And the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?
Easter is definitely one of my favorite days of the year. I love the music, the weather, and the joy that permeates the holiday. The old has become new! And the darkness of Good Friday has been replaced with irrepressible joy. Jesus has conquered death. Can you imagine the disciples seeing the unbelievable? Jesus resurrected as He promised. He has conquered death and my heart. He is Risen! He is Risen, indeed!
1. Low in the grave he lay, Jesus my Savior,
waiting the coming day, Jesus my Lord!
2. Vainly they watch his bed, Jesus my Savior,
vainly they seal the dead, Jesus my Lord!
3. Death cannot keep its prey, Jesus my Savior;
he tore the bars away, Jesus my Lord!
Up from the grave he arose;
with a mighty triumph o’er his foes;
he arose a victor from the dark domain,
and he lives forever, with his saints to reign.
He arose! He arose! Hallelujah! Christ arose!
