Ps.118:24  This is the day which the Lord hath made: we will rejoice and be glad in it.
Romans 6:9  Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him.
Romans 6:10  For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God.
Ps.145:8  The Lord is gracious and merciful: long-suffering and of great goodness.
Ps.145:9b  And his mercy is over all his works.
I Cor.15:57  But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
All praise be thine, O risen Lord,
From death to endless life restored:
All praise to God the Father be
And Holy Ghost eternally. Amen.
