Prelude: Voluntary

by Samuel Priestly Taylor



This Is the Day That God Has Made
(Hymn 175)

This is the day that God has made!
Rejoice! Rejoice! and be exceeding glad!
This is the day that God has made!
Rejoice! Rejoice! Hallelujah

Christ has conquered death at last,
Left the tomg that held him fast!
Risen now our Saviour, King,
Songs of gladness let us sing!

This is the day that God has made!
Rejoice! Rejoice! and be exceeding glad!
This is the day that God has made!
Rejoice! Rejoice! Hallelujah

Jesus lives who once was dead,
Lives forever, as he said!
Gone the sorrow, gone the night,
Dawns the morning clear and bright!

This is the day that God has made!
Rejoice! Rejoice! and be exceeding glad!
This is the day that God has made!
Rejoice! Rejoice! Hallelujah



Psalm 116
(page 836)

Refrain: How can I repay you, God,
For all the goodness you show to me?

I love you, God, because you heard my voice when I made supplication,
because you turned your ear to me,
when I called upon your name.

The cords of death entangled me,
and the pangs of the Grave laid hold on me;
I suffered distress and anguish.
Then I called upon the name of God:
“O God, I pray, save my life”. R

How can I repay you, God,
for all the good things you have done for me?
I will take up the cup of salvation,
and call upon the name of God.
I will pay my vows in the presence of all God's people. R

Precious in the sight of God is the death of the saints.
O God, I am your servant;
I am your servant, the child of your maidservant.
You have freed me from my bonds.
I will offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving,
and will call upon the name of God.
I will pay my vows to God in the presence of all God's people,
in the courts of the house of God, in your midst, O Jerusalem.     R

The Road to Emmaus



Luke 24: 13-35


As We Walked Home at Close of Day
(VU 184)

As we walked home at close of day,
A stranger joined us on our way.
He heard us speak of one who'd gone,
And when we stopped, he carried on.

“Why wander further without light?
Please stay with us this troubled night.
We've shared the truth of how we feel
And now would like to share a meal.”

We sat to eat our simple spread,
Then watched the stranger take the bread;
And, as he said the blessing prayer,
We knew that someone else was there.

No stranger he; it was our eyes
Which failed to see, in stranger's guise,
The Lord who, risen from the dead,
Met us when ready to be fed.

Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
As Mary and our sisters said,
The Lord is risen from the dead!





Sermon


A printed version of Scott's sermon can be found HERE.






Hymn 190

The head that once was crowned with thorns
Is crowned with glory now;
A royal diadem adorns
The mighty victor's brow.

The joy of all who dwell above,
The joy of all below,
To whom he manifests his love
And grants his name to know.

To them the cross, with all its shame,
With all its grace, is given,
Their name an everlasting name,
Their joy the joy of heaven.

They suffer here with Christ below,
They reign with him above,
Their profit and their joy to know
The mystery of his love.

The cross he bore is life and health,
Though shame and death to him,
His people's hope, his people's wealth,
Their everlasting theme.
