I know that Easter was yesterday, but humor me.
When I was growing up, my absolute favorite hymn was the Easter hymn, Up from the Grave He Arose. Here is a link to the lyrics, in case you aren't familiar with it.
And here is the most adorable video you've ever seen.
I've always been a talker. I know everyone is shocked to hear that. When I was a wee one on car trips with Daddy, I was rarely quiet. We would go through the list of normal sing-along songs and occasionally I would request something a little different. On one particular occasion, I requested that we sing the Great Heroes song. Daddy was puzzled.
Moi: You know...[singing] Up from the great heroes!
Daddy: Ohhhh. Up from the grave He arose...
[We continue to sing the song and then sit in silence for a bit.]
Moi: Did Jesus get wet?
Daddy: Get wet? I don't think I know what you mean.
Moi: You know...when the saints rained. ["And He lives forever with His saints to reign..."]
I also was very concerned as to whether or not Jesus had a pillow when he was in the tomb. I didn't want Jesus to be uncomfortable.
Wasn't I precious? The correct answer is "yes."
