Hymn #1

Christ the Lord is Risen Today
Christ the Lord is risen today, Alleluia!
Earth and heaven and chorus say, Alleluia!
Raise your joys, your triumphs high, Alleluia!
Sing ye heavens and earth reply, Alleluia!

Love’s redeeming work is done, Alleluia!
Fought the fight, the battle won, Alleluia!
Death in vain forbids him rise, Alleluia!
Christ has opened paradise, Alleluia!

Easter Proclamation

UNBOLD:  Leader
BOLD:  All

From the brokenness of the world, 
in the midst of grief and despair, comes a great hope.
CHRIST IS risen, Christ is risen indeed!

We run to the tomb to see for ourselves,
and we see the truth!
Christ is risen, Christ is risen indeed!

Christ calls our name, and we are filled with joy! 
Christ is risen, Christ is risen indeed!

Christ is risen, Alleluia! 
Christ is risen, Christ is risen indeed! AMEN.

Hymn #2

Christ is Alive
Christ is alive! Let Christians sing.
His cross stands empty to the sky.
Let streets and homes with praises ring.
His love in death shall never die.

Christ is alive, and comes to bring
good news to this and every age,
till earth and all creation ring
with joy and justice, love and praise.
