Easter



EASTER.

"Christ the Lord is risen to-day,"
Sons of men and angels say.
Raise your joys and triumphs high;
Sing, ye heavens, and earth reply.
"_Christ the Lord is risen to-day_." C. WESLEY.

Yes, He is risen who is the First and Last;
Who was and is; who liveth and was dead;
Beyond the reach of death He now has passed,
Of the one glorious Church the glorious Head.
_He is Risen_. H. BONAR.

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.
_An Easter Carol_. PH. BROOKS.

Rise, heart! thy Lord is risen. Sing His praise
Without delays
Who takes thee by the hand, that thou likewise
With Him mayst rise--
That as His death calcined thee to dust,
His life may make thee gold, and much more just.
_Easter_. G. HERBERT.

Spring bursts to-day,
For Christ is risen and all the earth's at play.
_An Easter Carol_. C.G. ROSSETTI.
