You’re raising up my heart from the dead.
If you’ve been following our coverage of the seven part video series by the Vigil Project throughout Lent and Easter, you’ll notice a change in their penultimate song, “Seeking and Saving.” It just…so…fun! (Cue lights, banjo, percussion.)
In the words of artists Greg&Lizzy, “It’s a song of celebration, celebrating that Jesus is risen, and it’s a time to rejoice. In the gospel Jesus came for us, he came for the lost, for you and me.”
The style of the song reflects a theme that Pope Francis has brought to the forefront of his papacy: the joy of the Gospel. We can’t be “sourpusses,” and we “must never look like someone who has just come back from a funeral!” he says. We have to be fully convinced of the victory that has been won for us!
“The song, it’s got a lot of fun in it,” continue Greg&Lizzy. “And I feel like celebration should be fun. We want to have a good time. We want to have a real celebration of the fact that Christ has come to seek and save the lost, and that’s something we’re celebrating.”
