I grew up in the church singing hymns before I ever learned to read. Easter hymns were always a favorite-- right up there with Christmas carols. I remember as a child, attending our church's sunrise Easter morning services with my dad. We'd bundle up in winter coats and blankets in the dark. We'd walk behind the church through the grassy field, up on the hillside. The pastor would lead the singing...and everyone would join in. No hymn book could be read in the dark, but that didn't matter, we all knew the words. As we were singing, the orange-colored glow would begin to light up the sky. The pastor would say a prayer and a short message and then...there it was, the promise of a new day.
This particular hymn, 'Low in the Grave He Lay' is my most favorite Easter hymn. The chorus has a fun baritone part that my dad would always sing out with enthusiasm. I liked singing that part, too!

I print my tags on cardstock .
Trim tags and adhere to colored craft sticks using washi tape .
Place the stick into a mini rose plant or a bouquet of roses.
You can even tie the tag onto a single long stemmed rose...or even around a rose-scented product (think lotion, soap, candle, etc.).
Happy Easter to you!
