Lord, how are we to respond to this day?

When tombs do not stay sealed;

when dead and immobile bodies walk into the daylight;

and people who were gone are alive again;

anything is possible.


We have no frame of reference for this – no logical explanation

to make resurrection a normal everyday occurrence

And yet, that’s exactly what it is now –

ever since You refused to remain a victim of the grave.

And suddenly we can see it – resurrection is everywhere!


You truly are alive – and Your life breaks out

in surprising ways and unexpected places

even in our own hearts and lives.


And so, Risen Jesus, Eternal and Abundant Life-Giver

We praise You, we celebrate You, we bow in awe

and we open our hearts again, that You, O King of Glory

may come in.
