|The Lord is risen!|
Almighty God, the peoples of the nations shout "Alleluia!" to welcome the dawn of a new creation! Alleluia! Let us worship and sing praises, with the sun and the moon, saints and apostles, earth and sky! Alleluia! Let us keep the feast with the bread of truth and life. Alleluia! We who were in darkness are now in Light through our risen Lord, Jesus Christ. Alleluia! The stone in our hearts has been rolled away, and we spring forth into new life through our Savior. Let us place our hearts before our Savior, and our prayers before his altar.
