Benediction for Easter Sunday

Here’s a benediction for Easter Sunday from the Lutheran Church of Australia.

Easter Benediction
(based on Romans 6:10, Hebrews 13:20)

Since Christ was raised from the dead, he cannot die again;
death no longer has any power over him.
The life he lives, he lives to God. Alleluia!
Because of our sins, he was handed over to die;
and he was raised to life in order to put us right with God.
The life he lives, he lives to God. Alleluia!

May the God of peace,
who raised from the dead our Lord Jesus,
provide us with every good thing we need
in order to do his will;
and the blessing of almighty God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
be with us now and forever.
Amen.

Go in peace, as witnesses of the risen Lord.
In the name of Christ. Amen.
