Happy Easter!…He is risen.…He is risen indeed!
Jesus lives! The victory’s won!
Death no longer can appall me;
Jesus lives! Death’s reign is done!
From the grave Christ will recall me.
Brighter scenes will then commence;
This shall be my confidence.
— “Jesus Lives! The Victory’s Won,” The Lutheran Hymnal 201:1.
This is a beautiful flower, but there is a truth that is more beautiful: the Truth of the Word of God: The deed is done. He is risen in deed.
