Psalm 57: v8
Awake up, my glory; awake,
lute and harp:
I myself will awake early.

Psalm 118: v24
This is the day which the LORD hath made;
we will rejoice and be glad in it

Corinthians 1: vv20-22
But now is Christ risen from the dead, a
nd become the firstfruits of them that slept.
For since by man came death,
by man came also the resurrection of the dead.
For as in Adam all die,
even so in Christ shall all be made alive.

Charles Wesley
Christ the Lord is risen today,
Sons of men and angels say'
Raise your joys and triumphs high'
Sing ye heav'ns, and earth, reply.

Vain the stone, the watch, the seal,
Christ has burst the gates of hell,
Death in vain forbids his rise,
Christ hath opened Paradise. Amen
