We come to Easter morning with joy and gladness, and with a great sense of triumph filling our hearts…. This morning in our hearts there is the assurance that winter is over and gone, and the time of the singing of birds is come. The storm has spent itself, the great Master Mariner is triumphant, and the Ark rides upon the waves of a sunlit sea. Egypt is behind, the exodus is accomplished. Death is abolished, life and incorporation are brought to light.
