arose

With a mighty triumph o'er His foes

He arose a Victor from the dark domain

And He lives forever with His saints to reign

He arose! (He arose)

He arose! (He arose)

Hallelujah! Christ arose!

 

Verse 2: Vainly they watch His bed

Jesus, my Savior!

Vainly they seal the dead

Jesus my Lord!

 

Chorus: Up from the grave He arose

With a mighty triumph o'er His foes

He arose a Victor from the dark domain

And He lives forever with His saints to reign

He arose! (He arose)

He arose! (He arose)

Hallelujah! Christ arose!

 

Verse 3: Death cannot keep his prey

Jesus, my Savior!

He tore the bars away

Jesus my Lord!

 

Chorus: Up from the grave He arose

With a mighty triumph o'er His foes

He arose a Victor from the dark domain

And He lives forever with His saints to reign

He arose! (He arose)

He arose! (He arose)

Hallelujah! Christ arose!

 

At the key change, segue into the chorus of Because He Lives

 

BECAUSE HE LIVES

Because He lives, I can face tomorrow,

Because He lives, all fear is gone;

Because I know He holds the future,

And life is worth the living,

Just because He lives! 

 

Repeats at end: 

And life is worth the living,

Just because He lives! (CUT OFF ON BEAT 5 FOR A CLEAN ENDING)
