..."and a highway shall be there, and it shall be called the way of holiness; evil minded people shall not travel on it, but it shall be for those wayfarers who are traveling toward God. (Isaiah 35:8, adapted)

Now is Christ Risen From the Dead! Easter Anthem 236

The Lord is ris’n indeed! Hallelujah!

Now is Christ risen from the dead,

And become the first-fruits of them that slept.

Hallelujah, and did He rise? did He rise?

Hear it ye nations! hear it, Oh ye dead!

He rose, He burst the bars of death

And triumphed o’er the grave.

Then I rose, then first humanity

Triumphant passed the crystal ports of light

And seized eternal youth.

Man, all immortal hail,

Hail heaven, all lavish of strange gifts to man,

Thine’s all the glory,

Man’s the boundless bliss.
this is Sacred Harp Easter Anthem 236

Blessed Easter to YOU!
