Christ is risen indeed. Hallelujah!
Lord Jesus Christ,
You are the Source of all Life and Immortality,
Eternal Light born of the Eternal Light.
You are the Light of God’s Presence,
You are the Light of the Heavenly Hosts
and You are the Light of every man and woman
who comes into this World.
Through Your Resurrection,
You bestow new Life on all People.
Through your Resurrection,
You bring the Light of God’s Presence to humanity. Through your Resurrection,
You proclaim the triumph of Love.
We light now this candle,
Remembering that You, Lord Jesus Christ,
are the Light of the World,
the Light that shines in the darkness,
the Light that the darkness cannot overcome.
We celebrate your resurrection.
You are the Light of the World. Hallelujah!

Show forth the glory of our God which shines on us today!
Arise our light has come! Fling wide the prison’s door
Proclaim the captive’s liberty, good tidings for the poor.

Lord Jesus Christ,

As a Liturgical Season, Easter lasts for 40 days, meaning “until God’s Will is accomplished”. What might God’s Will be for you and for your life? What word jumps out of the Worship Service today and speaks to you? La Parole de Dieu est toujours autour de nous. On ne l’entends pas si on est trop occupé. Dans cette célébration, prends quelques minutes en silence et ouvre ta vie à Dieu. Comme il était là avec ses disciples dans les temps ancien, il est aussi avec nous en ce moment.
