Jesus is alive and well
and reigns forevermore;
our blessed Lord and Savior
the redeemer we adore!

Jesus paid the debt we owed
on an old rugged tree,
long ago and far away
on a mount called Calvary.

A horrific sight it was
for those who followed Him…
the atmosphere was somber
and the outcome appeared grim.

He was crucified in agony
with the purpose of saving man,
and ascended into heaven to
fulfill God’s perfect plan!

When they found His empty tomb,
it was a glorious discovery!
the devil lost the battle
and God won the victory.

We still celebrate that day
with our hearts in accord,
remembering with gratitude,
the resurrection of our Lord!


‘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 has been raised from the dead just as He said would happen. Come, see where His body was lying. Now go quickly and tell his disciples He has been raised from the dead.”
[Matthew 28:5-7]
