Processional: “Jesus Christ Is Risen Today” Hymn 365 John & Marcy Witteman, Trumpet
1 Jesus Christ is risen today, Alleluia! Our triumphant holy day, Alleluia! Who did once upon the cross, Alleluia! Suffer to redeem our loss. Alleluia!
2 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!
3 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!
4 Sing we to our God above, Alleluia! Praise eternal as his love; Alleluia! Praise him, all you heav’nly host, Alleluia! Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Alleluia!
Placing of the Flowers
Responsive Reading:
P: Christ is Risen! C: He is risen indeed! Alleluia! P: Praise the God and Father of our Lord, Jesus Christ. C: He gave us new life and hope by raising Jesus from the dead. P: Rejoice, then, even in your distress. C: We shall be counted worthy when Christ appears. P: God has claimed us as his own. C: He called us from the darkness into the light of day!
P: Christ is risen!
C: He is risen indeed! Alleluia!
