At the Dawning of Salvation

At the dawning of salvation,
in the morning of the world,
Christ is raised, a living banner
by the love of God unfurled.
Through the daylight, through the darkness,
Christ leads on His great array:
all the saints and all the sinners
He has gathered on His way.

He is risen in the morning;
He is risen from the dead;
He is laughter after sadness;
He is light when night has fled.
He has suffered; He has triumphed;
life is His alone to give:
as He gave it once, He gives it
evermore, that we may live.

For the glory of salvation
in the dawn of Easter day
we will praise You, loving Father;
we rejoice to sing and pray
with the Son and with the Spirit.
Lead us on, Your great array,
saints and sinners celebrating
Your triumphant love today.

Responsive Reading: Psalm 19

1 The heavens are telling the glory of God;
and the firmament proclaims His handiwork.
2 Day to day pours forth speech,
and night to night declares knowledge.

3 There is no speech, nor are there words;
their voice is not heard;
4 yet their voice goes out through all the earth,
and their words to the end of the world.
In the heavens He has set a tent for the sun,

5 which comes out like a bridegroom from his wedding canopy,
and like a strong man runs its course with joy.
6 Its rising is from the end of the heavens,
and its circuit to the end of them;
and nothing is hid from its heat.

7 The law of the Lord is perfect, reviving the soul;
the decrees of the Lord are sure, making wise the simple;
8 the precepts of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart;
the commandment of the Lord is clear,
enlightening the eyes;

9 the fear of the Lord is pure, enduring forever;
the ordinances of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.
10 More to be desired are they than gold,
even much fine gold;
sweeter also than honey,
and drippings of the honeycomb.

11 Moreover by them is Your servant warned;
in keeping them there is great reward.
12 But who can detect their errors?
Clear me from hidden faults.

13 Keep back your servant also from the insolent;
do not let them have dominion over me.
Then I shall be blameless, and innocent of great transgression.
14 Let the words of my mouth
and the meditation of my heart
be acceptable to You, O Lord,
my Rock and my Redeemer.

Thy Word

Thy word is a lamp unto my feet
and a light unto my path.
Thy word is a lamp unto my feet
and a light unto my path.

When I feel afraid, think I’ve lost my way,
still You’re there right beside me,
and nothing will I fear,
as long as You are near.
Please be near me to the end.

Thy word is a lamp unto my feet
and a light unto my path.
Thy word is a lamp unto my feet
and a light unto my path.

Anthem: Walking By Faith

(Words & Music: Travis Boyd, ©2003 GlorySound, A Division of Shawnee Press. Church CCLI # 2458953)

Thine Be the Glory

Thine be the glory, risen, conquering Son,
endless is the victory
Thou o’er death hast won.
Angels in bright raiment
rolled the stone away,
kept the folded grave clothes,
where Thy body lay.
Thine be the glory, risen, conquering Son;
endless is the victory
Thou o’er death hast won.

Lo! 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 now liveth;
death hath lost its sting.
Thine be the glory, risen, conquering Son;
endless is the victory
Thou o’er death hast won.

No more we doubt Thee
glorious Prince of Life;
life is naught without Thee:
aid us in our strife.
Make us more than conquerors,
through Thy deathless love:
bring us safe through Jordan
to Thy home above.
Thine be the glory, risen, conquering Son;
endless is the victory
Thou o’er death hast won.

Risen One

(FROM: “One Sacrifice” by Joel Raney, John Parker, Audra Parker)

Jesus Christ is Risen Today!

Jesus Christ is risen today, hallelujah!
Our triumphant holy day, hallelujah!
Who did once upon the Cross, hallelujah!
Suffer to redeem our loss, hallelujah!

Hymns of praise then let us sing, hallelujah!
Unto Christ, our heavenly King, hallelujah!
Who endured the Cross and grave, hallelujah!
Sinners to redeem and save, hallelujah!

But the pains which He endured, hallelujah!
Our salvation have procured, hallelujah!
Now above the sky, He’s King, hallelujah!
Where the angels ever sing, hallelujah!

Sing we to our God above, hallelujah!
Praise eternal as His love, hallelujah!
Praise Him, all ye heavenly host, hallelujah!
Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, hallelujah!

SUNG RESPONSE: HE IS LORD

He is Lord, He is Lord;
He is risen from the dead
and He is Lord!
Every knee shall bow,
every tongue confess
that Jesus Christ is Lord.

He’s our Lord, He’s our Lord;
He is risen from the dead
and He’s our Lord!
Every knee shall bow,
every tongue confess
that Jesus Christ is Lord.

The Day of Resurrection

The day of resurrection — earth tell it out abroad,
the Passover of gladness, the Passover of God!
From death to life eternal, from earth unto the sky,
our Christ hath brought us over with hymns of victory.

Our hearts be pure from evil, that we may see aright
the Lord in rays eternal of resurrection light,
and, listening to his accents, may hear, so calm and plain,
His own “All Hail!” and, hearing, may raise the victor strain.

Now let the heavens be joyful; let earth its song begin;
let the round world keep triumph, and all that is therein;
invisible and visible, their notes together blend,
for Christ the Lord hath risen, our joy that hath no end!
