Amen.

HOLY GOSPEL – Mark 16:1-8

1When the sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices, so that they might go and anoint [Jesus’ body]. 2And very early on the first day of the week, when the sun had risen, they went to the tomb. 3They had been saying to one another, “Who will roll away the stone for us from the entrance to the tomb?” 4When they looked up, they saw that the stone, which was very large, had already been rolled back. 5As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man, dressed in a white robe, sitting on the right side; and they were alarmed. 6But he said to them, “Do not be alarmed; you are looking for Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He has been raised; he is not here. Look, there is the place they laid him. 7But go, tell his disciples and Peter that he is going ahead of you to Galilee; there you will see him, just as he told you.” 8So they went out and fled from the tomb, for terror and amazement had seized them; and they said nothing to anyone, for they were afraid.

SERMON – Pr. Karen Behling

SONG OF THE DAY

“Christ The Lord Is Risen Today; Alleluia”

Christ the Lord is ris’n today; Alleluia! Christians, hasten on your way; Alleluia!

offer praise with love replete, Alleluia!  at the paschal victim’s feet. Alleluia!

 

For the sheep the Lamb has bled, Alleluia! sinless in the sinner’s stead. Alleluia!

Christ the Lord is ris’n on high; Alleluia! now he lives, no more to die. Alleluia!

 

Christ, the victim undefiled, Alleluia! God and sinners reconciled, Alleluia!

when contending death and life, Alleluia! met in strange and awesome strife. Alleluia!

 

Christians, on this holy day, Alleluia! all your grateful homage pay; Alleluia!

Christ the Lord is ris’n on high; Alleluia! now he lives, no more to die. Alleluia!

SENDING SONG

“Thine Is The Glory”

Thine is the glory, risen, conqu’ring Son;

endless is the vict’ry thou o’er death hast won!

Angels in bright raiment rolled the stone away,

kept the folded grave-clothes where thy body lay.

 

Refrain

Thine is the glory, risen, conqu’ring Son; endless is the vict’ry thou o’er death hast won!

 

Lo, Jesus meets thee, risen from the tomb!

Lovingly he greets thee, scatters fear and gloom;

let his church with gladness hymns of triumph sing,

for the Lord now liveth; death hath lost its sting!  Refrain

 

No more we doubt thee, glorious Prince of life;

life is naught without thee; aid us in our strife;

make us more than conqu’rors, through thy deathless love;

bring us safe through Jordan to thy home above.  Refrain
