Don’t be fooled by the Latin feel of the song “Last Night” when the introduction plays. It’s lively and makes you sit up and take notice. It’s got just the perfect rhythm because the message of the burial and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ is something we need to get excited about! We need to let the message move in our souls and bring us to our feet to dance! I love this song because it reminds me that weeping may come for a time, but joy comes in the morning. It also reminds us of a name for Jesus that is sometimes overlooked: The Rose of Sharon. Satan thought he had Jesus “pruned,” but the Rose of Sharon just blooms without end.
Weeping may endure for a night, But joy comes in the morning. Psalm 30:5 (NKJV)
During the summer of 2010, our family had the privilege to see the Kingdom Heirs live at Dollywood. Not only are they exceptionally talented, they are all so nice. We got to meet them after the concert. This particular song reminds us that sometimes no words are necessary because the fact that Jesus wasn’t in that tomb on Easter morning says everything we need to know. It’s the story that needs to be on our lips every day.
I am the rose of Sharon, And the lily of the valleys. Song of Solomon 2:1 (NKJV)
