He Is Risen

As I left work this morning at 7:00 a.m. the sun was bursting into view on the eastern horizon prompting these words as the Son rose in my heart:

Jesus is risen, the angels announced it,

Jesus is risen, He's no longer dead;

Jesus is risen, redemption completed,

Jesus is risen, the glad tidings spread!

Jesus is risen, death has been conquered,

Jesus is risen, our soon-coming King;

Jesus is risen, new life He has given,

Jesus is risen, His praises now sing!

Dear friends...we serve a risen Savior! He is alive for evermore!

Yes He deserves all of our praises Pilgrim David!!

Majestic sweetness sits enthroned
Upon the Savior's brow;
His head with radiant glories crowned,
His lips with grace o'erflow.

No mortal can with Him compare
Among the sons of men;
Fairer is He than all the fair
That fill the heavenly train.

To Him I owe my life and breath,
And all the joys I have;
He makes me triumph over death,
And saves me from the grave.

To God, the Father, my abode,
He brings my weary feet;
Shows me the glories of my God,
And makes my joys complete.

Since from His bounty I receive
Such proofs of love divine,
Had I a thousand hearts to give,
Lord, they should all be Thine.

Nice picture David....... Up from the grave He arose, With a mighty triumph o'er His foes!

I love the photo! Perfect for the occasion!

LauraMae, I am sooo glad to see you over here! Did those threats from Pilgrim work? Are you scared of that wet noodle?! And, would you believe that I thought of those same words you wrote there, when I saw that photo. ;) I hope you stay around, LauraMae, I've missed you lately.

Love and Prayers,

The older I get, the more glorious the news! Hope your Easter was filled with much joy over our risen Savior!
