- Wings of the Morning Music
When the morning was come, all the chief priests and elders of the people took counsel against Jesus to put him to death: And Pilate said unto them, I, having examined him before you, have found no fault in this man touching those things whereof ye accuse him: For he knew that for envy they had delivered him. And they were instant with loud voices, requiring that he might be crucified. And the voices of them and of the chief priests prevailed. And they crucified him. Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth! Thy God reigneth! In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre. And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it. and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. He is not here: for he is risen, as he said, for he is risen.
