Happy Easter!

We know it has been a long time since you have heard from us (hoping to change that soon…) but we wanted to wish you a blessed Resurrection Week, remembering Christ’s sacrifice for us and His triumph over sin and death. He is alive – we serve a Risen Savior!

 

Welcome Happy Morning
V.F., translation by John Ellerton

“Welcome, happy morning!” age to age shall say;
“Hell today is vanquished! Heaven is won today!”
Lo! The dead is living; God for evermore,
Him, their true Creator, all His works adore.

“Welcome, happy morning!” age to age shall say;
“Hell today is vanquished! Heaven is won today!”

Earth with joy confesses, clothing her for spring,
All good gifts return with her returning King;
Bloom in every meadow, leaves on every bough,
Speak His sorrows ended, hail His triumph now.

Maker and Redeemer, life and health of all,
Thou from heaven beholding human nature’s fall,
Of the eternal Father true and only Son,
Manhood to deliver, manhood didst put on.

Thou, of life, the author, death didst undergo,
Tread the path of darkness, saving strength to show;
Come then, True and Faithful, now fulfill Thy Word;
‘Tis Thine own third morning; rise, O buried Lord!
