Chapel of the Angel

Inside the Chapel of Resurrection

This song is in reference to the Chapel of the Angel which is inside the edicule (little house) in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. This chapel protects the tomb of Jesus. Here is where the Angels spoke to Mary Magdalene the morning of the resurrection. To enter the tiny room which contains the tomb of Jesus, one must bow down very low, to get through the entrance.

Luke 24: 1-12

Before the walls enclosed this space
Before these stairs led to your grace
You stumbled up this bitter hill
To the place of the skull

Before they laid you in the tomb
Before the candles lit this room
You gave your life so we could be
United in your love forever

Now we pray our way
Through the Chapel of the Angel
Where the angel rolled away the stone
Consoling Mary Magdalene
Do not be afraid
For he is risen

Now we bow down low
As did His disciples
Into the chamber
From where He arose
Yes we bow down
In the Chapel of the Angel
Where Jesus overcame death’s dark shadows

We kneel down low
Humbled before you
Praying in this empty tomb
Praising your name
Trembling and marveled

We bow down low
In this holy place
We bow down low
Inside this sacred room
In the Chapel of the Angel
