Easter Sunday

Today we'll be heading over to our friend's house in our ward where we'll munch on cheese and crackers with their kids throughout Conference until we all sit down to a traditional Easter Sunday dinner of Ham and all of the fixings.

I wanted to share with you one of my favorite songs.  It's called "This is The Christ," and was penned by Pres. James E. Faust, with music added by a Mr. Michael Moody in 1995.  

I've never been a huge fan of music videos, or music slideshows.  However, I'm adding this video because I feel the quality of the music is best in this version.  I'm also putting the lyrics on here.  Please read them along with the music.  For me, this is a powerful experience.  I will not apologize for being too personal, because today, I want to be.  

Happy Easter.

1. They heard His voice, a voice so mild.
It pierced them through and made their souls to quake.
They saw Him come, a man in white,
The Savior, who had suffered for their sake.
They felt the wounds in hands and side,
And each could testify:
This is the Christ.
This is the Christ, the holy Son of God,
Our Savior, Lord, Redeemer of mankind.
This is the Christ, the Healer of our souls,
Who ransomed us with love divine.
2. I read His words, the words He prayed
While bearing sorrow in Gethsemane.
I feel His love, the price He paid.
How many drops of blood were spilled for me?
With Saints of old in joyful cry
I too can testify:
