I believe that I shall look upon the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living! Wait for the LORD; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the LORD! (Psalm 27:13-14 ESV)
Hymn 354:6,7 Like the Golden Sun Ascending
Satan’s arrows all lie broken
Death and hell have met their doom;
Christ, Thy rising is the token:
Thou hast triumphed o’er the tomb.
Thou hast buried all my woe,
And my cup doth overflow;
By Thy resurrection glorious
I shall wave my palms victorious.
As the Son of God I know Thee,
For I see Thy sovereign power;
Sin and death shall not overthrow me
Even in my dying hour;
For Thy resurrection is
Surety for my heavenly bliss,
And my baptism a reflection
Of Thy death and resurrection.
Heavenly Father, through Your Son’s resurrection, You guarantee my own resurrection from the dead and the fulfillment of Jesus’ promise to prepare a place for me in Heaven. Forgive me all my sins and strengthen my faith to trust in Your promises. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
