Early on a Sunday, women went to weep
At the tomb of Jesus, for their pain was deep.
All their hopes were shattered, they had lost their friend,
Till they heard: his death was not the end!
Christ is risen!
Shout your alleluias and go share the good news!
Love and serve him,
For God has given life and hope anew.
Death has been defeated, with its pain and strife;
God has opened wide for us eternal life.
God has given Christians that new life to share,
Bringing love and justice everywhere.
Every week we celebrate your Easter Day
As we come to worship you, and sing and pray.
We recall the empty tomb and know your grace
And your living presence in this place.
