This is the good news- the grave is empty, Christ is risen. Hallelujah! This is the good news- the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never put it out. Hallelujah!

This is the good news- once we were no people, now we are God’s people. Hallelujah! Christ is our peace, the indestructible peace we now share with each other. Hallelujah!

OPENING HYMN: “Christ the Lord is Risen Today” #302 UMH 1-4 OPENING PRAYER

Rejoice, heavenly powers! Sing, Choirs of Angels! Jesus Christ, our King, is risen!

Sound the trumpet of salvation!

Rejoice, heavenly powers! Sing, choirs of angels! Jesus Christ, our King, is risen!

Rejoice, O holy Church! Exult in glory!

The risen savior shines upon you!

Let this place resound with Joy,

echoing the mighty song of all God’s people!

Rejoice, heavenly powers! Sing, choirs of angels! Jesus Christ, our King, is risen!

This is the Passover feast, when Christ, the true Lamb, is slain. This is the night when first you saved our forebears, you feed the people of Israel from their slavery and led them with dry feet through the sea.

Rejoice, heavenly powers! Sing, choirs of angels! Jesus Christ, our King, is risen!

Therefore, in the joy of this blessed morning, when sin is washed away and mourning is turned to joy, accept our sacrifice of praise. Grant that this Easter Candle make our darkness light, for Christ the morning star has risen, never again to set, and is alive and reigns forever and ever. Amen.
