"Come, ye saints, look here and wonder,
See the place where Jesus lay;
He has burst His bands asunder;
He has borne our sins away;
Joyful tidings, Yes, the Lord has risen to-day!"
Easter Prayer for my Blogger Friends:
God our Father, creator of all, today is the day of Easter joy. This is the day on which the Lord appeared to those who had begun to lose hope and opened their eyes to what the scriptures foretold: that first he must die, and then he would rise and ascend into his Father's glorious presence. May the risen Lord breathe on our minds and open our eyes that we may know him in the breaking of bread, and follow him in his risen life. Grant this through Christ our Lord. Amen ~~ From New Cloud Abbey
