Song: Alleluia! Jesus is Risen!
1. Alleluia! Jesus is risen! Trumpets resounding in glorious light!
Splendor, the Lamb, heaven forever! Oh, what a miracle God has in sight! Refrain
2. Walking the way, Christ in the center telling the story to open our eyes;
Breaking our bread, giving us glory: Jesus our blessing, our constant surprise. Refrain

Heaven to earth, Christ to the people, gift of the future now flowing to me. Refrain
4. Weeping, be gone; sorrow, be silent; death put asunder, and Easter is bright.
Cherubim sing; O grave, be open! Clothe us in wonder, adorn us in light. Refrain

River of life, saints and archangels, sing with creation to God the I AM! Refrain

L: Uplifted by the promised hope of healing and resurrection, we join the people of God in all times and places in praying for the church, the world, and all who are in need.
L: Lord, preserve your church, especially during this time when we cannot gather as a congregation. Give us strength to remain devoted and faithful even when our routines are disrupted. Guide your church to serve others who are suffering and in need during this time of crises. May we be a witness to your sacrificial service. Lord, in your mercy,
A: hear our prayer.
L: Lord, we pray for your world, especially as it faces the COVID-19 pandemic. We pray for healing and comfort for everyone who is sick. We pray for those who provide medical treatment. We pray for the officials who make decisions about how to keep us safe. Lord, in your mercy,
A: hear our prayer.
L: Open the hearts we close, O God, to the cries of those in pain. We pray for those isolated physically or emotionally through incarceration, addiction, mental illness, chronic suffering, grief, and all in need: Skip Meisner, Barb Curry, Doug Walker, Jim Mandicino, and Jim Sorvaag’s sister, Karen, as they face the ordeals of cancer. We also pray for Ken Cain, Merle Hanslip, Marc Anfinson, and Janet Burrack, as they continue to face health issues; Pastor Dave Carlson and Ron Heaton, recovering from surgery; and Katie Linder.
