That great menacing Easter Island face.
Now let the heavens be joyful, Let earth her song begin: Let the round world keep triumph, And all that is therein;
Invisible and visible, Their notes let all things blend, For Christ the Lord is risen Our joy that hath no end.

– George Horace Lorimer
Christianity begins where religion ends…with the resurrection
It is the hour to rend thy chains, The blossom time of souls.
Twas Easter-Sunday. The full-blossomed trees
Filled all the air with fragrance and with joy.
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Spanish Student
