Easter Reflections: Easter Gleams

Easter Gleams

Let us no longer call the grave
A cold, dark place;
For He whose grace
Brought Him to earth our souls to save
Hath laid His head
Among the dead,
And light into the tomb hath shed.

Let us no longer fear to die;
For He once slain,
Who rose again,
And hath ascended up on high,
With mighty blow
Hath felled the foe,
And in His dying laid death low.

Mourn we our loved and lost no more,
They are not dead;
With Christ their head
They reign in glory on that shore
Beyond the skies,
Where nothing dies,
And songs of triumph ever rise!

-Robert Marshall Offord
