He is Risen!!!

{The Garden Tomb by Thomas Kinkade}

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;
It's the Master, the Lord raised to life again!
The voice that spans the years,

Speaking life, stirring hope, bringing peace to us,

Will sound till 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 pow'r 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!

--Keith Getty & Stuart Townend

I love this "Resurrection Hymn." We have been teaching it to the kids this week and it is so precious to hear them sing
it! I hope you all have a very blessed Resurrection Sunday. Happy Easter!!!

That was a beautiful hymn. How nice too that you included that beautiful picture by Thomas Kinkaid. He was a wonerful painter of light and I believe he was a christian. I was sorry to hear of his homegoing last week, but if he was saved he is with his Lord now! Thanks for that post, Carrie. We had a wonderful Resurrection Sunday and glad that you did to.
