A celebration of both the sacrifice and sovereignty of Jesus Christ, Raise the Crown invites you to relive the events of Holy Week through poignant narrations and breathtaking new arrangements of signature Easter songs from Deborah Craig-Claar and David T. Clydesdale. Classics such as “Arise,” “Where the Nails Were,” Michael W. Smith’s “Hosanna” and Babbie Mason’s “All Rise” find new life in this emotional retelling of Christ’s crucifixion and resurrection. Additional highlights include popular praise songs like “Raise Up the Crown” and “Jesus, We Crown You with Praise” that invite the congregation to join the choir in worshiping our risen Lord.
Through its compelling arrangements and timeless message, Raise the Crown affirms that Jesus Christ is the King of all creation, but through His death and resurrection, we become joint heirs to His eternal promise: “Be faithful, and I will give you the crown of life!” (Rev. 2:10)
