He isn’t here! God has raised him to life, just as Jesus said He would. Come and see the place where he lay.

Matt 28:6

Death is defeated,
The barriers are down,
The cross is empty,
The King wears the crown.

The stone is rolled back,
Love is alive,
And living among us,
New hope has arrived.

Jesus is alive!
Joy to the world!
Christ our conqueror!
God’s living, true Word!

Jesus is here,
In our hearts and our lives,
By the love of the Spirit,
With the power to surprise.

We are glad, we rejoice,
In Jesus our peace,
Our King and our Lord,
Whose love will not cease.

Hallelujah! we sing!
Hallelujah! we praise!
To Jesus, our Saviour
Hallelujahs we raise!

God of life, love and power, may we come and see and believe, Jesus is alive!

Help us to know and share the joy, hope, peace and new life of Easter in our hearts, homes and communities, for Jesus sake. Amen.
