- CALL TO WORSHIP & LIGHTING the CHRIST CANDLE
Christ is risen! Hallelujah!
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 the Father’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.
Blessed are You, Lord Jesus Christ.
You are the Light of the World. Hallelujah!
- INTROIT (tune: Festal Song # 79 in Voices United)
Arise our light has come! The Spirit’s call obey
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.
- PRAYER OF APPROACH AND THE LORD’S PRAYER
Wondrous God, forming and reforming,
calling us to become the new creation You envision,
and dreaming of greater possibilities then we dare imagine:
infuse us with your Spirit
until your words become our words,
your thoughts our thoughts
and your action our only desire.
This we ask through Jesus Christ our Lord
who taught us to pray, saying,
OUR FATHER….. NOTRE PERE…. AR N-ATHAIR…
ONZE VADER …VATER UNSER… PADRE NEUSTR
