Christ the Lord Is Risen Today

Charles Wesley, 1793

  1. Christ the Lord is ris’n today, Alleluia!
    Sons of men and angels say, Alleluia!
    Raise your joys and triumphs high, Alleluia!
    Sing, ye heav’ns, and earth, reply, Alleluia!
  2. 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!
  3. Love’s redeeming work is done, Alleluia!
    Fought the fight, the battle won, Alleluia!
    Death in vain forbids His rise, Alleluia!
    Christ hath opened paradise, Alleluia!
  4. Soar we now where Christ hath led, Alleluia!
    Foll’wing our exalted Head, Alleluia!
    Made like Him, like Him we rise, Alleluia!
    Ours the cross, the grave, the skies, Alleluia!
  5. 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!
  6. King of glory, Soul of bliss, Alleluia!
    Everlasting life is this, Alleluia!
    Thee to know, Thy pow’r to prove, Alleluia!
    Thus to sing, and thus to love, Alleluia!

Happy Easter!

Spring Break – 2017

It’s such a blessing to begin a new season! Spring always seems like such a joy to me with it’s brighter and warmer days, after winter’s darkness and coldness. We are happy to officially begin spring and Spring Break today, even though we unofficially started ours March 16th. This season holds another treasure for us as a family: we await the birth of a new baby any day now. Everything is as ready as possible, and any extra events or tasks of our schedule are paused. Basic household chores naturally continue, as do stories, games, park days, and visits with family and friends.

May you also have a happy Spring Break, full of joy as a new season of life begins!
