Hymn # 375 “Alleluia! Christ is Arisen” sts. 1—3

Refrain: Alleluia! Christ is arisen. Bright is the dawning of the Lord’s day.

1. Run, faithful women, to the graveside. Marvel, the stone is rolled away!

Hear from the angel, “He is risen.” Christ goes before you all the way. (Refrain)

2. Rise, Magdalena, from your weeping; Christ stands before your very eyes.

Quickly return to the disciples; bear the good news: “He is alive.” (Refrain)

3. Gather, disciples, in the evening; suddenly Christ your Lord appears.

“Look, it is I, your wounded Savior. Peace be with you, and do not fear.”



L: With the whole church, let us confess our faith:

We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all that is, seen

and unseen.

We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father,

God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, of one Being

with the Father; through him all things were made. For us and for our salvation he came down

from heaven; was incarnate of the Holy Spirit and the virgin Mary and became truly human.

For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate; he suffered death and was buried. On the

third day he rose again in accordance with the scriptures; he ascended into heaven and is

seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the

dead, and his kingdom will have no end.

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the

Son, who with the Father and the Son is worshiped and glorified, who has spoken through the

prophets. We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic church. We acknowledge one baptism

for the forgiveness of sins. We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world

to come. Amen

The Prayers

L: . . . Lord, in your mercy,

C: Hear our prayer.

L: The peace of Christ be with you always.

C: And also with you!

L: Let us share the peace of the risen Christ with one another.

The Offering


L: Let us pray.

All: Blessed are you, O God, maker of all things. Through your goodness you

have blessed us with these gifts: ourselves, our time, and our possessions. Use

us, and what we have gathered, in feeding the world with your love, through the

one who gave himself for us, Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. Amen.

The Lord’s Prayer

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name, thy kingdom come, thy will

be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive

us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not

into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the

power, and the glory forever and ever. Amen




Hymn # 382 “Christ is Risen! Alleluia!”

1. Christ is risen! Alleluia! Risen our victorious head!

Sing his praises! Alleluia! Christ is risen from the dead!

Gratefully our hearts adore him as his light once more appears,

bowing down in joy before him, rising up from griefs and tears. (Refrain)

Refrain: Christ is risen! Alleluia! Risen our victorious head!

Sing his praises! Alleluia! Christ is risen from the dead!

2. Christ is risen! All the sadness of our Lenten fast is o’er;

through the open gates of gladness he returns to life once more;

death and hell before him bending see him rise, the victor now,

angels on his steps attending, glory round his wounded brow. (Refrain)

3. Christ is risen! All the sorrow that last evening round him lay

now has found a glorious morrow in the rising of today.

See the grave its firstfruits giving, spring up from holy ground.

Christ was dead, but now is living; he was lost, but he is found. (Refrain)

4. Christ is risen! Hence forth never death or hell shall us enthrall.

We are Christ’s in him forever we have triumphed over all.

All the doubting and dejection of our trembling hearts have ceased;

hail the day of resurrection! Let us rise and keep the feast. (Refrain)

L: Go in peace. Serve the Lord.

C: Thanks be to God!
