He is risen!

I'm so grateful for the Savior. That he suffered and died on the cross so that I might return to live with Him and my Heavenly Father again. 

He is risen! He is risen! 
Tell it out with joyful voice. 
He had burst his three days' prison; 
Let the whole wide earth rejoice.
Death is conquered; man is free. 
Christ has won the victory. 

Come with high and holy humming; 
Chant our Lord's triumphant lay.
Not one darksome cloud is dimming
Yonder glorious morning ray, 
Breaking o'er the purple east, 
Symbol of our Easter feast.

He is risen! He is risen! 
He hath opened heaven's gate.
We are free from sin's dark prison, 
Risen to a holier state. 
And a brighter Easter beam
On our longing eyes shall stream.
