Alleluia! He is Risen!

The foe in triumph shouted when Christ lay in the tomb;
But lo, he now is routed, his boast is turned to gloom.
For Christ again is free; In glorious victory
He who is strong to save has triumphed o'er the grave.

(Paul Gerhardt, transl. by John Kelly)
Dear readers, God grant you His joy in the feast of His Son's resurrection, now and always!
"Oh sing to the Lord a new song;
sing to the Lord, all the earth!" Psalm 96
btw, a friend asked what all the connections are between the Red Sea and Easter (besides Baptism). "And why did the Early Church associate the Red Sea Crossing with the Resurrection of Jesus?" Since we're at that part of Exodus in TDP, I thought I'd throw his question out to you readers.
