“Come to me, all you who sit in darkness
and in the shadow of death!”
On you has the light shone!
For Jesus Christ is the light of the world
and this is the story;
the light shines in the darkness
and the darkness could not put it out!
“I am the resurrection and the life.”
“I am the bright and morning star.”
This morning we join with the angels in their hymns of praise;
Glory to God in the highest
and on earth peace, Alleluia!
Christ is risen! He is risen indeed!
