“Now after the Sabbath, toward the dawn of the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to see the tomb. And behold, there was a great earthquake, for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled back the stone and sat on it. His appearance was like lightning, and his clothing white as snow.”
“But the angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not here, for he has risen, as he said. Come, see the place where he lay.”
There in the ground His body lay,
Light of the world by darkness slain:
Then bursting forth in glorious day
Up from the grave He rose again
And as He stands in victory
Sin’s curse has lost its grip on me,
For I am His and He is mine
Bought with the precious blood of Christ.
“In Christ Alone” by Keith Getty/Stuart Townend
“For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures”
1 Corinthians 15:3-4
“I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”
From heaven to earth our Savior came
For us on a cross, He bled and died
And from the cross to an empty grave
He rose to life, He rose to life
He lives reigning in power
He lives, name above all names
Hallelujah now forever
Hallelujah Christ is risen!
“He Lives” by C.Tomlin/R. Morgan/B. Cantelon/N. Herbert
“Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting? The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
1 Corinthians 15:54-57
Like most of us whose plans and dreams
Have shattered on the way,
The women came with broken hearts
To the tomb on that day.
They had seen the stone,
They knew its size,
How could they get inside?
Hopeless now their efforts seemed,
For Hope had been crucified…
…They may have thought of turning back,
But compassion drew them on.
Amazingly as they came near,
They found the stone was gone.
He’d touched their lives,
He’d paid the price,
A man so good and kind.
But now when they would care for Him,
Only grave clothes did they find.
As quick as light, in glory white,
An angel brought God’s Word…
…He’s not here anymore, He’s alive!
Death has lost the fight to Jesus Christ.
Hell cries in agony, heaven celebrates victory.
Hallelujah, you have a risen Lord!
