Mfurahini, haleluya/Christ Has Arisen, Alleluia (#188)
Bernhard Kyamanywa (b. 1938) was an orphan and was taken in by the Bethel Mission and raised by a German deaconess. He first became a teacher, but in 1968, started working as a Lutheran pastor in Tanzania. The song’s lively melody is also from Tanzania via the Lutheran Church, this has become a favorite Easter song in part through recordings by St. Olaf and other choirs.
