Sunday Reflections: Beautiful Savior Our Easter Gift
From the darkness of Golgotha on Good Friday, to the miraculous triumph of Resurrection Sunday, we celebrate with you the gift of Easter, the gift of hope and everlasting peace brought to each of us through the Atonement and Resurrection of our Beautiful Savior Jesus Christ.
Fair is the sunshine,
Fairer the moonlight
And all the stars in heav’n above;
Jesus shines brighter,
Jesus shines purer
And brings to all the world his love.
When the sting of death takes a loved one from us – such as it did just a few days ago as my mother’s youngest sister Cheryl Walton finished her mortal journey much too young – we find solace in the Balm of Gilead.
Fair are the meadows,
Fairer the woodlands,
Robed in the flowers of blooming spring;
Jesus is fairer,
Jesus is purer.
He makes the sorrowing spirit sing.
When life gets dark and dreary, when your trials and challenges seem too much to bear, rest assured Sunday will always come because our Beautiful Savior lives!
Lord of the nations!
Son of God and Son of Man!
Thee will I honor, praise, and give glory,
Give praise and glory evermore!
Sunday Will Always Come Because Our beautiful Savior Lives!
Such thoughts have inspired one additional gift we share with you this Easter Sunday.
SUNDAY WILL COME
By Les Patterson
A gift of beautiful
Full of every promised
With richness in
Bountifully full of
When we turn our hearts
The Master’s healing
As this gift of His precious
Has already fully been
As His truth has
For you and I and all of
Because of His
Thank you for opening your hearts to our gift of faith and music. May you also be blessed to share your gifts. Special thanks to our friend Jason Tonioli for this beautiful arrangement of Beautiful Savior.
