Colossians 3:12-14 NKJV

“Put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do. But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection.”

“Very Early Sunday Morning” Orthodox Hymn

“Very early Sunday morning
While the guards were at the scene
Jesus has risen declaring
Victory no more defeat”

“Jesus is risen in glory
Heaven and earth sang and praised
And the angel told the story
He is risen as He said”

“Resurrection is my song
Resurrection gave me life
Resurrection made me strong
Jesus, my Lord is alive”

“Mary Magdalene was looking
In the garden for her Lord
While Jesus Himself was telling
Her to go and spread the word”

“All the disciples were praying
They were really in great fear
When Mary came to them saying
He is risen He is not here”


“While they gathered in the room
Jesus Christ Himself appeared
Said My peace I gave to you
And My peace with you I leave”

“But Thomas did not believe
What the disciples had seen
So Jesus again appeared
Showed Him the place of the spear”


“Tell the Marys no more mourning
Among the dead do not seek
For Jesus Our Lord is living
Giving power to the weak”

“Jesus My victorious Lord
Conquered the powers of Hades
And the thorns of death He broke
My salvation He declared”


“The heavenly hosts were singing
Welcoming our glorious Lord
And the joy is overwhelming
He opened the doors of hope”
