The Lord Jesus was born under the law and perfectly fulfilled it. He endured most grievous torments in his soul and most painful sufferings in his body; he was crucified, died, and was buried; he remained under the power of death, yet his body did not undergo decay; and he arose from the dead on the third day with the same body in which he had suffered. In this body he ascended into heaven, where he sits at the right hand of his Father, making intercession, and he shall return to judge men and angels at the end of the age. The Lord Jesus, by his perfect obedience and sacrifice of himself—which he through the eternal Spirit once offered up to God—has fully satisfied the justice of his Father. He purchased not only reconciliation but also an everlasting inheritance in the kingdom of heaven for all whom the Father has given to him. (Westminster Confession of Faith, Ch. 8)
Christ hath risen! Hallelujah! Blessed morn of life and light! Lo, the grave is rent asunder,
Death is conquered through His might.
Christ is risen! Hallelujah! Gladness fills the world today;
From the tomb that could not hold Him, See, the stone is rolled away!
Christ hath risen! Hallelujah! Friends of Jesus, dry your tears;
Through the veil of gloom and darkness, Lo, the Son of God appears!
Christ hath risen! Hallelujah! He hath risen, as He said; He is now the King of glory, And our great exalted Head. (Fanny Crosby)
