Christ the Lord is risen today. Alleluia!

Lord of life, You defeated death to show that we can rise from all that binds us to the world—pride, envy, anger, fear—the debt of sin that holds us here. Christ the Lord is risen today! Alleluia!
Lord, the resurrection of Your son has given us a new life and renewed hope. Help us to live as new people in pursuit of the Christian ideal.—New Saint Joseph People's Prayer Book
