Hosea 6:1  Come, and let us return unto the Lord: for he hath torn, and he will heal us; he hath smitten, and he will bind us up.
Hosea 6:2  After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight.
Joel 2:23a  Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the Lord your God:
Job 19:25a  I know that my redeemer liveth.
I Cor. 15:20  For now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the first-fruits of them that sleep.
Jesu, King of Gentleness,
Do Thou Thyself our hearts possess,
That we may give Thee all our days
The tribute of our grateful praise.

O Lord of all, with us abide,
In this our joyful Eastertide;
From every weapon death can wield,
Thine own redeemed for ever shield.

All praise be Thine, O risen Lord,
From death to endless life restored:
All praise to God the Father be,
And Holy Ghost eternally. Amen.
