Let us rejoice and be glad!
Christ is risen from the dead,
trampling down death by death,
and upon those in the tombs
Christ is risen indeed!
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
My toddler Easters when she wakes up crying and seeks my early-morning arms.
My infant daughter Easters when she utters "Ma-Ma" as her greeting for the first time.
I Easter when I behold my sleeping beloved and smile.
The world Easters every time it loves without fetter.
