I've been working on a song about firstfruits for a while. I love the fact that Easter Sunday was the day the future arrived. Jesus' resurrection appearances give us snapshots of the world to come. What a future!
This version is different from my earlier effort. Mainly because now it's a round. Yes I know. Another round. I think I might have a problem...
Firstfruits - taste of tomorrow
Firstfruits - hope when there's sorrow
Jesus rose up from the dead
to show all His people the world that lies ahead
It was country walks and heart-warming talks
Mind-blowing preaches and breakfast on beaches
Feasting and family and peace and grace
and Jesus our battle-scarred Brother, face to face.
