SOMETHING'S HAPPENING

Kyla Rowland

Something's happening in Bethlehem
From a stable a lovely light glows within
Is that a baby crying? There's excitement in the wind
Something's happening in Bethlehem

-Recitation-
He was born in Bethlehem. Shepherds declared that angels announced His birth. Now that caused a stir. When men came asking, “Where is He that is born King of the Jews? We’ve seen his star and have come to worship Him,” Herod was filled with wrath. The babe, now a man, teaching a new doctrine with compassion and authority; the people are following him. The chief priests and elders are outraged. There’s a mob outside of Pilate’s hall today; something’s happening.

Something's happening in Pilate's hall
On the porch, Pilate pleads with an angry mob
In this man called Jesus, I can find no fault
Something's happening in Pilate's hall

-Recitation-
I watched as His beaten, disfigured body fall beneath the load of the cross. His mother ran to Him; the soldiers pushed her away. I heard the hammer fall and I knew the nails had been driven and He was on the cross. The scoffers kept chanting; I heard him speak words of forgiveness. There was a darkness over the earth and a great earthquake. Then I heard him cry from the cross “It is finished.” We watched Him die, but somewhere deep within my being I know this is not over.

Something's happening at Joseph's grave
Where Jesus of Nazareth has laid three days
Very early in the morning out of the earth he cast away
Something's happening at Joseph's grave

Come and feast your eyes on an empty tomb
Come and smell the fragrance where Sharon blooms
Then the Lamb resurrected will come into view
And something will happen deep inside of you

Something’s happening where Jesus lay,
Yeah, something happened on Judgment Day
Something’s happening at Joseph’s grave
Hallelujah, Hallelujah,
Something happened,
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
