As we stood around the graveside, in this Easter week, it seemed so appropriate that we sang
Low in the grave He lay-Jesus my Saviour!
Waiting the coming day-Jesus my Lord!
Up from the grace He arose,
With a mighty triumph o'er His foes;
He arose a victor from the dark domain,
And He lives for ever with His saints to reign!
He arose! He arose!
Hallelujah! Christ arose!
Vainly they watch His bed-Jesus, my Saviour!
Vainly they seal the dead-Jesus, my Lord!
Death cannot keep his prey-Jesus, my Saviour!
He tore the bars away-Jesus, my Lord!
I was so struck by the hope from a risen Saviour who has prayed that His people see His glory.
May we all also make sure that we are ready for our last day on earth and able to say that the Lord Jesus is our Saviour.
