Happy Easter!


Christ, the Lord, is risen today, Alleluia!
Sons of men and angels say, Alleluia!
Raise your joys and triumphs high, Alleluia!
Sing, ye heavens, and earth, reply, Alleluia!

Love’s redeeming work is done, Alleluia!
Fought the fight, the battle won, Alleluia!
Lo! the Sun’s eclipse is over, Alleluia!
Lo! He sets in blood no more, Alleluia!

Vain the stone, the watch, the seal, Alleluia!
Christ hath burst the gates of hell, Alleluia!
Death in vain forbids His rise, Alleluia!
Christ hath opened paradise, Alleluia!

Lives again our glorious King, Alleluia!
Where, O death, is now thy sting? Alleluia!
Once He died our souls to save, Alleluia!
Where thy victory, O grave? Alleluia!

~Charles Wesley, 1739

I won’t be baking empty tomb rolls, an Easter tradition started by Amber, but I thought I would share this recipe here again today. Empty tomb rolls are made by wrapping a large marshmallow in Pillsbury Crescent Roll dough – I leave 2 ‘triangles’ of dough together to form a large rectangle for wrapping each marshmallow. Bake according to instructions on can. When they come out of the oven the marshmallow has melted away leaving an empty cavity. Lightly glaze if desired.

  1. I’m going to be going to bed singing that hymn! What a marvelous day Resurrection Sunday is!!! “Amazing love, how can it be, that Thou my God shouldst die for me!!” Thank you for sharing the Empty Tomb roll idea. I’d never seen it before and it is wonderful! Blessings!
