This week, we have a story written by Brian Thurbide, from Sydney Mines, Nova Scotia.  The author, Brian Thurbide, is enrolled in a literacy program at the Northside Day Class in North Sydney, part of the Adult Learning Association of Cape Breton County (ALACBC).  Brian has lived in Sydney Mines, Nova Scotia for over 17 years. He is the type of individual who likes to do just about everything.  Some of his favourite pastimes are: playing guitar, writing songs and Karaoke.  He has been involved in cabinet making and doing auto body and mechanical repairs on vehicles. Brian would like everyone to know that going back to school was one of the best decisions he has made.  It took him a year to get the courage to make the phone call to enroll in classes with the ALACBC and he is happy he did.

Jesus has risen...

by Brian Thurbide

Jesus has risen the rock has moved away. Jesus has risen the rock has moved away. There is no one inside it’s hard to believe that he has died.

He has risen to new life so souls will be saved. Jesus has risen o’ praise him today.

Praise him today as you go on your way.

Jesus has risen the rock has moved away. There is no one inside just emptiness within. Jesus has risen he has risen to free us from sins.

Jesus has risen the rock is moved away.

Jesus has risen praise him today.

Praise his holy name sing halleluiah to the king of glory.

It’s true his story the stone has moved away. He has risen to new life today.

Jesus has risen the stone has move away.
