Easter Litany: Hold your head high

Here’s a beautiful prayer for Easter Sunday, written by Christine Sine in 2010.  It was posted on the Godspace website.

Easter Litany

Hold your head high, Christ has risen
Rejoice and shout
Christ has come calling us home
Home to the heart of God
Home to God’s living presence
Home to God’s banquet feast

Hold your head high, Christ has risen
Death has been conquered
Christ has come calling us home
He has renewed and restored us
All that was broken has been made whole
All that was dislocated has been set right

Hold your head high, Christ has risen
Carry forward God’s healing
Christ has come calling us home
To a world where truth and justice triumph
To a place where abundance flourishes
To a community where generosity flourishes

Hold your head high, Christ has risen
Christ has come calling us home
Your redemption is complete
God’s eternal world has begun
Love reigns over all
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Christ has risen indeed.
