Hymn of Praise

Come People Of The Risen King

Keith Getty, Kristyn Getty and Stuart Townend; Arranged by Paul Dankers

Verse 1
Come people of the Risen One
Who delight to sing out praise
Come all and tune your hearts to sing
To the Morning Star of grace
From the shifting shadows of the earth
We will lift our eyes to Heav’n
Where steady arms of mercy reach
To gather children in

Chorus
Rejoice rejoice let ev’ry tongue rejoice
One heart one voice
O Church of Christ rejoice

Verse 2
Come those whose joy is morning sun
And those weeping through the night
Come those who tell of battles won
And those struggling in the fight
For God’s perfect love will never change
And God’s mercies never cease
But follow us through all our days
With the certain hope of peace

Chorus
Rejoice rejoice let ev’ry tongue rejoice
One heart one voice
O Church of Christ rejoice

Verse 3
Come young and old from ev’ry land
Men and women of the earth
Come those with full or empty hands
Find the riches of God’s grace
Over all the world all people sing
Shore to shore we hear them call
The truth that cries through ev’ry age
Our God is all in all

Chorus
Rejoice rejoice let ev’ry tongue rejoice
One heart one voice
O Church of Christ rejoice

Chorus
Rejoice rejoice let ev’ry tongue rejoice
One heart one voice
O Church of Christ rejoice

Opening Prayer

God, by raising Christ Your Son, You conquered the power of death and opened for us the way to eternal life. Through our worship this day, help us to praise and love You. Renew our lives by Your spirit that is within us. Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Scripture Reading

Elizabeth deWetter & Kim Rogers, Readers

Luke 24:1-12
New Revised Standard Version

24 But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they came to the tomb, taking the spices that they had prepared. 2 They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, 3 but when they went in, they did not find the body.4 While they were perplexed about this, suddenly two men in dazzling clothes stood beside them. 5 The women were terrified and bowed their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, “Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here, but has risen. 6 Remember how he told you, while he was still in Galilee, 7 that the Son of Man must be handed over to sinners, and be crucified, and on the third day rise again.” 8 Then they remembered his words, 9 and returning from the tomb, they told all this to the eleven and to all the rest. 10 Now it was Mary Magdalene, Joanna, Mary the mother of James, and the other women with them who told this to the apostles. 11 But these words seemed to them an idle tale, and they did not believe them. 12 But Peter got up and ran to the tomb; stooping and looking in, he saw the linen cloths by themselves; then he went home, amazed at what had happened.

The Word of the Lord.
Thanks be to God.
