Christ is risen! Alleluia!
Risen our victorious head!
Sing his praises! Alleluia!
Christ is risen from the dead!
Gratefully our hearts adore him
as his light once more appears,
bowing down in joy before him,
rising up from griefs and tears.
John S.B. Monsell 1811-1875
On Easter Sunday Christians celebrate the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. Christians believe, according to Scripture, that three days after his death on the cross Jesus was raised from the dead. Through his death, burial, and resurrection Jesus paid the penalty for sin, thus purchasing for all who believe in him eternal life in Christ Jesus. What joy and peace there is in knowing Christ and his salvation.
Today, in Churches throughout the world, people will come together to worship.
May his name endure forever; May it continue as long as the sun. All nations will be blessed through him, And they will call him blessed.
