1. Call to Worship: Psalm 98:1

Sing a new song to the Lord,
for he has done wonderful deeds.
His right hand has won a mighty victory;
his holy arm has shown his saving power!

2. The War is Won – Words: Joseph Hart, Additional Lyrics: Patrick Miller and David A. Cover, Music: The Crossing Music

Jesus once for sinners slain,
from the dead is raised again.
Cheerful let us raise our voice;
we have reason to rejoice.


The war is won, though battles rage.
Our risen King will end this age.
Until that day, stand in hope
of love that will forever flow.

3. Scripture Reading: Hebrews 12:2-3

We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith. Because of the joy awaiting him, he endured the cross, disregarding its shame. Now he is seated in the place of honor beside God’s throne. Think of all the hostility he endured from sinful people; then you won’t become weary and give up.

4. O Praise The Name (Anástasis) by Marty Sampson, Benjamin Hastings & Dean Ussher

Then on the third at break of dawn,
the Son of heaven rose again.
O trampled death where is your sting?
The angels roar for Christ the King!

O praise the Name of the Lord our God.
O praise His Name forevermore.
For endless days we will sing Your praise,
Oh Lord, oh Lord, our God.

5. There is a Day by Nathan Fellingham

There is a day that all creation’s waiting for
a day of freedom and liberation for the Earth.
And on that day the Lord will come to meet His bride
and when we see Him, in an instant we’ll be changed.

The trumpet sounds and the dead will then be raised
by His power never to perish again.
Once only flesh now clothed with immortality
death has now been swallowed up in victory.

6. Christ is Risen by Matt Maher and Mia Fieldes, Arrangement by The Crossing Music

Beneath the weight of all our sin
You bowed to none but heavens will.
No scheme of hell, no scoffer’s crown,
no burden great can hold you down,
In strength you reign.
Forever let Your church proclaim,

Christ is risen from the dead
trampling over death by death.
Come awake, come awake!
Come and rise up from the grave.

7. The Mystery of Faith – Words: Traditional english liturgy, Music by Scott Johnson

Christ has died,
Christ has risen,
Christ will come again.

8. Revelation Song by Jennie Lee Riddle

Worthy is the Lamb who was slain,
holy, holy is he.
Sing a new song to Him who sits on
heaven’s mercy seat.

Holy, holy, holy
is the Lord, God Almighty
Who was, and is, and is to come.
