This Is the Night

File:The Resurrection by Carl Heinrich Bloch, 1881.jpg ...


Father of Glory,
this is the night
in which your Son,
our Lord Jesus Christ
shook the earth,
opened heaven,
and defeated hell.
Calm our fears
with the good news
that he is risen indeed.
Fill our hearts
with the joy of his resurrection
and the peace of his forgiveness;
through Jesus Christ,
our living Savior,
who reigns in glory
with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and forever.
