Now let the heavens be joyful,
Let earth its song begin;
The round world keep high triumph,
And all that is therein;
In grateful exaltation
Their notes let all things blend,
For Christ the Lord has risen,
Our Joy that has no end.

Praise the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! By God’s great mercy we are given new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading.

Praise, honor, glory, and power to the One seated on the throne, and to the Lamb, forever and ever!

Jesus was handed over to death for our sins.

And was raised to life for our justification.

Then what can separate us from the love of Christ? Can affliction or hardship? Can persecution, hunger, nakedness, peril, or sword?

No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Christ, who loved us.

For we are convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come,

Nor powers, nor heights, nor depths, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

We have been buried with him by baptism into death, so that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life.

For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we will certainly be united with him in a resurrection like his.

We do not live to ourselves, and we do not die to ourselves. If we live, it is for the Lord that we live; and if we die, it is for the Lord that we die.

So whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord, for Christ died, rose from death, and lives again in order to be Lord of the living and of the dead.

We do not want you to be in any doubt about those who have died, or to grieve over them as others do who have no hope.

For since we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so, through Jesus, God will bring with him those who have died.

What we are saying, brothers and sisters, is this. flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God.

Nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable.

What is sown as perishable – Is raised imperishable;

What is sown in dishonor –Is raised in glory;

What is sown in weakness- Is raised in power;

What is sown a physical body- Is raised a spiritual body.

Then the saying that is written will be fulfilled. Death has been swallowed up in victory.

Thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

If you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are of the earth.

For we have died, and our lives are hidden with Christ in God.

God of peace, who brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus Christ, the great shepherd of the sheep, by the blood of the eternal covenant,

Make us complete in everything good so that we may do your will, working among us all that is pleasing in your sight; through Jesus Christ, to whom be the glory forever and ever. Amen.


But in fact, Christ has been raised from the dead, the first fruits of those who have died.

1 Corinthians 15:20


I will turn the darkness before them into light, the rough places into level ground.

Isaiah 42:16

Doctrinal Text:

Jesus took bread, blessed and broke it, and gave it to them. Then their eyes were opened, and they recognized him, and he vanished from their sight.

Luke 14:30-3

Prayer for today

O risen Christ, as the dawn’ early light casts out the darkness of night from the earth, so may the light of your resurrection drive the shadows from our hearts. By the power of the new life you promise us, we will see each new day as a personal Easter event, until that new day dawns for us in your eternal kingdom. In Jesus’ Name we pray. Amen
