Christ the Lord Is Risen Today!! Alleluia!!

My Heart is overflowing with the magnificence of Christ Jesus!! He is Risen!! I want to shout it out at everyone on the street. I ran into Wal-Mart this morning to pick up a last minute thing and I wanted to walk up to the greeter and give her a big hug and say, HE IS RISEN FROM THE DEAD AND HE IS LORD!!!. But I restrained myself and I simply told her Happy Easter. I think I should have maybe done the former. She may have thought I was crazy, but Oh Well. I am going to try harder to let my exuberance for the Lord Shine Out. I would for a rock star or movie star. Why not my Lord Jesus? I hope everyone has an awesome Easter!! For He has Risen!!

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!

God's Not Finished With Us Yet... said...

What a beautiful post. Although I have an awful voice of singing, I can always sing in my mind the words you share above. He is risen, yes indeed. Praise God for this new hope that He gave us!

My father who was a pastor always said that we don't give a second thought for cheering our heads off at a football game or even a concert so we should feel the same about what Jesus did for us! I'm with you in the shouting!!! Great post! said...
