Alleluia! Sing to Jesus - 13

Well in case your were wondering, the Chapel of the Resurrection is still very much alive and active! I have given you no photos recently, because although Easter Sunday was on 23 March, the pupils didn't return until 16 April. However, we are celebrating Easter - and here is the lovely Paschal Candle to prove it!

Alleluia! Alleluia!
Hearts to heaven and voices raise;
Sing to God a hymn of gladness,
Sing to God a hymn of praise;
He who on the cross a victim
For the world's salvation bled,
Jesus Christ, the King of glory,
Now is risen from the dead.

Christ is risen, Christ the first-fruits
Of the holy harvest-field,
Which will all its full abundance
At his second coming yield;
Then the golden ears of harvest
Will their heads before him wave,
Ripened by his glorious sunshine
From the furrows of the grave.

Christ is risen, we are risen;
Shed upon us heavenly grace,
Rain and dew and gleams of glory
From the brightness of thy face;
So that we, with hearts in heaven,
Here on earth may fruitful be;
And by angel-hands be gathered,
And be ever, Lord, with thee.

Alleluia! Alleluia!
Glory be to God on high!
Alleluia! To the Saviour,
Who has gained the victory!
Alleluia! To the Spirit,
Fount of love and sanctity!
Alleluia! Alleluia!
To the blessed Trinity!

Have a Happy Eastertide Sunday!
