Easter Sunday is probably the greatest day in the Christian calendar, the day when we remember the amazing resurrection of Christ from the dead. In the death and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ, we see the heart of the gospel and the providence of God; we see His love, mercy and grace, not to mention His almighty power!

Christ the Lord is risen today,
Sons of man and angels say,
Raise your joys and triumphs high,
Sing ye heavens and earth reply!

Love’s redeeming work is done,
Fought the fight the battle won,
Death in vain forbid Him rise,
Christ has opened paradise!

Hallelujah, He is risen!
Hallelujah, our sins have been forgiven!
Now we have power over the grave,
Christ the Lord is risen today!

Lives again our glorious King,
Where, O death, is now thy sting?
Dying once our souls to save,
Where thy victory, O grave?

All creation sings,
“Hallelujah! The King is risen!
Glory to the name of the risen Lord!”
Let all the earth proclaim,
“Hallelujah! Our sins forgiven!
Glory to your name forevermore!” (‘Risen Today’, Aaron Shust)
