Happy Easter!!

He is RISEN!!! HE is RISEN indeed!!!
I absolutely love Easter! This is what Christianity is all about! My Lord and Savior died...for US, and rose again so that we can be ETERNALLY saved!! Being raised Lutheran, this is one of my favorite hymns, also being Lutheran you know a hymn has literally 10 verses and you usually sing all 10 in church! haha I picked out my favorite verses, I think they just proclaim what I know and believe so I thought I would share.
I know that my Redeemer lives! What comfort this sweet sentence gives! He lives, he lives, who once was dead; He lives, my ever living head!
He lives triumphant from the grave; He lives eternally to save; He lives exalted, throned above; He lives to rule his Church in love.
He lives and grants me daily breath; He lives, and I shall conquer death; He lives my mansion to prepare; He lives to bring me safely there.
He lives, all glory to his name! He lives, my savior, still the same; What joy this blest assurance gives: I know that my Redeemer lives!
Have a safe and happy Easter!!

  1. Ryane... I love you... sorry I didn't call back. I may go try you right now. We sang that hymn in church today and I cried through most of it. The verses that you put were the ones we picked for part of Samuel's memorial service. I miss my sweet pumpkin soooooo much today, but I love looking down at my foot:) You are the best RyRy. We all send our love!
