Happy Easter all

1 In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Mag’dalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre.

2 And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it.

3 His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow:

4 and for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men.

5 And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified.

6 He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.

7 And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and, behold, he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you.

8 And they departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear and great joy; and did run to bring his disciples word.

9 And as they went to tell his disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, All hail. And they came and held him by the feet, and worshipped him.

10 Then said Jesus unto them, Be not afraid: go tell my brethren that they go into Galilee, and there shall they see me.

    One of my favorite Easter hymns: they played it at our mother’s funeral.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E2Ny7B4KjQQ

    Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

    The strife is o’er, the battle done,
    the victory of life is won;
    the song of triumph has begun.
    Alleluia!

    The powers of death have done their worst,
    but Christ their legions hath dispersed:
    let shout of holy joy outburst.
    Alleluia!

    The three sad days are quickly sped,
    He rises glorious from the dead:
    all glory to our risen Head!
    Alleluia!

    He closed the yawning gates of hell,
    the bars from heaven’s high portals fell;
    let hymns of praise His triumphs tell!
    Alleluia!

    Lord! by the stripes which wounded thee,
    from death’s dread sting thy servants free,
    that we may live and sing to thee.

    Alleluia! Alleluia, alleluia!
