How to make a Resurrection Day Cake - “Grandma” Joelee Chamberlain
How to make a Resurrection Day Cake

Briefly, get a cake. Then scoop out a “tumb.“ Next, use a cookie or York mint patties for the door. Also, fresh flowers can be put on top. Like how the seat of a flower is buried and the flower blooms, so Christ was buried and rose from the dead.

This is “Grandma“ Joelee’s first video. She has done many audios previously. This video was shot by your son holding his phone and using pause for editing. Her later videos have gotten longer and are edited by a deacon at a former church. For her latest video, she got a tripod with a mount to shoot straight down. Lord willing, that video will be finished soon.

You can listen to her audios on her YouTube Channel, too. Or listen on your favorite podcast site.

Lyrics

Passover Lamb
Words by Sam Nadler & Stuart Dauermann, music by Stuart Dauermann

Pharaoh had us all enslaved, lab’ring in his land.
The Lord God heard our cry and freed us by His hand.
And by the blood of the pure and spotless Lamb
We’re free; we are all set free.
Passover’s Lamb’s blood upon the door,
Forming a cross to seal us from death’s jaw.
And by the blood of the pure and spotless Lamb,
We’re free; we are all set free.

Alleluia! Alleluia!
God of Abram,
Thank you for the Lamb.

God gave us Israel, but we turned away.
God gave the Law to us, but we disobeyed.
God gave His only Son to come and set us free.
We’re free, we are all set free.
Yes, we all did turn away and we all were lost.
So we took a perfect Lamb and nailed Him to a cross.
And by the blood of the pure and spotless Lamb
We’re free, we are all set free.

Alleluia! Alleluia!
God of Isaac,
Thank you for the Lamb.

Three days He lay; then Jesus did rise.
So all who will believe never have to die.
And by the blood of the pure and spotless Lamb
We’re free, we are all set free.
Passover Lamb’s blood upon the door,
Forming a cross to seal us from death’s jaw.
And by the blood, of the pure and spotless Lamb,
We’re free; we are all set free.

Alleluia! Alleluia!
God of Jacob,
Thank you for the Lamb.

Alleluia! Alleluia!
God of Israel,
Thank you for the Lamb.

Analysis

This is a great song from Jews for Jesus from the early 70s. It is off their second album, “I am Not Ashamed.” We do not have this one in our Friendship With God Hymnal. Next, some analysis.

This song has three verses and one course that is repeated in varying ways. The first verse is about the Exodus and the Passover lamb. The second verse is about Christ our Passover lamb dying for us. The last verse is about his resurrection (First Fruits/Easter). These verses have a pattern of seven, six, six, four, seven, six, six, four feet to them. This complexity reminds me of Joni Mitchell’s early folk music. The course is repeated once after each of the first two verses and twice after the last. The God of Abram, Isaac, Jacob, and Israel is praise. Note how alleluia is used instead of hallelujah. This is because the open vowels in alleluia work better here.

This is another great song by Stuart Dauermann co-authored with Sam Nadler.
