Story Behind “See What a Morning”

Song on YouTube

I wanted to write a triumphant melody, and as soon as I came up with this idea I heard ‘Resurrection’ – a song that could be sung on Easter morning or at the beginning of a time of worship, which excites us to the truth that Christ is risen. Stuart and I have enjoyed writing story songs together, and we chatted and decided this would be a great melody for the Resurrection story.

Stuart: Keith sent me through this melody with some lyrical thematic ideas. I really wanted to convey the immediacy of the Easter morning experience, and how that morning changed history forever. The third verse is a response of praise as we realise the amazing consequence of Christ’s resurrection for our lives, drawing us into relationship with the triune God.
