Happy Easter Everyone

Easter is a very special time of year. Jesus Christ is risen today and families all over the world celebrate this by coming together. I hope you enjoy the little animations and the music I have for you here.

Something Which Is Known
Something which is known to have been from the beginning. This we have heard, and seen with our own eyes. Alleluia, Alleluia. The most awesome thing in the world! Jesus has risen!!

Matt 28:5-6 And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified.

Matt 28:6 He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.

Easter is a holiday when most people think of the Easter bunny, decorating eggs, dressing up in your best Sunday outfit and going to church.

Panis Angelicus: Cesar Franck 1882-1890
Cesar Franck was the organist and choirmaster of Sainte Clothilde in Paris, France. This piece is from his Mass in A and was inserted between the Sanctus and the Agnus Dei. I've been signing this wonderful piece all my life and it brings back such wonderful memories. I am singing here and arranged the piece on both my Roland D-20's. I am also the echo voice you will hear.

Easter should be more than just another holiday to a Christian. It's the Sunday set aside to recognize the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. GOD sent his WORD in the form of a child, being born to Mary the Virgin as God's only Begotten Son. He lived a very short time on earth, having been a carpenter and then God's messenger the last three years or so of his life. He was crucified, nailing all our sins to the cross, covering them with his precious blood. If we believe on him, accept his free gift of salvation, then we too will see him in all his Glory one day!

Jesus was compelled to bear his own cross, to travel to Golgotha, where they placed upon his head a crown of thorns and proclaimed him "THIS IS JESUS THE KING OF THE JEWS!". They placed him between two thieves hanging on a cross, drove nails through his hands and feet, later piercing his side to make sure he was dead. They took his garments to draw lots to see who would get them.

Mark 15:33 And when the sixth hour was come, there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour.

Mark 15:34 And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? which is, being interpreted, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? "

He was mocked and given vinegar to drink instead of water.

In The Glory Of Your Name 2000 new
What can I say. I wrote this during a time when I realized how grateful I should be for this life he has Blessed me with. Family, friends, talent, humor (sometimes and debatable in some circles :)), and so many other things.

John 19:28 After this, Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, saith, I thirst.

John 19:30 When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.

Mark 15:38 And the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom.

Mark15:39 And when the centurion, which stood over against him, saw that he so cried out, and gave up the ghost, he said, Truly this man was the Son of God.

Mark 16:1 And when the sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the [mother] of James, and Salome, had bought sweet spices, that they might come and anoint him.

Mark 16:2 And very early in the morning the first [day] of the week, they came unto the sepulchre at the rising of the sun.

Mark 16:3 And they said among themselves, Who shall roll us away the stone from the door of the sepulchre?

Mark 16:4 And when they looked, they saw that the stone was rolled away: for it was very great.

Mark 16:5 And entering into the sepulchre, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, clothed in a long white garment; and they were affrighted.

Mark 16:6 And he saith unto them, Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him.

Let's have some fun! After Easter Mass, when I was growing up, there was a wonderful tradition of the entire family getting together, telling jokes, and enjoying a great meal. Click on the Easter Bunny for a fun song, then click on the eggs for some corny Easter jokes! And below that is a recipe for a baked ham. Enjoy!
