Dear all, today we decided to present you The Best Collection of Easter Celebration Short Songs 2016 to make you feel the magic and excitement of the upcoming joyful celebration.
Easter is the biggest celebration for Orthodox Christians, the feast of all feasts. The resurrection of Jesus Christ is the greatest event in the history of mankind.
In the Christian religion Easter celebrates the resurrection of Jesus Christ on the third day after being crucified and buried. The empty tomb was seen by myrrh-bearing women who visited the tomb. Jesus appeared to Mary Magdalene and the apostles.
1. Go ahead, drive the nails in My hands,
Laugh at me where you stand.
Go ahead, and bury Me,
But very soon, I will be free!
Cause I’ll rise again; ain’t no power on earth can keep Me down!
Yes, I’ll rise again, death can’t keep Me in the ground.
2. And I will rise when He calls my name
No more sorrow, no more pain
I will rise on eagles’ wings
Before my God fall on my knees
And rise, I will rise
3. Savior, He can move the mountains,
My God is mighty to save, He is mighty to save
Forever, author of Salvation
He rose and conquered the grave,
Jesus conquered the grave.
4. I’m forgiven because You were forsaken
I’m accepted, You were condemned
I’m alive and well, Your spirit is within me
Because You died and rose again
5. There in the tomb, His body lay,
Light of the World by darkness slain.
Then bursting forth in glorious day,
Up from the grave He rose again
6. Hear the bells ringing,
they’re singing that you can be born-again!
And then, as death gives way to victory,
I’ll see the lights of glory and I’ll know He reigns.
Easter gives us many Unforgettable moments! On the night of the solemn worship of Christ, our Savior, The temple is decorated, everything is flooded with light. The Great Litany begins. And after it, like the sound of festive bells we hear the chants of the Paschal canon: "The Day of Christ's Resurrection has come..."
The announcement of the Resurrection brings joy and peace in our hearts, the procession circles the church, the priest gives a candle from which all the people present at the litany light up their own candles that carry them to their homes. The ritual is similar to that which takes place in Jerusalem, at the temple of the Resurrection where people witness the descent of the Holy Fire.
The preparations for the festival begin 10 weeks before Easter, in which the faithful Christians prepare for the triumph of the spirit over the flesh - the victory of Jesus Christ over death. The Week from Palm Sunday to Easter is particularly important in the Orthodox holiday cycle and it is called the "passion week" meaning the suffering of Christ. It is also called Great week. These are the last days of the earthly life of Jesus. The week after the great day is called The week Of Light because the Resurrection of Christ brings enlightenment to all mankind.
Traditionally during the holidays people visit their parents and relatives, bringing them Easter cakes and painted eggs to show love and respect. Red eggs symbolize the blood of Christ. Between Easter and Pentecost people continue to greet each other with the greeting "Christ is Risen".
For centuries the Christian tradition for the holiday has been to decorate the festive table with colored eggs. On the night after Easter there happens an egg fight, and some people receive Communion at Easter. The person to whom belongs the winner egg will be healthy during the year.
