A liturgy of sorts

Based on the idea that newness of life is possible in Christ and a few verses from Romans 8, I wrote this in the prayer room at church this evening. (In a group, the bold would be said by everyone, the not bold by the leader)

Christ is risen

Hallelujah!

Christ is risen

Hallelujah!

Risen that we may live

Hallelujah!

Risen that we may have life

Hallelujah!

Christ is risen

He is risen indeed

In Him new life is found

He makes all things new

We live in Him

We live in Him

Who releases us from sin

We live in Him

Who makes hearts new

We live in Him

Who heals our wounds

We live in Him

Who wipes away our tears

We live in Him

Who controls all things

We live in Him

Who works best through weakness

We live in Him

Who who’s love we can’t escape

We live in Him

Who call us His children

The spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit who dwells in you

You did not receive the Spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!”

Abba! Father!

We cry to you:

Renew us we pray

Abba! Father!

We cry to you:

Fill us with your Spirit

Abba! Father!

We cry to you:

Set us free

Abba! Father!

We live by you

Christ is risen

We rise with Him

Christ is risen

Hallelujah!
