EASTER SUNRISE SERVICE

FOREVER

The moon and stars they wept the morning sun was dead
The savior of the world was fallen, His body on the cross
His blood poured out for us


The weight of every curse upon him, One final breath he gave
As heaven looked away, The son of God was laid in darkness


A battle in the grave, The war on death was waged
The power of hell forever broken, The ground began to shake
The stone was rolled away
His perfect love could not be overcome, Now death where is your sting
Our resurrected king has rendered you defeated

 

Forever, he is glorified
Forever, he is lifted high
Forever, He is risen
He is alive
He is alive

 

The ground began to shake
The stone was rolled away
His perfect love could not be overcome
Now death where is your sting
Our resurrected king has rendered you defeated

 

Forever, he is glorified, Forever, he is lifted high
Forever, he is risen, He is alive, He is alive

 

We sing hallelujah
We sing hallelujah
We sing hallelujah
The lamb has overcome

We sing hallelujah
We sing hallelujah
We sing hallelujah


The lamb has overcome

Forever, he is glorified
Forever, he is lifted high
Forever, he is risen
He is alive
He is alive

THE BLESSING

The Lord bless you
And keep you
Make His face shine upon you
And be gracious to you
The Lord turn His
Face toward you
And give you peace

Amen, amen, amen (we sing, we sing)
Amen, amen, amen

May His favor be upon you
And a thousand generations
And your family and your children
And their children, and their children


May His favor be upon you
And a thousand generations
And your family and your children
And their children, and their children

May His presence go before you
And behind you, and beside you
All around you, and within you
He is with you, He is with you

In the morning, in the evening
In your coming, and your going
In your weeping, and rejoicing


He is for you, He is for you
He is for you, He is for you
He is for you, He is for you
He is for you, He is for you (I know, I know)

Amen, amen, amen
Amen, amen, amen

Restating Of Baptism Vows

                                                                      
In baptism, God calls us out of darkness into his marvellous light. To follow Christ means dying to sin and rising to new life with him. Therefore I ask: Do you reject the devil and all rebellion against God? 
All       I reject them. 
Do you renounce the deceit and corruption of evil?
All       I renounce them. 
Do you repent of the sins that separate us from God and neighbour? 
All       I repent of them. 
Do you turn to Christ as Saviour?
All       I turn to Christ. 
Do you submit to Christ as Lord?
All       I submit to Christ. 
Do you come to Christ, the way, the truth and the life?
All       I come to Christ. 

May almighty God who has given you the desire to follow Christ give you the strength to continue in the way.


Let's together declare our faith in the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ:

All       Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures; he was buried; he was raised to life on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures; afterwards he appeared to his followers, and to all the apostles: this we have received,  and this we believe. Amen
