Morning Prayer

Morning Prayer
Easter Season
Sunday, 26 April 2020
Second Sunday of Easter
O Lord, open our lips
All and our mouth shall proclaim your praise.

In your resurrection, O Christ,
All let heaven and earth rejoice. Alleluia.

Blessed are you, Lord God of our salvation,
to you be praise and glory for ever.
As once you ransomed your people from Egypt
and led them to freedom in the promised land,
so now you have delivered us from the dominion of darkness
and brought us into the kingdom of your risen Son.
May we, the first fruits of your new creation,
rejoice in this new day you have made,
and praise you for your mighty acts.
Blessed be God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
All Blessed be God for ever.

Hymn: Lord Enthroned in Heavenly Splendour

The night has passed, and the day lies open before us;
let us pray with one heart and mind.

Silence is kept.

As we rejoice in the gift of this new day,
so may the light of your presence, O God,
set our hearts on fire with love for you;
now and for ever.
All Amen.

Death is swallowed up in victory.
All  Where, O death, is your sting?

Christ is risen from the dead,
the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep.
All Death is swallowed up in victory.

The trumpet will sound
and the dead shall be raised.
All Where, O death, is your sting?

We shall not all sleep,
but we shall be changed.
All Death is swallowed up in victory.
Where, O death, is your sting?
from 1 Corinthians 15

The Lord is risen from the tomb
who for our sakes hung upon the tree. Alleluia.
Blessed be the Lord the God of Israel, 
who has come to his people and set them free.
He has raised up for us a mighty Saviour, 
born of the house of his servant David.
Through his holy prophets God promised of old 
to save us from our enemies,
from the hands of all that hate us,
To show mercy to our ancestors, 
and to remember his holy covenant.
This was the oath God swore to our father Abraham: 
to set us free from the hands of our enemies,
Free to worship him without fear, 
holy and righteous in his sight
all the days of our life.
And you, child, shall be called the prophet of the Most High, 
for you will go before the Lord to prepare his way,
To give his people knowledge of salvation 
by the forgiveness of all their sins.
In the tender compassion of our God 
the dawn from on high shall break upon us,
To shine on those who dwell in darkness and the shadow of death, 
and to guide our feet into the way of peace.
Luke 1.68-79

All Glory to the Father and to the Son
and to the Holy Spirit;
as it was in the beginning is now
and shall be for ever. Amen.

All The Lord is risen from the tomb
who for our sakes hung upon the tree. Alleluia.

The Collect
Lord of all life and power,
who through the mighty resurrection of your Son
overcame the old order of sin and death
to make all things new in him:
grant that we, being dead to sin
and alive to you in Jesus Christ,
may reign with him in glory;
to whom with you and the Holy Spirit
be praise and honour, glory and might,
now and in all eternity.
All Amen.

All Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name;
thy kingdom come;
thy will be done;
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation;
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
the power and the glory,
for ever and ever.

May the risen Christ grant us the joys of eternal life.
All Amen.

Let us bless the Lord. Alleluia, alleluia.

All Thanks be to God. Alleluia, alleluia.
