EASTER SATURDAY-DAY 7 OF OCTAVE

REJOICE IN THE LORD!  AGAIN I SAY REJOICE! ALLELUIA!  (Phil 4:4)

HYMN- Meter 84 84 7

Be joyful, Mary, heav’nly queen, alleluia:  Your Son who died was living seen, Alleluia, rejoice, rejoice, O Mary.

The Son you bore by heaven’s grace, alleluia:  Did all our guilt and sin efface, Alleluia, rejoice, rejoice, O Mary.

The Lord has risen from the dead, alleluia:   He rose in glory as he said, Alleluia, rejoice, rejoice, O Mary

O pray to God, O Virgin fair, alleluia: That he our souls to heaven bear, Alleluia, rejoice, rejoice, O Mary. 

Do not weep. The lion of the tribe of Judah, the root of David, has triumphed, Alleluia! (RV 5:5)

The grief of the Mother at cross and tomb is transformed into joy.  Sprung from the root of David, Mary’s risen Son leads the feeble, the frightened, the blind, the deaf, and the lame home to the glory of that kingdom where she reigns as queen.
