Christ has been raised from the dead: the first fruits of those who sleep.
For as by man came death; by man has come also the resurrection of the dead; for as in Adam all die; even so in Christ shall be made alive.
1 Corinthians 15:20-22

Alleluia! Christ is risen!
He is risen indeed! Alleluia!

Collect

Almighty God,

whose Son Jesus Christ is the resurrection and the life:

raise us, who trust in him,

from the death of sin to the life of righteousness,

that we may seek those things which are above,

where he reigns with you

in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and for ever.

Post Communion

Merciful Father,

you gave your Son Jesus Christ to be the good shepherd,

and in his love for us to lay down his life and rise again:

keep us always under his protection,

and give us grace to follow in his steps;

through Jesus Christ our Lord.

who is alive and reigns with you,

in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and for ever.
