Hardly a day goes by that I don’t think, in some way, about Christ’s crucifixion and resurrection. Today is no different. Wait, it is different, for today is the Church’s official celebration of that creation-changing, world-changing, life-changing Day. Today, let there be loud singing and joyous dancing. Let there be massive celebration over all the Earth, for our Jesus is alive! Let there be all of that, but, most importantly, let Him be the Lord of your life.
Rejoice, My Soul – All People, Rejoice!
I celebrate this holiest
Of all the days of holiness,
For as the sun appears to rise
In the East,
The Son of God did arise
On Easter – Resurrection Day,
The greatest Day the Lord Has Made.
I rejoice and I am exceedingly glad in it,
For my Savior lives!
Oh, Lord, He lives!
Now and forever, He lives!
And because He lives,
So can I!
For my heart, too, was sealed
With hardened stone
And in that darkened tomb
With tender touch He moved
The hardened part away
To let in light and life
So death was put to death.
The Holy Spirit Jesus sent
Was sent to live in me.
As Christ began to breathe again
I felt my spirit leap.
It leapeth still in Heaven’s realm
So graciously removed from hell
That I can only raise my hands and say
Rejoice, all people, rejoice!
Hallelujah, praise God, rejoice!
For our Savior lives and breathes in us.
He arose, he conquered bitter death, and saved.
He does that, still, today!
