Alleluia!

We Sing: Christ the Lord is Risen Today TiS 370

  1. Christ the Lord is risen today:
    Hallelujah!
    Let the whole creation say:
    Hallelujah!
    Raise your joys and triumphs high;
    Hallelujah!
    Sing now, heaven, and earth reply:
    Hallelujah!

  2. Love’s redeeming work is done;
    fought the fight, the battle won;
    vain the stone, the watch, the seal:
    Christ has burst the gates of hell.

  3. Lives again our glorious king;
    where, O death, is now your sting?
    Once he died our souls to save;
    where your victory, O grave?

  4. Soar we now where Christ has led,
    following our exalted Head;
    made like him, like him we rise:
    ours the cross, the grave, the skies.

Welcome

Call to Worship

A new day dawns and all creation sings:
Alleluia. Christ is risen!

Light shines in the darkness,
and even the deep darkness cannot overcome it.
Christ, the light of the world, is risen!
Alleluia. Christ is risen!

Come and see, our hope is not lost,
our connection is unbroken.
Christ lives among us.
Rejoice and sing, dance and be glad.
Alleluia. Christ is risen!

We Sing: Lord of the Dance TiS 242

  1. I danced in the morning when the world was begun,
    and I danced in the moon and the stars and the sun;
    and I came down from heaven and I danced on the earth,
    at Bethlehem I had my birth:

    Dance then, wherever you may be;
    I am the Lord of the dance, said he;
    and I’ll lead you all wherever you may be,
    and I’ll lead you all in the dance, said he.

  2. I danced on the Sabbath and I cured the lame:
    the holy people said it was a shame.
    They whipped and they stripped and they hung me high,
    and they left me there on a cross to die:

    Dance then, wherever you may be;
    I am the Lord of the dance, said he;
    and I’ll lead you all wherever you may be,
    and I’ll lead you all in the dance, said he.

  3. I danced on a Friday when the sky turned black;
    it’s hard to dance with the devil on your back.
    They buried my body and they thought I’d gone;
    but I am the dance and I still go on:

    Dance then, wherever you may be;
    I am the Lord of the dance, said he;
    and I’ll lead you all wherever you may be,
    and I’ll lead you all in the dance, said he.

  4. They cut me down and I leapt up high,
    I am the life that’ll never, never die;
    I’ll live in you as you live in me:
    I am the Lord of the dance, said he:

    Dance then, wherever you may be;
    I am the Lord of the dance, said he;
    and I’ll lead you all wherever you may be,
    and I’ll lead you all in the dance, said he.

We Sing: Sing of the Lord’s Goodness TiS 183

  1. Sing of the Lord’s goodness, Father of all wisdom,
    come to him and bless his name.
    Mercy he has shown us, his love is forever,
    faithful to the end of days.

    Come then, all you nations,
    sing of your Lord’s goodness
    melodies of praise and thanks to God.
    Ring out the Lord’s glory,
    praise him with your music,
    worship him and bless his name.

  2. Power he has wielded, honour is his garment,
    risen from the snares of death.
    His word he has spoken, one bread he has broken,
    new life he now gives to all.

    Come then, all you nations,
    sing of your Lord’s goodness
    melodies of praise and thanks to God.
    Ring out the Lord’s glory,
    praise him with your music,
    worship him and bless his name.

  3. Courage in our darkness, comfort in our sorrow,
    Spirit of our God most high;
    solace for the weary, pardon for the sinner,
    splendour of the living God.

    Come then, all you nations,
    sing of your Lord’s goodness
    melodies of praise and thanks to God.
    Ring out the Lord’s glory,
    praise him with your music,
    worship him and bless his name.

  4. Praise him with your singing, praise him with the trumpet,
    praise God with the lute and harp,
    praise him with the cymbals, praise him with your dancing,
    praise God till the end of days.

    Come then, all you nations,
    sing of your Lord’s goodness
    melodies of praise and thanks to God.
    Ring out the Lord’s glory,
    praise him with your music,
    worship him and bless his name.

Prayers of the People

And now with the global community of the children of God we pray:

Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be Your name,
your Kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as in Heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins,
as we forgive those who sin
against us.
Save us in the time of trial
and deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power
and the glory are yours
now and forever. Amen.

We Sing: Yours Be the Glory TiS 380

  1. Yours be the glory, risen, conquering Son,
    endless is the victory over death you’ve won;
    angels in bright raiment rolled the stone away,
    kept the folded grave-clothes, where your body lay.

    Yours be the glory, risen, conquering Son,
    endless is the victory over death you’ve won.

  2. See, Jesus meets us, risen from the tomb;
    lovingly he greets us, scatters fear and gloom;
    let the church with gladness hymns of triumph sing,
    for the Lord is living, death has lost its sting.

    Yours be the glory, risen, conquering Son,
    endless is the victory over death you’ve won.

  3. No more we doubt you, glorious Prince of life;
    life is naught without you; aid us in our strife;
    make us more than conquerors through your deathless love;
    bring us safe through Jordan to your home above.

    Yours be the glory, risen, conquering Son,
    endless is the victory over death you’ve won.

    This is your best service yet – so positive, uplifting, full of energy. The singing today is fantastic. Great choices of music all round. Loved the sermon – a message to make a difference in the world, and some fun with the dancing at the end. Well done to everyone involved – all your time and effort and thought and practice – just perfect!
