Jesus my Savior arose from the dead! He purchased my pardon and did what He said The grave could not hold him, His power prevailed The devil tried hard, but he certainly failed Because of the work that my Savior has done Redemption's completed, the battle is won He's preparing a place at His table for me For once I was blind, but now I can see I'm thrilled to belong to this family of God Where sinners repent and the angels applaud If there was not an Easter, a Cross and a Grave The world would not know of The One who can save I rejoice in the fact that the price has been paid I never need doubt or be sad or afraid For Christ gave His all when He died on the tree And when He arose, He set people free So I'm living by faith in the joy of the Lord God's wonderful peace is an added reward The tomb has been conquered, the stone's rolled away The Savior now dwells in His vessels of clay In all of earth's history, there never has been A Savior like Jesus who saves us from sin Who calls us to love Him and serve Him today For He is The Truth and The Life and The Way ©Jim Lake Used With Permission All Rights Reserved By Author Website Mail

Early on Sunday morning, as the new day was dawning, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went out to visit the tomb. Suddenly there was a great earthquake! For the angel of the Lord came down from heaven, rolled aside the stone, and sat on it. His face shone like lightning, and his clothing was white as snow. The guards shook with fear when they saw him and fell into a deep faint.

Then the angel spoke to the women. "Don't be afraid!" he said. "I know you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He isn't here! He is risen from the dead, just as He said would happen. Come see where His body was lying. And now go quickly and tell His disciples that He has risen from the dead, and He is going ahead of you to Galilee. You will see Him there. Remember what I have told you."
