I hope I never lose sight of what happened on this day & how much God must love me in order to allow His one and only son to be crucified on the cross. While there is sorrow surrounding the happenings of today, there is jubiliation in the glorious happenings of Easter morning when Christ arose. Hallelujah Christ is Risen!
Some of my favorite traditional hymns center around Christs' resurrection & the victory we can find when we seek our Savior, Jesus Christ. I get chills everytime I sing this song.
Low In the Grave He Lay
Low in the grave he lay, Jesus my Savior, waiting the coming day, Jesus my Lord!
Refrain: Up from the grave he arose; with a mighty triumph o'er his foes; he arose a victor from the dark domain, and he lives forever, with his saints to reign. He arose! He arose! Hallelujah! Christ arose!
Vainly they watch his bed, Jesus my Savior, vainly they seal the dead, Jesus my Lord! (Refrain)
Death cannot keep its prey, Jesus my Savior; he tore the bars away, Jesus my Lord! (Refrain)
