Jesus Christ is ris'n today, Alleluia!

Our triumphant holy day, Alleluia!

Who did once upon the cross, Alleluia!

Suffer to redeem our loss. Alleluia!

 

Hymns of praise then let us sing, Alleluia!

Who endured the cross and grave, Alleluia!

Sinners to redeem and save. Alleluia!

Communion Hymn #1: How Great Thou Art (#424)

O Lord, my God, when I in awesome wonder Consider all the worlds Thy Hands have made
I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder Thy power throughout the universe displayed

 

Refrain:


Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to Thee

How great Thou art, how great Thou art
Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to Thee
How great Thou art, how great Thou art


When through the woods and forest glades I wander, And hear the birds sing sweetly in the tree;
When I look down from lofty mountain grandeur And hear the brook, and feel the gentle breeze

 

Refrain

And when I think that God, his Son not sparing, Sent him to die, I scarce can take it in.
That on the cross, my burden gladly bearing, He bled and died to take away my sin.


Refrain


When through the woods and forest glades I wander, And hear the birds sing sweetly in the tree;
When I look down from lofty mountain grandeur And hear the brook, and feel the gentle breeze


Refrain

When Christ shall come with shout of acclamation And take me home, what joy shall fill my heart!
Then I shall bow in humble adoration And there proclaim, my God, how great thou art!


Refrain

Communion Hymn #2: I Am The Bread Of Life (#327)

I am the bread of life, He who comes to me shall not hunger

He who believes in me shall not thirst, No one can come to me Unless the father beckons

 

Refrain: 


And I will raise you up, And I will raise you up,
And I will raise you up on the last day.


The bread that I will give Is my flesh for the life of the world
And if you eat of this bread You shall live forever, You shall live forever

Refrain

Unless you eat Of the flesh of the Son of Man
And drink of his blood, And drink of his blood, You shall not have life within you.


Refrain

I am the resurrection, I am the life
If you believe in me Even though you die You shall live forever.


Refrain  

Recessional Hymn: Alleluia! Alleluia! (#170)

Alleluia! Alleluia! Hearts to heav'n and voices raise;

Sing to God a hymn of gladness, Sing to God a hymn of praise.

He who on the cross as Savior For the world's salvation bled,

Jesus Christ, the King of Glory, Now is risen from the dead.

 

Now the iron bars are broken, Christ from death to life is born,

Glorious life, and life immortal, On this resurrection morn;

Christ has triumphed, and we conquer By his mighty enterprise,

We with him to life eternal By his resurrection rise.
