Call to Worship (3) | Easter Sunday (Year C)

This is the day:
when tears are wiped away;
shattered hearts are mended;
fears are replaced with joy.

This is the day the Lord:
rolls away the stone of fear;
throw’s off death’s clothes;
goes ahead of us into God’s future.

This is the day the Lord has made:
death has no fear for us;
sin has lost it’s power over us;
God opens the tombs of our hearts
to fill us with life.

This is the day – Easter Day!
Christ is Risen! Hallelujah!
