Resurrection is our Hope (04-17-22)


Christ The Lord is Risen

Words: Charles Wesley (altered)
Music: Paul Sjolund

Christ the Lord is ris’n indeed,
He has met His people’s need,
Raise your joys and triumphs high,
Sing, ye heav’ns and earth, reply,

Lives again our glorious King,
Where, O Death, is now thy sting?
Dying once He all doth save,
Where thy victory O grave?

Love’s redeeming work is done,
Fought the fight, the battle won,
Death in vain forbade Him rise,
Christ ascended o’er the skies,

Soar we now where Christ hath led,
Foll’wing our exalted Head,
Made like Him, like Him we rise,
Free from all the earthly ties,

You Are Good

By: Israel Houghton

Lord, You are good
And Your mercy endureth forever.

People from every nation and tongue,
From generation to generation…

We worship You!
Hallelujah, Hallelujah!
We worship You
For who You are; (x2)
Lord, You are good!

All Hail The Power of Jesus’ Name

Edward Perronet, John Rippon, & Oliver Holden

All hail the power of Jesus’ name!
Let angels prostrate fall.
Bring forth the royal diadem,
and crown him Lord of all.
Bring forth the royal diadem,
and crown him Lord of all!

O seed of Israel’s chosen race
now ransomed from the fall,
hail him who saves you by his grace,
and crown him Lord of all.
Hail him who saves you by his grace,
and crown him Lord of all!

Let every tongue and every tribe
responsive to his call,
to him all majesty ascribe,
and crown him Lord of all.
To him all majesty ascribe,
and crown him Lord of all!

Oh, that with all the sacred throng
we at his feet may fall!
We’ll join the everlasting song
and crown him Lord of all.
We’ll join the everlasting song
and crown him Lord of all.


Steven Furtick, Christopher Joel Brown, Mack Donald Iii Brock, Wade Joye, Matthews Thabo Ntlele

The Head that once was crowned with thorns
Is crowned with glory now;
The Savior knelt to wash our feet,
Now at His feet we bow.

The One who wore our sin and shame
Is robed in majesty;
The radiance of perfect love
Now shines for all to see.

Oh Christ, Your Cross
Is victory;
All praise will rise
To Christ our King. (x2)

The fear that held us now gives way
To Him who is our peace;
And “It is finished!” was His cry,
From death comes victory.

In Your Spirit I’m alive
And now You’re alive in me,
The resurrected King
Is resurrecting me;
Lord, Your Spirit gives me life,
Now from sin and death I’m free;
The resurrected King
Is resurrecting me.

The tomb where soldiers watched in vain
Was borrowed for three days;
His body there would not remain,
He walked out from that grave;
He walked out from that grave!

Life! Life! Eternal Life!

William Leslie

Under the burdens of guilt and care
Many a spirit is grieving,
Who in the joy of the Lord might share,
Life everlasting receiving.

Life! Life! Eternal life!
Jesus alone is the Giver;
Life! Life! Abundant life!
Glory to Jesus forever!

Burdened one, why will you longer bear
Sorrows from which He releases?
Open your heart, and rejoicing, share
Life more abundant in Jesus.

Leaving the mountain, the streamlet grows,
Flooding the vale with a river;
So from the hill of the Cross there flows
Life more abundant for ever.

Oh, for the floods on the thirsty land!
Oh, for a mighty revival!
Oh, for a sanctified, fearless band!
Ready to hail its arrival.

Peter Denies the Lord

Mark 14:66–72
66 And as Peter was below in the courtyard, one of the servant girls of the high priest came, 67 and seeing Peter warming himself, she looked at him and said, “You also were with the Nazarene, Jesus.” 68 But he denied it, saying, “I neither know nor understand what you mean.” And he went out into the gateway and the rooster crowed. 69 And the servant girl saw him and began again to say to the bystanders, “This man is one of them.” 70 But again he denied it. And after a little while the bystanders again said to Peter, “Certainly you are one of them, for you are a Galilean.” 71 But he began to invoke a curse on himself and to swear, “I do not know this man of whom you speak.” 72 And immediately the rooster crowed a second time. And Peter remembered how Jesus had said to him, “Before the rooster crows twice, you will deny me three times.” And he broke down and wept.

God lays on Christ the Iniquities of us all

Isaiah 53:2–6
   For he grew up before him like a young plant,
and like a root out of dry ground;
he had no form or majesty that we should look at him,
and no beauty that we should desire him.
   He was despised and rejected by men,
a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief;
and as one from whom men hide their faces
he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
   Surely he has borne our griefs
and carried our sorrows;
yet we esteemed him stricken,
smitten by God, and afflicted.
   But he was pierced for our transgressions;
he was crushed for our iniquities;
upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace,
and with his wounds we are healed.
   All we like sheep have gone astray;
we have turned—every one—to his own way;
and the Lord has laid on him
the iniquity of us all.

Jesus Resurrects and Appears to Many

Mark 16:1–13
When the Sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices, so that they might go and anoint him. And very early on the first day of the week, when the sun had risen, they went to the tomb. And they were saying to one another, “Who will roll away the stone for us from the entrance of the tomb?” And looking up, they saw that the stone had been rolled back—it was very large. And entering the tomb, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, dressed in a white robe, and they were alarmed. And he said to them, “Do not be alarmed. You seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He has risen; he is not here. See the place where they laid him. But go, tell his disciples and Peter that he is going before you to Galilee. There you will see him, just as he told you.” And they went out and fled from the tomb, for trembling and astonishment had seized them, and they said nothing to anyone, for they were afraid.

Now when he rose early on the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, from whom he had cast out seven demons. 10 She went and told those who had been with him, as they mourned and wept. 11 But when they heard that he was alive and had been seen by her, they would not believe it.

12 After these things he appeared in another form to two of them, as they were walking into the country. 13 And they went back and told the rest, but they did not believe them.

Jesus Commissions His Followers

Mark 16:14–20
14 Afterward he appeared to the eleven themselves as they were reclining at table, and he rebuked them for their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they had not believed those who saw him after he had risen. 15 And he said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation. 16 Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned. 17 And these signs will accompany those who believe: in my name they will cast out demons; they will speak in new tongues; 18 they will pick up serpents with their hands; and if they drink any deadly poison, it will not hurt them; they will lay their hands on the sick, and they will recover.”

19 So then the Lord Jesus, after he had spoken to them, was taken up into heaven and sat down at the right hand of God. 20 And they went out and preached everywhere, while the Lord worked with them and confirmed the message by accompanying signs.
