The purpose of this Easter card is to celebrate Christ’s triumph over death. It bears a quotation from the Gospel according to St. Matthew, chapter 28, verse 20, and the first verse of the hymn “He Is Risen” set over a background of white tree blossoms against a blue sky in late spring. We do not often get blue skies over Easter here, in the North-East of England. They are more likely to be grey, so I took advantage of a glorious spring day in early April to take this sky shot.This beautiful and uplifting hymn is interdenominational and will be known to many.
Text: Cecil Frances Alexander (1818-1895)
Music: Joachim Neander (1650-1680)
Please watch this video by Jason Crabb, “Please Forgive Me”, which deals with The Crucifixion and which was brought to my attention by fellow RedBubble artist, Rapture777:-
We need to keep our minds focussed on the atoning sacrifice of Our Beloved Saviour, not just at Easter, but every hour of every day.
