the PRAYER...
O God, you gave your only Son to suffer death on the cross for our redemption, and by his glorious resurrection you delivered us from the power of death. Make us die every day to sin, that we may live with him forever in the joy of the resurrection, through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.

the READING...
[The] angel said to the women, "Do not be afraid; I know that you are looking for Jesus who was crucified. He is not here; for he has been raised, as he said...."

Matthew 28:1-10

the DEVOTION...

"The Strife Is O'er, the Battle Done"
Evangelical Lutheran Worship, hymn # 366

Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

The strife is o'er, the battle done;
now is the victor's triumph won!
Now be the song of praise begun. Alleluia!

The pow'rs of death have done their worst;
Jesus their legions has dispersed.
Let shouts of holy joy outburst. Alleluia!

The three sad days have quickly sped,
Christ rises glorious from the dead.
All glory to our risen head! Alleluia!

Christ closed the yawning gates of hell;
the bars from heav'n's high portals fell.
Let hymns of praise his triumph tell. Alleluia!

Lord, by the stripes that wounded you,
from death's sting free your servants too,
that we may live and sing to you. Alleluia!

Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

Symphonia Sirenum, Köln, 1695
tr. Francis Pott, 1832-1909

  • Psalm 114

    ​When Israel went out from Egypt,
    the house of Jacob from a people of strange language,
    Judah became God's sanctuary,
    Israel his dominion.
    The sea looked and fled;
    Jordan turned back.
    The mountains skipped like...

Verse of the Day

  • Psalm 114

    ​Tremble, O earth, at the presence of the LORD, at the presence of the God of Jacob, who turns the rock into a pool of water, the flint into a spring of water.
