Easter 2011Posted: April 24, 2011
For the past few days, I’ve been singing. (Quietly or in my head because as MFP can tell you, my singing voice, leaves a lot to be desired. Also, that is a story I need to tell here on the ole bloggity-blog. Also known as my most embarrassing moment.)
Okay, I’m back. Yes, I’ve been singing. And when in my car or with baby H, not so quietly because she can’t tell me to hush. I’ve been singing my favorite Easter song, which of course, my church did NOT sing AGAIN! So, here is me “singing” it.
Up from the grave He arose!
With a mighty triumph o’re His foes!
He arose a victor from the dark domain
And he lives forever with the saints to reign!
Hallelujah! Christ arose!
(This must be sang in a deep, gravely voice to get the full effect.)
Amen! I am so thankful that I serve a living Savior. But I have to ask myself why I have only been singing this for the past few days. This should be my song all year. Jesus is the victor over death. And because he is victorious, I am also.
“They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. While they were wondering about this, suddenly two men in clothes that gleamed like lightning stood beside them. In their fright, the women bowed down with their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, “Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee: ‘The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of the sinful men, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.’ Then they remembered his words.” Luke 24:2-8
