"This is the day the Lord hath made."
Never had the sun risen so gloriously,
Nor was the earth so joyful.
The grass and flowers skip with glee,
And tall redwoods sway and touch
and whisper, "Jesus our Love is risen."
The snow white lambs frolic and jump,
Because the Lamb who was slain is alive.
"Now no more to die." He is alive, alive.
The dogs bark, the wolves howl,
The cattle low, the birds sing and
The lions roar to glorify the
"Lion of Judah" risen triumphantly this day.
Because of this day I am baptized in water,
I am steeped and submerged in Jesus' Love.
I, too, am risen in the baptism of the Holy Spirit.
The searing flame of Love cauterizes
Sin, anger, hatred and every meanness.
He is risen and I am aflame
With His Love, forever and ever and ever.
"Let us be glad and rejoice therein."
