It is what today, and every Sunday, honors and remembers – the risen Savior and His conquering power over sin and death. (See Mark chapter 16 to read of the risen Savior.)
Today, we are home, worshiping and partaking of the Lord’s Supper together with our family. We are worshiping through video with others of the Lord’s church and encouraging one another through songs, hymns, and spiritual songs. Reading and praying together, listening to God’s word and godly men speak about God’s word, from God’s word. (I Thessalonians 5:11, Colossians 3:16-17, Acts 2:42,
“Easter” comes once a year but the blessings of that day He arose from the grave come daily to His children, those who believe in Him.
Some days, those blessings are easier to see than others but they are there daily and are new every morning (Lamentations 3:23). Great is Thy faithfulness and I am so thankful for that.
This hymn is one that we often sing before taking communion each Sunday and one I remember dearly from my home congregations where I grew up. It is clear that Jesus conquered sin and death and brought life when he rose from the grave.
Up From The Grave He Arose
words & music: Robert Lowry (1874)
1 Low in the grave he lay, Jesus my Savior,
waiting the coming day, 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!
2 Vainly they watch his bed, Jesus my Savior,
vainly they seal the dead, Jesus my Lord! [Refrain]
3 Death cannot keep its prey, Jesus my Savior;
he tore the bars away, Jesus my Lord! [Refrain]
