The One with Easter

Easter has always been my favorite holiday.  I could list a million reasons why.  And this year I found even another reason.  The Hymns.  I love singing Easter Hymns in church.  I think my favorite is He Is Risen!
He is risen! He is risen!
Tell it out with joyful voice.
He has 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 hymning;
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.
