Hosanna! Hallelujah! Hosanna in the highest!
Our joy is full this Easter season, for we believe and celebrate the victory of Jesus the Son of God who says,
I am the resurrection and the life.
Those who believe in me, even though they die,
26 and everyone who lives and believes in me
will never die. (John 11:25 NRSV)
if anyone is in Christ,
there is a new creation:
everything old has passed away;
see, everything has become new!
18 All this is from God,
who reconciled us to himself through Christ,
and has given us the ministry of reconciliation. (2 Corinthians 5:17 NRSV)
Christ is risen. He is risen, indeed!
Rejoice, for the reign of Christ has begun! He is risen. Alleluia!
