Happy Resurrection Day! It indeed is a day to celebrate! To many it is a day for Easter egg hunts, chocolate bunnies, and family gatherings… it all is good. But to celebrate the empty tomb, and Jesus’ great victory over death it is great. To be able to thank Jesus for His personal victory over our sin debt is greater than words can express.
Great -day! Wondrous revelations understood,
He is risen, He that died on the piece of wood.
The tomb is empty; it holds just the rags that bound.
No other evidence within is found
Sweet joy floods the heart when this miracle is comprehended;
The truth, the battle fought has ended
Taste your victory; your triumph over sin and shame
All accomplished by Jesus name
He has risen! He has risen! Let your voice sing loud and clear,
Loud enough; so that the world, can its message hear.
Clap your hands and dance, rejoice that you can see,
All that your Lord has done for thee.
Let the joy and peace of God flood your soul.
Allow His love to enter and to within you overflow.
I will be glad and rejoice in thee: I will sing praise to thy name, O thou most High.
And ye now therefore have sorrow: but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man taketh from you.
