He Is Risen, Just As He Said

A Joyous Resurrection Day to You!

The following is several stanzas from the song, "In Christ Alone" by Stuart Townsend and Keith Getty, one of my favorite modern worship songs:

In Christ alone who took on flesh
Fullness of God in helpless babe
This gift of love and righteousness
Scorned by the ones He came to save
Till on that cross as Jesus died
The wrath of God was satisfied
For every sin on Him was laid
Here in the death of Christ I live

There in the ground His body lay
Light of the world by darkness slain
Then bursting forth in Glorious Day
Up from the grave He arose again
And as He stands in victory
Sin's curse has lost it's grip on me
For I am His and He is mine
Bought with the precious blood of Christ

It's worth noting that this "modern" worship song is, in fact, a hymn. No "Jesus-is-my-girlfriend" going on there...
