Easter Part 2: Praise the mount, I’m fixed upon it, mount of thy redeeming love

For Christians today is Good Friday, the time when we mark the death of Christ in anticipation of Easter Sunday, the day we celebrate his resurrection. It is the holiest day in Christianity.

In 2002, Jim Hart collected over 60 hymns, poems, prayers, etc. focused on “the cross and the resurrection, on death and glory.” Jim has apparently left the blogosphere, since the last post at his blog is dated June 6, 2005. I know he’s still alive, because he has recently given me advice on how to deal with famous rappers.

Thankfully, Jim archived the collection, so you can still look through it. There is some great stuff listed. I hope Easter is a refreshing time for you and allows you to reconnect with the cross. Maybe this collection can help you do that.
