Jesus Christ is ris'n today, Alleluia!
Our triumphant holy day, Alleluia!
Who did once upon the cross, Alleluia!
Suffer to redeem our loss. Alleluia! At 5:15 am the member of the English speaking congregation met on the top of the
Mount of Olives for Easter Sunrise.
The sun is almost visible over Jordan.
The evening haze is beginning to wear off. The sliver of silver below the furthest mountain range is the tip of the Dead Sea.
The landscape is doted with Olive trees.
Celebrating Holy Communion
and "Thine is the Glory."
Most of us were seated on the grounds which overlooked Jerusalem.
