He Is Risen!

Today is the day that the Lord has made … let us rejoice and be glad in it. Christ is Risen! He is risen indeed!

Our hope lies in Him. Our faith is strengthened because our God has sent his Son who has conquered the grave for us. We, whom he so greatly favors, have been given eternal lift through Christ Jesus.

God bless you all today! May you have a wonderful weekend with your family and friends and may we all remember that we are richly blessed. 🙂

Christus resurrexit! Resurrexit vere!

Christus ist auferstanden! Er ist wahrhaft auferstanden!

Christ est ressuscité! Il est vraiment ressuscité!

Cristo è risorto! È veramente risorto!

¡Cristo ha resucitado! ¡En verdad ha resucitado!

Χριστός ἀνέστη! Ἀληθῶς ἀνέστη!

Քրիստոս յարեաւ ի մեռելոց՜ Օրհնեալ է Յարութիւնն Քրիստոսի՜

Ua ala hou ´o kristo! Ua ala ´i ´o no ´oia!

המשיח קם באמת קם

基督復活了 他確實復活了

ハリストス復活!実に復活!

Christ has died, Christ is Risen, Christ will come again.

Today I’m including the video and lyrics for one of my favorite Wesley hymns … Christ the Lord is Risen today. I know that I posted this very same video last year, and maybe I’ll do something different next year, but this truly is the most fitting song for today. As much as I like contemporary services there is something I miss about a traditional Methodist service that especially rings true on days like Easter Sunday. Enjoy and God Bless!

Christ, the Lord, is risen today, Alleluia!
Sons of men and angels say, Alleluia!
Raise your joys and triumphs high, Alleluia!
Sing, ye heavens, and earth, reply, Alleluia!

Love’s redeeming work is done, Alleluia!
Fought the fight, the battle won, Alleluia!
Lo! the Sun’s eclipse is over, Alleluia!
Lo! He sets in blood no more, Alleluia!

Vain the stone, the watch, the seal, Alleluia!
Christ hath burst the gates of hell, Alleluia!
Death in vain forbids His rise, Alleluia!
Christ hath opened paradise, Alleluia!

Lives again our glorious King, Alleluia!
Where, O death, is now thy sting? Alleluia!
Once He died our souls to save, Alleluia!
Where thy victory, O grave? Alleluia!

Soar we now where Christ hath led, Alleluia!
Following our exalted Head, Alleluia!
Made like Him, like Him we rise, Alleluia!
Ours the cross, the grave, the skies, Alleluia!

Hail, the Lord of earth and Heaven, Alleluia!
Praise to Thee by both be given, Alleluia!
Thee we greet triumphant now, Alleluia!
Hail, the resurrection, thou, Alleluia!

King of glory, Soul of bliss, Alleluia!
Everlasting life is this, Alleluia!
Thee to know, Thy power to prove, Alleluia!
Thus to sing and thus to love, Alleluia!

Hymns of praise then let us sing, Alleluia!
Unto Christ, our heavenly King, Alleluia!
Who endured the cross and grave, Alleluia!
Sinners to redeem and save. Alleluia!

But the pains that He endured, Alleluia!
Our salvation have procured, Alleluia!
Now above the sky He’s King, Alleluia!
Where the angels ever sing. Alleluia!

Jesus Christ is risen today, Alleluia!
Our triumphant holy day, Alleluia!
Who did once upon the cross, Alleluia!
Suffer to redeem our loss. Alleluia!
