-- Prelude --


Ave Verum

by W. A. Mozart (1756 - 1791)



In keeping with our regional
Montreal council, Nakonha:ka, we are at our capacity with the ten in attendance today.
But those few you see are not all we are...













Jesus Christ Is Risen Today (VU 155)

Jesus Christ is risen today, Hallelujah
Our triumphant holy day, Hallelujah!
Who did once upon the cross Hallelujah!
Suffer to redeem our loss. Hallelujah!




Hymns of praise then let us sing Hallelujah!
Unto Christ our heavenly King, Hallelujah!
Who endured the cross and grave, Hallelujah!
Sinners to redeem and save. Hallelujah!


 
But the pains which he endured, Hallelujah!
Our salvation have procured; Hallelujah!
Now above the sky he's King, Hallelujah!
Where the angels ever sing. Hallelujah!



Sing we to our God above, Hallelujah!
Praise eternal as his love; Hallelujah!
Praise him, all ye heavenly host, Hallelujah!
Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Hallelujah!

This Joyful Eastertide

(VU 177)

This joyful Eastertide
Away with sin and sorrow!
My love, the crucified,
Hath sprung to life this morrow.

Refrain:
Had Christ, who once was slain,
Ne'er burst his three-day prison,
Our faith had been in vain.
But now hath Christ arisen,
Arisen, arisen, arisen.



My flesh in hope shall rest
And for a season slumber
Till trump from east to west
Shall wake the dead in number.
Refrain



Death's flood hath lost its chill
Since Jesus crossed the river.
Lover of souls, from ill
My passing soul deliver.
Refrain




A New End to the Story

And praise the Spirit, three-in-one:

Hallelujah, hallelujah!

Give thanks to the risen Christ,
Hallelujah, hallelujah,
Give praise to God's name

First born of all creation. Refrain.

Now we shall live forever. Refrain.

Joyfully sing to our Saviour. Refrain.

Prayers of the People




Thine Is The Glory (VU 173

Thine is the glory, risen, conqu'ring Son:
Endless is the victory
Thou o'er death hast won.
Angels in bright raiment
Rolled the stone away,
Kept the folded grave-clothes
Where the body lay.

Thine is the glory,
Risen, conquering Son
Endless is the victory
Thou o'er death hast won.



Lo, Jesus meets us,
Risen from the tomb.
Lovingly He greets us,
Scatters fear and gloom.
Let the church with gladness
Hymns of triumph sing,
For the Lord now liveth:
Death hath lost its sting.

Refrain

No more we doubt Thee,
Glorious Prince of life;
Life is nought without thee:
Aid us in our strife;
Make us more than conquerors,
Through thy deathless love;
Bring us safe through Jordan
To thy home above.

Refrain







Common Blessing
(from More Voices)

This is the day that God has made;
We will rejoice and be glad!
This is the day that God has made;
We will rejoice and be glad!
Singing hallelu, singing hallelu,
Singing hallelu!
We will rejoice and be glad!
Singing hallelu, singing hallelu,
Singing hallelu!
We will rejoice and be glad!




Samuel Wesley
1766 - 1837



Andante Maestoso

(No. 4 from 14 Short Pieces For Organ.)
 



And, of course, a couple of 'closers' to send us on our way...
Sing it out to your neighbours!




What A Friend We Have In Jesus
(VU 664)

What a friend we have in Jesus
All our sins and griefs to bear!
What a privilege to carry
Everything to God in prayer

Oh, what peace we often forfeit
Oh, what needless pain we bear
All because we do not carry
Everything to God in prayer.

Have we trials and temptations?
Is there trouble anywhere?
We should never be discouraged
Take it to the Lord in prayer.



Nearer, My God, to Thee
(VU 496)

Nearer, my God, to thee,
Nearer to thee!
Even though it be a cross
That raiseth me.
Still all my song shall be
Nearer, my God, to thee,
Nearer, my God, to thee,
Nearer to thee!

Though like the wanderer,
The sun gone down,
Darkness be over me,
My rest a stone,
Yet in my dreams I'd be
Nearer, my God, to thee,
Nearer, my God, to thee,
Nearer to thee!



There let the way appear,
Steps unto heaven;
All that thou sendest me,
In mercy given;
Angels to beckon me
Nearer, my God, to thee,
Nearer, my God, to thee,
Nearer to thee!
