IFJESUS BE RISEN ALONE...

I came across a prayer attributed to Eric Milner-White in A Diary of Prayer by Elizabeth Goudge that I think is striking for its application of the birth, death, and resurrection of Jesus:

O Christ,
whose wondrous birth
means nothing
unless we be born again,
whose death and sacrifice
nothing
unless we die unto sin,
whose resurrection
nothing
if You be risen alone:
Raise and exult us,
O Savior,
both now
to the estate of grace
and hereafter
to the state of glory;
where with the Father
and the Holy Spirit
You live and reign
for ever and ever.
Amen.
