And when I think, that God, His Son not sparing;
Sent Him to die, I scarce can take it in;
That on the Cross, my burden gladly bearing,
He bled and died to take away my sin.

Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, How great Thou art.
Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, How great Thou art!

I love that tune. You've reminded me of choirs singing that.

Happy Easter everyone?? He is risen indeed! I love Easter, it's better than Christmas to me.

It is the more important festival in the Christian calendar but this year Easter does seem even more special than ever. Clever Christians, borrowing the spring festivals that were already happening. I wouldn't be without a winter festival though. The Easter Hymn that sticks in my mind is:

When I survey the wond'rous Cross
On which the Prince of Glory dy'd,
My richest Gain I count but Loss,
And pour Contempt on all my Pride.

I wonder if it seems extra relevant because, as John writes "Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends." (New King James). So many have been doing just that over the last year.

Oops. Happy Easter to all.
