Christ is risen! 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!
