The Lord is risen! Alleulia! Alleulia!
He is risen indeed! Alleluia! Alleluia!

Last night at the Easter Vigil Mass...

"By Your Kingly Power O Risen Lord is the next hymn," said Gemma-Rose, her eyes shining. "That's our favourite Easter hymn!" 

She couldn't stop smiling at me. None of us could stop smiling, even when we were singing. We opened our mouths and sang very loudly. It didn't matter that half our family was sitting at the front of the church with the choir, and half was sitting in the pews. We all looked towards each other and we GRINNED! This hymn, for us, means Easter! 

This morning, like every other Easter Sunday that we can remember, everyone sang By Your Kingly Power O Risen Lord, and I got out the video camera and recorded it. (We have years and years worth of this hymn!)

You should see the Easter smiles on this video. They grow wider and wider as the singing progresses. If you don't enjoy the singing, you might enjoy the smiles!

Happy Easter from the Elvises!

    1. Mary,

      Thank you for watching! Everyone had great fun singing while I operated the camera. I didn't mention what I was doing while my family was singing. I was dancing about and being silly from my position behind the camera. Easter is a wonderful time for smiles!
