Christ Is Risen!

He is risen indeed!

"People rejoice, all nations listen:

Christ God is risen! Let us rejoice!

Dance all ye stars and sing all ye mountains:

Christ God is risen! Let us rejoice!

Whisper ye woods and blow all ye winds:

Christ God is risen! Let us rejoice!

O seas proclaim and roar all ye beasts:

Christ God is risen! Let us rejoice!

Buzz all ye bees and sing all ye birds:

Christ God is risen! Let us rejoice!

O little lambs rejoice and be merry:

Christ God is risen! Let us rejoice!

Nightengales joyous, lending your song:

Christ God is risen! Let us rejoice!

Ring, O ye bells, let everyone hear:

Christ God is risen! Let us rejoice!

All angels join us, singing this song:

Christ God is risen! Let us rejoice!

Come down ye heavens, draw near the earth:

Christ God is risen! Let us rejoice!

Glory to Thee, God Almighty!

Christ God is risen! Let us rejoice!

Glory to Thee, God Almighty!

Christ God is risen! Let us rejoice!"

For some reason the sound cuts out toward the end, but they all say "Christ is Risen, He is Risen Indeed!" And the little girl in front is jumping for joy. The first time I saw this was when my sister sent it to me in June of last year. I cried as I watched it, even though I couldn't understand the language. The joy of Christ's resurrection knows no language barriers. Happy Easter, everyone!

Sister,

I'm so glad you posted this on your blog! I love that little girl at the end. It's like she's saying "Christ is Risen, YAY!!!"

Of course, the Orthodox Christians who made this video won't be celebrating Easter until next week. (You know, "Greek Easter.")

Christ is Risen!

I'm a little late here, and it's past Easter now, but I'm thankful daily for Christ's death and resurrection! Thankful daily for His love. Thankful daily for His patience. Thankful daily for His mercy. Thankful daily for His grace. Thankful daily...
