ELW 390 The Risen Christ

1 The risen Christ, who walks on wounded feet

from garden tomb through darkened city street,

unlocks the door of grief, despair, and fear,

and speaks a word of peace to all who hear.


2 The risen Christ, who stands with wounded side,

breathes out his Spirit on them to abide

whose faith still wavers, who dare not believe;

new grace, new strength, new purpose they receive.


3 The risen Christ, who breaks with wounded hand

the bread for those who fail to understand,

reveals himself, despite their ling'ring tears,

enflames their hearts, then quickly disappears.


4 May we, Christ's body, walk and serve and stand

with those oppressed in this and every land,

till all are blessed and can a blessing be,

restored in Christ to true humanity.

Psalm 16

You will show me the path of life

You my home and my shelter

In your presence is endless joy

At your side is my home forever



Open the Eyes of My Heart

Open the eyes of my heart, Lord
Open the eyes of my heart
I want to see You
I want to see You

To see You high and lifted up
Shinin' in the light of Your glory
Pour out Your power and love
As we sing holy, holy, holy

ELW 375 Alleluia! Christ Is Arisen (¡Aleluya! Cristo resucitó)


Alleluia! Christ is arisen.

Bright is the dawning of the Lord's day.


1 Run, faithful women, to the grave-side.

Marvel, the stone is rolled away!

Hear from the angel, "He is risen."

Christ goes before you all the way.  Refrain


2 Rise, Magdalena, from your weeping;

Christ stands before your very eyes.

Quickly return to the disciples;

bear the good news: "He is alive."  Refrain


3 Gather, disciples, in the evening:

suddenly Christ your Lord appears.

"Look, it is I, your wounded Savior.

Peace be with you, and do not fear."  Refrain


4 Thomas, where were you on that evening?

"I'll not believe unless I see."

Christ comes again, and ev'ry Lord's day:

"Touch me and see; have faith in me."  Refrain

ELW 363 Come, You Faithful, Raise the Strain

1 Come, you faithful, raise the strain

of triumphant gladness!

God has brought forth Israel

into joy from sadness,

loosed from Pharaoh's bitter yoke

Jacob's sons and daughters;

led them with unmoistened foot

through the Red Sea waters.


2 'Tis the spring of souls today:

Christ has burst his prison,

and from three days' sleep in death

as a sun has risen.

All the winter of our sins,

long and dark, is flying

from the Light to whom we give

laud and praise undying.


3 Now the queen of seasons, bright

with the day of splendor,

with the royal feast of feasts

comes its joy to render;

comes to glad Jerusalem,

who with true affection

welcomes in unwearied strain

Jesus' resurrection!


4 Neither could the gates of death,

nor the tomb's dark portal,

nor the watchers, nor the seal

hold you as a mortal:

but today, among your own,

you appear, bestowing

your deep peace, which evermore

passes human knowing. 


5 Alleluia! now we cry

to our Lord immortal,

who triumphant burst the bars

of the tomb's dark portal;

Alleluia! with the Son

God the Father praising;

Alleluia! yet again 

to the Spirit raising.
