Easter Wednesday Invitation
Al-le-lu-ia! Christ is ris-en.
The Lord is ris-en in-deed. Al-le-lu-ia!
O give thanks to the Lord, and call upon his Name;
make known his deeds a-mong the peoples.
Thus says the high and loft-y One
who in-hab-its e-ter-ni-ty,
whose name is Ho-ly,
I dwell in the high and ho-ly place
and al-so with the one who has a con-trite and hum-ble spir-it,
to re-vive the spir-it of the hum-ble and to re-vive the heart of the con-trite.
Lord, o-pen our lips.
And our mouth shall pro-claim your praise.
Glo-ry to the Fa-ther, and to the Son,
and to the Ho-ly Spir-it:
as it was in the be-gin-ning, is now,
and will be for ev-er. A-men.

Al-le-lu-ia. Christ our Pass-o-ver has been sac-ri-ficed for us;
there-fore let us keep the feast,
Not with old leav-en, the leav-en of mal-ice and e-vil,
but with the un-leav-ened bread of sin-cer-i-ty and truth. Al-le-lu-ia.
Christ be-ing raised from the dead will nev-er die a-gain;
death no long-er has do-min-ion o-ver him.
The death that he died, he died to sin, once for all;
but the life he lives, he lives to God.
So al-so con-sid-er yourselves dead to sin,
and a-live to God in Je-sus Christ our Lord. Al-le-lu-ia.
Christ has been raised from the dead,
the first fruits of those who have fall-en a-sleep.
For since by a man came death,
by a man has come al-so the res-ur-rec-tion of the dead.
For as in Ad-am all die,
so in Christ shall all be made a-live. Al-le-lu-ia.
