Easter Blessings

Easter Blessings to all of you!  During this time of staying put and not seeing to many people I have been blessed by a lot of talented people.

There have been the blessings of humor in the memes people have posted on various social media. These have totally brightened my days!

I have been blessed by pastors who share their Biblical wisdom on live streamed church services. I have been blessed by pictures of pastors who stood in the snowstorm this Easter Sunday (yes we are having a snowstorm!) and preached to a parking lot of people sitting in their cars.

I also relearned, from Pastor Brian, that “the empty tomb isn’t to just keep us from dying–it is to show us how to live.”  Abundant life in Christ, changes everything.

During these day I have also been blessed by a gal named Janene. She is a talented piano player and has been sharing those talents on Facebook. She takes requests for old hymns, new hymns and uplifting songs.

Today I wanted to share with you; her song for Easter Sunday…..Low In The Grave He Lay. I hope it blesses you as much as it has blessed me. (And I do hope the link works for you!)

Low in the grave He lay Jesus my Savior
Waiting the coming day Jesus my Lord
Up from the grave He arose
With a mighty triumph o’er His foes
He arose a victor from the dark domain
And He lives forever with His saints to reign
He arose He arose
Hallelujah Christ arose
Vainly they watch His bed Jesus my Savior
Vainly they seal the dead Jesus my Lord
Death cannot keep his prey Jesus my Savior
He tore the bars away Jesus my Lord
Christ the Lord is risen today alleluia
Sons of men and angels say alleluia
Raise your joys and triumphs high alleluia
Sing ye heavens and earth reply alleluia
Lives again our glorious King alleluia
Where O death is now thy sting alleluia
Once he died our souls to save alleluia
Where’s thy victory boasting grave alleluia
Love’s redeeming work is done alleluia
Fought the fight the battle won alleluia
Death in vain forbids Him rise alleluia
Christ hath opened paradise alleluia
Soar we now where Christ has led alleluia
Following our exalted Head alleluia
Made like Him like Him we rise alleluia
Ours the cross the grave the skies alleluia

I have included the lyrics so you may also sing along!  Have a blessed Easter Sunday and live life fully.

He is Risen!
He is Risen Indeed!

    Glad to hear your congregation did the car church service. Our preacher was under a cover as the rain poured and the thunder rumbled – as he tried to conduct the church service. Preachers are extraordinary people. Loved the piano player – great song “Low In The Grave He Lay.” Nice post Faye on a snowy Easter day in your area. Thanks for sharing.
