Sunday, 19 April 2020 – Ros Hancock
Welcome to our worship for this week. We are grateful to Val and Eric for reading the lessons this week.
We were unable to find a version of “He is Lord” we could embed, so with many apologies, you will hear the Hancock choir lead that hymn.

Hymn 1 – Singing the Faith – 311 – The day of resurrection
1. The day of resurrection! Earth, spread the news abroad;
The Paschal feast of gladness, the Paschal feast of God.
From death to life eternal, from earth to heaven’s height,
Our Saviour Christ has brought us, the glorious Lord of Light.
2. Our hearts be free from evil, that we may see aright
The Saviour resurrected in his eternal light,
And hear his message plainly, delivered calm and clear:
“Rejoice with me in triumph; Be glad and do not fear.”
3. Now let the heavens be joyful, and earth the song begin.
The whole world keep high triumph, and all that is therein.
Let all things in creation their notes of gladness blend,
For Christ the Lord is risen, our joy that hath no end.

Hymn 3 – Singing the Faith – 348 – He is Lord, He is Lord
He is Lord, he is Lord;
He is risen from the dead and he is Lord;
Every knee shall bow, every tongue confess
that Jesus Christ is Lord.
He is King, he is King;
He will draw all nations to him he is King;
And the time shall be when the world shall sing
that Jesus Christ is King.
He is love, He is love;
He has shown us by his life that he is love;
All his people sing with one voice of joy
that Jesus Christ is love.
He is life, he is life;
He has died to set us free and he is life;
And He calls us all to live evermore,
for Jesus Christ is life.
