“The Miracle” Easter Song by Shawna Edwards

Easter Song -- the Miracle by Shawna Edwards

We wanted to include an addendum to yesterday’s post sharing Shawna Edwards’ new Easter song, “The Miracle”. (We were so anxious to share it that we didn’t get all of the information we would have wanted to share with it.)

First, we wanted to share some of Shawna’s thoughts as she wrote “The Miracle.”

We often talk about the wondrous miracles of Jesus Christ — walking on the water, healing the blind, raising the dead. I started out to write this song about those miracles. But as I began crafting the lyrics and the message, I realized — His greatest miracle by far is the one He did for us, for me. “The miracle that rescues me.” I wanted to make it clear how personal the Atonement is to me, how uniquely suited for my needs, my inadequacies, and my struggles, as it is for yours. My name was graven on His hands. And yours was, too.

You can read more about how this song came to be at the Shawna Edwards website.

She has expressed how her life has been blessed as others from many faiths have shared their faith in Jesus Christ. (p.s. If you haven’t yet heard it, you might also enjoy “Do You Have Room?”)

This post has been edited from the original.

    What a beautiful, thought provoking song you’ve given us to listen to at this annual time of renewal. This was truly inspired and helps us reflect on the blessings He has given us. His gift of Eternal Life is the greatest of all gifts! Any time we can be reminded to come unto Christ and share that reminder with others, it is truly wonderful!

    I would love to have a copy of the sheet music to share with my family. These are the kinds of pieces I like to have my children and grandchildren learn to play and listen to also!

    Thank you,
    Nancy

    I LOVE the song and would love a copy of the music. I wish I had a children’s choir to teach it to — but I know I will again!!

  8. What a great song to remember Easter and about Jesus. I love the words and how simple the story is. It tells about Jesus and all he has done for us. I have a strong testimony of Christ and the atonement and I love the Easter holiday because it makes me think about it more. Thank you the beautiful song I enjoy listening to it.

    Shawna, thank you for sharing this gift with our family this year. Next to Christmas, Easter is my favorite holiday for the simple reminder of the wondrous gift the atonement is to us. I loved listening to this new song. It touched my heart and I would love to share it with others. If I could have a copy of the sheet music, I would appreciate it! Thanks so much!

    Nothing can invoke the spirit of Christ and his meaning than the music of children. I hope I can teach this song to my grandchildren. Through its message it might strengthen them someday when trials come into there life.

    I love the miracle song. I volunteer teaching music to an enrichment program at a church for underprivelaged children. “Miracle” is a perfect Easter Song that embodies what it’s all about with a beautiful melody. I would love a copy of the Miracle Song. I tried to purchase the sheet music but I couldn’t get through to the payment page. I was brought back to the “add to cart” page.
    Thank you & God Bless!

    This song is beautiful. My daugther along with a few other children at church are trying to arrange to play this for church. I am so excited to hear them perform. It will be a mix of violin, cello, piano, and voice.

  16. Thanks for sharing your new song “The Miracle.” It has such meaningful words and beautiful melody. I want to share it with the worship/arts minister at my church to see if the children’s choir would be able to sing it at church.

    What a great song to share with the congregation at Easter (The Miracle). I have two children several years apart due to infertility. To me they are both miracles. We would love to have the sheet music to have my oldest sing to let her know what a miracle she is along with her new baby sister.

    My daughter was looking for an easter song to sing in sacrement. When we here this song she knew it was the one. If I could get the sheet music that would be awesome. PDF. Thank you
