Example #1: Youthful Praise feat. Kerry Brown - He Rose
spursfan4life, Uploaded on Apr 23, 2011
From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Youthful_Praise"Youthful Praise is an American gospel choir led by James "J.J." Hairston who directs the choir and composes most of their material."
Here's my partial transcription of "He Rose" by Youthful Praise featuring Kerry Brown:
Lead [spoken]- Come' on. Clap your hands everybody!
Choir- I owe God praise for what He’s done.
He loved me so that He gave His only Son.
He came to earth just to save us all.
By laying down His life on the rugged cross.
The devil thought he had Him.
He thought He was dead.
But what he didn’t know
that it was all part of the plan.
‘Cause He rose
with all power in His hand.
in His hand.
[repeat Chorus with Lead and Choir overlapping lines such as]
Lead- Oh I owe God
Choir [overlapping with Lead] - I owe God
Lead- Oh yeah
Choir - Praise for what He’s done
Lead- Praise for what He’s done...
Choir - He conquered hell for me.
Lead- He conquered the grave for me.
Choir- He conquered the grave for me.
Choir- And He rose.
Lead- He rose.
Choir-For He rose.*
With all power
Lead - With all power
Choir -In His Hand
Lead- In His Hand
Choir- He conquered hell for me.
Lead – He conquered the grave for me.
Choir -‘Cause He rose with the power
Lead-With all power
Choir - In His hand...
Choir-Hallelujah He rose
Lead- He rose for me
Choir -Hallelujah He rose
Lead -He rose for me.
Choir- He rose for me
Lead- Oh yes.
Choir- Hallelujah He rose
Lead- He rose
Choir- He rose
Lead- With the power
Choir- With the power
Lead- In His hand
Choir- In His hand.
Choir- In His hand
Partial transcription by Azizi Powell. Much of this song consists of the Lead extemporaneous repeating previous lyrics & the choir repeating what the lead sings. Addition and corrections are welcome.
*For He rose may be "'Cause He Rose".
