I love all the Easter hymns but my favorite is...
This hymn always brings me back to my childhood
singing this song in church
on Easter morning.
We had two services, a Sunrise Service, followed by breakfast
and then our regular morning service.
AND we went to BOTH services...
with NO complaining.
This hymn starts out slow with the verses and then picks up speed
with the joyful refrain and chorus:
Lo in the grave He lay,
Jesus, my Savior!
Waiting the coming day,
Jesus, my Lord!
