Easter is Breaking

A new hymn text for Resurrection Sunday

Easter breaks. Our faith is stirring.
Hope awakens with the dawn.
Fear of death that held us hostage
bows to Truth that bids us on.
We’ve been vaccinated fully
from the dread of dark despair.
We can confidently worship
One whose Spirit fills the air.

Easter breaks. A new day beckons.
We’ve no cause to mask our joy.
Christ is risen! Hallelujah!
Christ has leveled Satan’s ploy.
We’re not prisoners any longer.
Though our eyes may close in death,
through Christ’s resurrection power
we will claim eternal breath.

Easter breaks. Our world is broken.
Yet Christ’s promise still is heard.
He will never, ever, leave us.
Of His Spirit we’re assured.
Peace for which we long as Christians,
will be given in God’s time.
And when plagued by global chaos,
we can trust God’s grand design.
