Have a Blessed Easter

Christ The Lord Is Risen Today:

Christ, the Lord, is risen today, Alleluia!
Sons of men and angels say, Alleluia!
Raise your joys and triumphs high, Alleluia!
Sing, ye heavens, and earth, reply, Alleluia!

Love's redeeming work is done, Alleluia!
Fought the fight, the battle won, Alleluia!
Lo! the Sun's eclipse is over, Alleluia!
Lo! He sets in blood no more, Alleluia!

Vain the stone, the watch, the seal, Alleluia!
Christ hath burst the gates of hell, Alleluia!
Death in vain forbids His rise, Alleluia!
Christ hath opened paradise, Alleluia!

Lives again our glorious King, Alleluia!
Where, O death, is now thy sting? Alleluia!
Once He died our souls to save, Alleluia!
Where thy victory, O grave? Alleluia!

Soar we now where Christ hath led, Alleluia!
Following our exalted Head, Alleluia!
Made like Him, like Him we rise, Alleluia!
Ours the cross, the grave, the skies, Alleluia!

Hail, the Lord of earth and heaven, Alleluia!
Praise to Thee by both be given, Alleluia!
Thee we greet triumphant now, Alleluia!
Hail, the resurrection day, Alleluia!

King of glory, Soul of bliss, Alleluia!
Everlasting life is this, Alleluia!
Thee to know, Thy power to prove, Alleluia!
Thus to sing and thus to love, Alleluia!

Hymns of praise then let us sing, Alleluia!
Unto Christ, our heavenly King, Alleluia!
Who endured the cross and grave, Alleluia!
Sinners to redeem and save. Alleluia!

But the pains that He endured, Alleluia!
Our salvation have procured, Alleluia!
Now above the sky He's King, Alleluia!
Where the angels ever sing. Alleluia!

Jesus Christ is risen today, Alleluia!
Our triumphant holy day, Alleluia!
Who did once upon the cross, Alleluia!
Suffer to redeem our loss. Alleluia! 

I love that song for Easter, but we so seldom get to sing it, that I decided to put it here.

Here are pictures from the Children's Dramatic Musical on Palm Sunday. The Three Amigos each had a part. Ladybug's was the largest, and she was pretty nervous, but she did her best for Jesus and her best was wonderful! With a clear voice and confident gaze, she said each line with conviction. Then we heard cute Firefly say, "Hawewuya!" and Cowboy said, "He is risen!"

He is risen, indeed.

Palm Sunday

We wish you all an Easter blessed beyond measure...we have all been blessed beyond our own imaginings when the Son of God, who never sinned, gave himself as a sacrifice for all of us who are, who ever were, and who ever will be. No greater love has ever been shown. Go love on those who have been entrusted to your care and demonstrate our Father's love to them, so that they will see Him through you.

God bless you all and Happy Easter.
