More about Emily Rachel Middleton:
​​I love hymns and often have a tune in the background of my mind. I write lyrics as the spirit influences me, and as an expression of my own testimony. I hope that these hymns become an expression of testimony for others as well, Emily Rachel Middleton.

Lyrics: --
The heavens hung, earth did lament,
As were an everlasting death,
For Christ laid down His precious life,
For Christ laid down His precious life,
Now in the sepulcher He slept.

But darkness lifted from the sky,
For death could not this hostage keep,
Victorious from the tomb He rose,
Victorious from the tomb He rose,
For Him the grave could not defeat.

The heavens from their pining ceased
earth from sorrow The then renewed,
And from the rocks, shouts of rejoice,
And from the rocks, shouts of rejoice,
“The chains of death and hell have loosed.”
