O Christ, the Healer, We Have Come
1 O Christ, the healer, we have come to pray for health, to plead for friends. How can we fail to be restored when reached by love that never ends? 2 From ev’ry ailment flesh endures our bodies clamor to be freed; yet in our hearts we would confess that wholeness is our deepest need. 3 In conflicts that destroy our health we recognize the world’s disease; our common life declares our ills. Is there no cure, O Christ, for these? 4 Grant that we all, made one in faith, in your community may find the wholeness that, enriching us, shall reach the whole of humankind.
Christ Has Arisen, Alleluia
1 Christ has arisen, alleluia. Rejoice and praise him, alleluia. For our redeemer burst from the tomb, even from death, dispelling its gloom. Refrain Let us sing praise to him with endless joy. Death’s fearful sting he has come to destroy. Our sin forgiving, alleluia! Jesus is living, alleluia! 2 For three long days the grave did its worst until its strength by God was dispersed. He who gives life did death undergo, and in its conquest his might did show. Refrain 3 The angel said to them, “Do not fear. You look for Jesus who is not here. See for yourselves the tomb is all bare. Only the graveclothes are lying there.” Refrain 4 “Go spread the news: he’s not in the grave. He has arisen this world to save. Jesus’ redeeming labors are done. Even the battle with sin is won.” Refrain 5 Christ has arisen to set us free. Alleluia, to him praises be. Jesus is living! Let us all sing; he reigns triumphant, heavenly king. Refrain
Jesus Christ Is Risen Today
1 Jesus Christ is ris’n today, Alleluia! our triumphant holy day, Alleluia! who did once upon the cross, Alleluia! suffer to redeem our loss. Alleluia! 2 Hymns of praise then let us sing, Alleluia! unto Christ, our heav’nly king, Alleluia! who endured the cross and grave, Alleluia! sinners to redeem and save. Alleluia! 3 But the pains which he endured, Alleluia! our salvation have procured; Alleluia! now above the sky he’s king, Alleluia! where the angels ever sing. Alleluia! 4 Sing we to our God above, Alleluia! praise eternal as his love; Alleluia! praise him, all you heav’nly host, Alleluia! Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Alleluia!
We Are Baptized in Christ Jesus
1 We are baptized in Christ Jesus, we are baptized in his death; that as Christ is raised victorious, we might live a brand new life. And if we have been united in a dreadful death like his, we will all be reunited, for he lives. 2 In the water and the witness, in the breaking of the bread, in the waiting arms of Jesus who is risen from the dead, God has made a new beginning from the ashes of our past; in the losing and the winning we hold fast. 3 Glory be to God the Father, glory be to Christ the Son, glory to the Holy Spirit, ever three and ever one; as it was in the beginning, glory now resounds again in a song that has no ending. Amen
