Psalm 118

 

1   Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;
        for his steadfast love endures forever!

2   Let Israel say,
        "His steadfast love endures forever."
3   Let the house of Aaron say,
       "His steadfast love endures forever."
4   Let those who fear the Lord say,
       "His steadfast love endures forever."

5   Out of my distress I called on the Lord;
       the Lord answered me and set me free.
6   The Lord is on my side; I will not fear.
        What can man do to me?
7   The Lord is on my side as my helper;
        I shall look in triumph on those who hate me.

8   It is better to take refuge in the Lord
        than to trust in man.
9   It is better to take refuge in the Lord
        than to trust in princes.

10  All nations surrounded me;
        in the name of the Lord I cut them off!
11  They surrounded me, surrounded me on every side;
        in the name of the Lord I cut them off!
12  They surrounded me like bees;
        they went out like a fire among thorns;
        in the name of the Lord I cut them off!
13  I was pushed hard, so that I was falling,
        but the Lord helped me.

14  The Lord is my strength and my song;
        he has become my salvation.
15  Glad songs of salvation
        are in the tents of the righteous:
     "The right hand of the Lord does valiantly,
16     the right hand of the Lord exalts,
        the right hand of the Lord does valiantly!"

17  I shall not die, but I shall live,
        and recount the deeds of the Lord.
18  The Lord has disciplined me severely,
        but he has not given me over to death.

19  Open to me the gates of righteousness,
        that I may enter through them
        and give thanks to the Lord.
20  This is the gate of the Lord;
        the righteous shall enter through it.
21  I thank you that you have answered me
        and have become my salvation.
22  The stone that the builders rejected
        has become the cornerstone.
23  This is the Lord's doing;
        it is marvelous in our eyes.
24  This is the day that the Lord has made;
        let us rejoice and be glad in it.

25  Save us, we pray, O Lord!
        O Lord, we pray, give us success!

26  Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!
        We bless you from the house of the Lord.
27  The Lord is God,
        and he has made his light to shine upon us.
     Bind the festal sacrifice with cords,
        up to the horns of the altar!

28  You are my God, and I will give thanks to you;
        you are my God; I will extol you.
29  Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;
        for his steadfast love endures forever!


 

Empty Grave

 


Christ Arose

Low in the grave he lay
Jesus, my Savior!
Waiting the coming day
Jesus, my Lord!

   Up from the grave he arose
   With a mighty triumph o'er his foes
   He arose a Victor from the dark domain
   And he lives forever with his saints to reign
   He arose! He arose!
   Hallelujah! Christ arose!

Vainly they watch his bed
Jesus, my Savior!
Vainly they seal the dead
Jesus, my Lord!

   Chorus

Death cannot keep his prey
Jesus, my Savior!
He tore the bars away
Jesus, my Lord!


Christ the Lord is Risen Today

Christ the Lord is risen today, Alleluia!
Sons of men and angels say, Alleluia!
Raise your joys and triumphs high, Alleluia!
Sing, ye heavens, and earth reply, Alleluia!

Love's redeeming work is done, Alleluia!
Fought the fight, the battle won, Alleluia!
Death in vain forbids him rise, Alleluia!
Christ has opened Paradise, Alleluia!

Lives again our glorious King, Alleluia!
Where, O death, is now thy sting, Alleluia!
Dying once he all doth save, Alleluia!
Where thy victory, O grave, Alleluia!

Soar we now where Christ has led, Alleluia!
Following our exalted Head, Alleluia!
Made like him, like him we rise, Alleluia!
Ours the cross, the grave, the skies, Alleluia!


Ain't No Grave

O my Lord, it's a winding road
It's all bent from a heavy load
Feel the weight beneath the ground
Ain't no grave gonna hold me down

O my Lord, I can barely sing
Waiting for you and your reckoning
Angels humming, can you hear the sound
Ain't no grave gonna hold me down
Ain't no grave gonna hold me down

   I will rise, I will rise, I will rise, I will rise
   Troubles come for everyone
   Death has no respect for love
   Roll that stone I won't be found
   Ain't no grave gonna hold me down

Lord, I'm crooked from head to toe
Got dirty hands and a dirty soul
I was lost but now I'm found
Ain't no grave gonna hold me down
Ain't no grave gonna hold me down

   Chorus

Woah, Woah, Woah
Feel the weight beneath the ground
Ain't no grave gonna hold me down

   Chorus

Woah, Woah, Woah
Ain't no grave gonna hold me down
Ain't no grave gonna hold me down


Have You Heard the Good News?
Easter Sunday, 2022
John 20:1-18
Steve Gilbertson

What a roller coaster week it had been! On Sunday past, they had basked in 
the adulation of the crowds as Jesus rode into Jerusalem. At last! Jesus would 
take his place as God's anointed King. But within a few days the crowd had
turned against them. Jesus was betrayed, condemned, and crucified just
Before Sabbath. Now it is Sunday, and their world was about to be rocked
again. And this time, the Good News really WOULD rock the world!

John 20:1-18

20 Now on the first day of the week Mary Magdalene came to the tomb early, while
it was still dark, and saw that the stone had been taken away from the tomb. 2 So
she ran and went to Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one whom Jesus loved,
and said to them, "They have taken the Lord out of the tomb, and we do not know
where they have laid him." 3 So Peter went out with the other disciple, and they 
were going toward the tomb. 4 Both of them were running together, but the other
disciple outran Peter and reached the tomb first. 5 And stooping to look in, he saw
the linen cloths lying there, but he did not go in. 6 Then Simon Peter came, following
him, and went into the tomb. He saw the linen cloths lying there, 7 and the face cloth,
which had been on Jesus' head, not lying with the linen cloths but folded up in a place
by itself. 8 Then the other disciple, who had reached the tomb first, also went in, and
he saw and believed; 9 for as yet they did not understand the Scripture, that he must
rise from the dead. 10 Then the disciples went back to their homes.

11 But Mary stood weeping outside the tomb, and as she wept she stooped to look into
the tomb. 12 And she saw two angels in white, sitting where the body of Jesus had lain, 
one at the head and one at the feet. 13 They said to her, "Woman, why are you weeping?" 
She said to them, "They have taken away my Lord, and I do not know where they have
laid him." 14 Having said this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing, but she did 
not know that it was Jesus. 15 Jesus said to her, "Woman, why are you weeping? Whom
are you seeking?" Supposing him to be the gardener, she said to him, "Sir, if you have
carried him away, tell me where you have laid him, and I will take him away." 16 Jesus
said to her, "Mary." She turned and said to him in Aramaic, "Rabboni!" (which means
Teacher). 17 Jesus said to her, "Do not cling to me, for I have not yet ascended to the 
Father; but go to my brothers and say to them, 'I am ascending to my Father and your
Father, to my God and your God.'" 18 Mary Magdalene went and announced to the 
disciples, "I have seen the Lord"- and that he had said these things to her.
