Hope in Christ the Lord Is Risen Today

The darkness has passed and gave way to the hope of our Lord Jesus Christ.  He rises above the clouds and brings grace and an everlasting light.  He sheds that light in the storm; gives strength to the weak; and gives a voice for the voiceless.   Look up to the light and know that you are loved.

My favorite hymn for Easter Sunday is “Christ the Lord is Risen Today”.   The geese sang this hymn with us in the Sunrise service and almost 200 people joined in chorus for the 10:30 service – a gift to be a part of both.

Christ the Lord Is Risen Today, Alleluia!  
Earth and Heaven in chorus say, Alleluia!  
Raise your joys and triumphs high, Alleluia!  
Sing, ye heavens, and earth reply, Alleluia!

When we are weak, God will give us strength in ways we can’t even anticipate.  When we lose our voice,  Jesus Christ will speak on our behalf.  Raise your joys and triumphs high, for God has raised His Love most high – in the life and love of Jesus Christ.  And He did it for us.

There is Hope, for Christ the Lord is Risen today.  Alleluia.

    I like that hymn too! Excellent choice. It sounds cool to have the geese around too, even if some geese totally attacked me when I was little–your geese sound much more friendly. 🙂
