Victory Remains with Love

"O break, o break hard heart of mine!
My weak self-love and guilty pride
His Pilate and His Judas were.

Jesus our Lord is crucified.

O love of God, o sin of man,
In this dread act your strength was tried.
And victory remains with LOVE!
Jesus our Lord is crucified."

(from "O Come and Mourn with Me Awhile," lyrics originally by Frederick Faber)

Happy Easter to all of you! May you rejoice today that the victory is with the love of God, triumphant over all of our sin.

He is risen!
