Let the whole world join the happy lay, Let the hills and vales break forth in singing, Christ, the Lord of Life, is ris’n today.
The stars shall fade away, the sun himself Grow dim with age, and Nature sink in years; But thou shalt flourish in immortal youth, Unhurt amid the war of elements, The wreck of matter, and the crush of worlds.
H. P. Liddon
The resurrection asserts a truth which is by no means always written legibly for all men on the face of nature. It tells us that the spiritual is higher than the material; that in this universe spirit counts for more than matter.
S. D. Gordon
Easter spells out beauty, the rare beauty of new life.
Saint John of Damascus
Now let the heavens be joyful,
Let earth her song begin:
Let the round world keep triumph,
And all that is therein;
Invisible and visible,
Their notes let all things blend,
For Christ the Lord is risen
Our joy that hath no end.
Earth’s saddest day and gladdest day were just three days apart!
Robert Mowry Bell
Could life so end, half told; its school so fail?
Soul, soul, there is a sequel to thy tale!
