A Prayer for Easter

(After the first letter of St Peter)

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ!
By his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope,
through the resurrection of Jesus from the dead,
and into an inheritance which cannot perish or be defiled,
nor can it ever fade away.
So let us rejoice!

Easter Prayer – Christ is Risen!

(St. Hippolytus of Rome, 170 – 235 AD)

Christ is Risen: The world below lies desolate
Christ is Risen: The spirits of evil are fallen
Christ is Risen: The angels of God are rejoicing
Christ is Risen: The tombs of the dead are empty
Christ is Risen indeed from the dead,
the first of the sleepers,
Glory and power are his forever and ever.
