Grace and Peace to you.
God of life made new, made new,
raise me up this day.
Easter morning, dawn in me;
loving Christ, live, new, in me.
Light of new Creation,
spread throughout my soul.
Confident morning of hope and faith,
be my new and only world.
All that would entomb my love,
all fear and pain, all doubt and shame
you have undone with love,
and rolled the stone;
the light of love floods in.
I am set free.
God of love, surpass all possibility;
love be my only power, my deepest trust,
my courage to hope, to gently bless
in the face of all evil and death.
My grave is open, by your grace:
it is open to receive, but cannot hold.
Awaken me, this new-created day,
O God of love, of life.
O anxious soul, still wrapped in death,
come out. Walk free. Walk free.
