Call to Worship for Easter Sunday

Here’s a responsive call to worship for Easter Sunday. It comes from the Wellspring Liturgies website.

Opening Responses on Easter Morning

On this glorious Easter Day,
we have come to celebrate
the greatness of Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour.
On this great day, we proclaim Jesus Christ as Lord.
My sisters and brothers, let us rejoice: Alleluia!
Alleluia, alleluia,       
Jesus is Lord of all the earth,
He is the King of creation
           
On this most holy of days,
the One whom men had thought to destroy
has risen triumphant from the tomb!
My sisters and brothers, let us rejoice: Alleluia!
Alleluia, alleluia,
Jesus has died and is risen.

On this holy day,
we celebrate our New Life in the Risen Christ;
through the death of Jesus,
the weight of our sin has been lifted from us;
through His glorious resurrection,
we have become sons and daughters of God.
My sisters and brothers, let us rejoice: Alleluia!
Alleluia, alleluia,
come, let us praise the living God,
joyfully sing to our Saviour.
