Easter Blessings!


Tomb, thou shalt not hold Him longer;

Death is strong, but Life is stronger;

Stronger than the dark, the light;

Stronger than the wrong, the right;

Faith and Hope triumphant say

Christ will rise on Easter Day.

—Phillips Brooks, "An Easter Carol"

Awake, thou wintry earth -
Fling off thy sadness!
Fair vernal flowers, laugh forth
Your ancient gladness!
—Thomas Blackburn, "An Easter Hymn"

~•~•~•~•~

Our Lord has written
the promise of the resurrection not in books alone, but in every leaf in springtime. —Martin Luther

~•~•~•~•~

Loveliest of trees, the cherry now
Is hung with bloom along the bough,

And stands about the woodland ride

Wearing white for Eastertide.

—A. E. Housman
