Easter Joy

Sing, soul of mine, this day of days.
The Lord is risen.
Toward the sunrising set thy face.
The Lord is risen.
Behold he giveth strength and grace;
For darkness, light; for mourning, praise;
For sin, his holiness; for conflict, peace.
Arise, O soul, this Easter day!
Forget the tomb of yesterday,
For thou from bondage art set free;
Thou sharest in His victory
And life eternal is for thee,
Because the Lord is risen.

Hi Terra, I spent my Easter weekend trying my best to be electronic gadget free and I watched a 3-hr musical play about Jesus life. It was wonderful!

I hope you had a nice Easter break.

Have a great week ahead.

This poem exactly encapsulates the true meaning of Easter. Whatever the belief, or otherwise, of the individual, this is a time of such hope, promise and renewal.

We trust, as this Eastertide draws to a close, that you have enjoyed real happiness and peace.

Thank you for that lovely poem. He is risen. We are blessed that we know it. I'm doing the A to Z challenge on my blog again this year. For my R post today I chose Redeemer and Resurrection. Even though I know I have non Christian blog readers, I felt this Easter season was the perfect time to bear testimony of my love for my Redeemer and my faith in His resurrection for my R post.

Have a nice week.
