Happy Easter!

I love Easter! It is seriously one of my favorite holidays. It is one of the holidays that make me wish I was a much better poet than I am so that I could write songs in expression of the joy I have in my salvation. But, alas, I have not been particularly gifted in this area. Praise God that so many others are! Praise God for the gift of His Son!

John 19:30 “It is finished!”

Matthew 28:6 “He is not here, He has risen just as He said.”

See What a Morning (Resurrection Hymn)
by Keith and Kristyn Getty

See what a morning, gloriously bright
with the dawning of hope in Jerusalem
Folded the grave clothes, tomb filled with light
As the angels announce, “Christ is risen!”
See God’s salvation plan,
Wrought in love, borne in pain, paid in sacrifice,
Fulfilled in Christ, the Man,
For He lives; Christ is risen from the dead!

See Mary weeping, “Where is He laid?”
As in sorrow she turns from the empty tomb;
Hears a voice speaking, calling her name;
Its the Master, the Lord, raised to life again!
The voice that spans the years
Speaking life, stirring hope, bringing peace to us
Will sound til He appears,
For He lives; Christ is risen from the dead!

One with the Father, Ancient of Days,
Through the Spirit who clothes faith with certainty
Honor and blessing, glory and praise
To the King crowned with power and authority!
And we are raised with Him
Death is dead, love has won, Christ has conquered!
And we shall reign with Him
For He lives; Christ is risen from the dead!
