Easter is coming!
I am reading the gospel accounts in Mark and John. I am overwhelmed again by His love for us.
“Now my soul is troubled, and what shall I say? ‘Father, save me from this hour’?
No, it was for this very reason I came to this hour.
Father, glorify your name!”
Then a voice came from heaven, “I have glorified it, and will glorify it again.”
Lift Up Your Hearts, Ye People
Paul Gerhardt 1653
Lift up your hearts, ye people,
In songs of glad accord,
And in your adoration
Praise Christ, your risen Lord.
For He hath won the victory,
O’er sin and death’s dark night,
And filled the gloom and darkness
With resurrection light.
Now let the earth be joyful
In springtime’s bright array,
Let hearts downcast and lonely
Rejoice this Easter day;
The grave hast lost its triumph,
And death has lost its sting,
O, sing in exultation
To Christ, your risen King!
May the God of all peace, goodness, and righteousness flood your soul this Resurrection Sunday. May His love penetrate every area of your heart.
