Tomb,thou shalt not hold Him Longer;
Death is strong,but Life is Stronger;
Stronger than the dark,the light;
Stronger than the wrong,the right;
Faith and Hope triumphant say
Christ will rise on Easter Day
-Philips Brooks,An Easter Carol
Come,ye saints,look here and wonder,
See the place where Jesus lay;
He has borne our sins away;
Yes,the Lord has risen today.
One the third morning he arose.
Bright with victory o'er his foes.
Sing we lauding,
- From the Latin of 12TH Century
"Christ the Lord is risen today,"
Sons of the men and angels says.
Raise your joys and triumphs high;
Sing,ye heavens.and earth reply.
In the bonds of Death He lay
Who for our offence was slain;
But the Lord is risen today,
Christ hath brought us life again,
Wherefore let us all rejoice,
Singing loud,with cheerful voice,
