That Easter morn a grave that burst
Proclaimed to man that “Last and First”
Had ris’n again
And conquered pain.
This morn renews for us that day
When Jesus cast the bonds away,
Took living breath
And conquered death.
Thus we in gratitude recall
And give our love and pledge our all,
Shed grateful tear
And conquer fear.
Marion D. Hanks
One of my favorite hymns and one appropriate on this Easter Morn. Of course, I played it for prelude and we also sang it as one of the hymns in Sacrament Meeting.
Jennifer and her family were coming to dinner, but they got delayed in their travels. So, we fed the sister missionaries and just as they were about to leave, Jennifer’s family showed up.
After they ate dinner, it was so nice outside, we decided to go to Hill Cumorah for a walk.
We got up to the top of the hill and Texas found the RAMEUMPTUM! (Okay, not really, but it was fun pretending.)
By the time we got home I was ready to call it a day. It was a lovely ending to this sacred day.
