Bell Tower, London, England
Glorious Sunrise, Wrightsville Beach, NC
Clearly the Easter bells ring out,
Calmly the steeple towers
Where reverent people kneel to pray
Among the Easter flowers.
Gently the April sun spills down,
Softly the warm wind blows
And hope, long given up for dead,
A resurrection knows.
--Ruth Johnston Hulse
A bright shining star announced the birth of Christ, and the world grew dark on Black Friday, but the glorious rising Easter sun proclaims that the light of the world has dispelled the darkness and is the true Risen Son!
