Why seek ye the living among the dead? He is not here; but is risen. - St. Luke xxiv. v. 5, 6.
Death hath no more dominion over Him, death is swallowed up in victory. - Romans vi. v. 9.
O death, where is thy sting? O grave where is thy victory? the sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.
But thanks be to God which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. - 1 Cor. xv. vv. 55, 56,57.
This is the day which the Lord hath made, we will rejoice and be glad in it. - Psalm cxviii, v. 24.
