L: This is the day:
P: when tears are wiped away;
shattered hearts are mended;
fears are replaced with joy.
L: This is the day the Lord:
P: rolls away the stone of fear;
throw’s off death’s clothes;
goes ahead of us into God’s future.
L: This is the day the Lord has made:
P: 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.
L: This is the day – Easter Day!
P: Christ is Risen! Hallelujah!
