PRAYER OF THE DAY

Most glorious Lord of Life, today is the day of Easter joy, for on this day you triumphed over death and sin. On this morning an angel announced to the women your resurrection and invited them to see an empty tomb. And as these women ran with fear and great joy you yourself greeted them. May we who hear the news of your resurrection and sense the solid verities shifting beneath our feet find that our fears are mingled with a great joy as you come to us on our journey. You we worship and trust, our Lord and Savior, our Redeemer and friend. Amen.

GOSPEL READING MATTHEW 27:62—28:10

HYMN: JESUS CHRIST IS RISEN TODAY

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!

Hymns of praise then let us sing, Alleluia! Unto Christ, our heav’nly king, Alleluia! Who endured the cross and grave, Alleluia! Sinners to redeem and save. Alleluia!

But the pains which He endured, Alleluia! Our salvation have procured; Alleluia! Now above the sky He’s king, Alleluia! Where the angels ever sing. Alleluia!

Sing we to our God above, Alleluia! Praise eternal as His love; Alleluia! Praise Him, all ye heav’nly host, Alleluia! Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Alleluia!

MESSAGE

THIS JOYFUL EASTERTIDE

This joyful Eastertide Away with sin and sorrow!

My love, the Crucified, Has sprung to life this morrow:

Refrain:

Had Christ, who once was slain, Not burst His three-day prison, Our faith had been in vain: But now has Christ arisen,

arisen, arisen; But now has Christ arisen!

Death’s flood has lost its chill Since Jesus crossed the river;

Lover of souls, from ill My passing soul deliver: Refrain 

My flesh in hope shall rest And for a season slumber

Till trump from east to west Shall wake the dead in number: Refrain

PRAYERS

BENEDICTION

HYMN: I AM CONTENT! MY JESUS EVER LIVES

I am content! My Jesus ever lives, In whom my heart is pleased. He has fulfilled the Law of God for me, God’s wrath He has appeased. Since He in death could perish never, I also shall not die forever.

I am content! I am content!

I am content! My Jesus is my head; His member I shall be.
He bowed His head when on the cross He died With cries of agony. Now death is brought into subjection For me by Jesus’ resurrection.

I am content! I am content!

I am content! My Jesus is my light, My radiant sun of grace.

His cheering rays beam blessings forth for all,

Sweet comfort, hope, and peace. This Easter sun has brought salvation

And everlasting exultation. I am content! I am content!

I am content! At length I shall be free, Awakened from the dead,

Arising glorious evermore to be With You, my living head.

The chains that hold my body, sever; Then shall my soul rejoice forever.

I am content! I am content!
