As Bright Sunday is on the horizon, I think to an Easter hymn that the Rev. Dr. Alan Harvey would sometimes work into this Sunday after Easter – In the Bulb There is a Flower.
This wonderful hymn helps us to float along with images from nature of newness and life – and then it treats us to the best gift from God:
In our death, a resurrection and at last a victory, unrevealed until its season, something God alone can see.
Creator God, we praise you for the beauty and wonder of the world around us here and now. And we thank you that our end will truly be our beginning. Thank your for life and life eternal, in Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. Amen.
