Since I was a little girl I can remember singing this Easter hymn every year around or on Easter Sunday. It was written by Robert Lowery. I quote the first verse of this precious hymn of hope.
"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!"
Saturday afternoon, my grand daughter and I went to "The Songs and Scenes of Easter" at a large church here in town. Once again the choir and actors gave a very moving program of the Easter story, reminding us all the true Easter story, one of great love, sacrifice & grace to all who believe.
I'd like to post the chorus of another great old hymn written in the 1930's. "Living He loved me; Dying He saved me; Buried He carried my sins far away; Rising He justified freely forever; one day He's coming -oh glorious day !"
Have a blessed Easter Sunday......Linda
