Litany of the Resurrection (1)

Lord, have mercy.
Christ, have mercy.
Lord, have mercy.

O Christ, hear us.

God, the Father in heaven, have mercy on us.
God, the Son, Redeemer of the world, have mercy on us.
God, the Holy Spirit, have mercy on us.

Holy Trinity, one God, have mercy on us.

Jesus, Redeemer of mankind,
Jesus, Conqueror of sin and Satan,
Jesus, triumphant over Death,
Jesus, the Holy and the Just,
Jesus, the Resurrection and the Life,
Jesus, the Giver of grace,
Jesus, the Judge of the world,
who laid down your life for your sheep,
who rose again the third day,
who showed yourself to your chosen,
appearing to Mary Magdalene while she wept,
sending your angels to the holy women,
comforting the Eleven,
saying to them, “Peace,”
breathing on them the Holy Spirit,
confirming the faith of Thomas,
commanding Peter to feed your lambs and sheep,
speaking of the Kingdom of God, have mercy on us.

We poor sinners pray, hear us, Lord God.

That we may walk in newness of life,
that we may advance in the knowledge of you,
that we may grow in grace,
that we may always have the bread of life,
that we may persevere to the end,
that we may have confidence before you at your coming,
that we may behold your face with joy,
that we may be placed at your right hand in the judgment,
that we may have our place with the saints,  hear us, good Lord.

Lamb of God, you take away the sin of the world; have mercy on us.
Lamb of God, you take away the sin of the world; have mercy on us.
Lamb of God, you take away the sin of the world; grant us your peace.

O Christ, hear us.

Lord, have mercy.
Christ, have mercy.
Lord, have mercy.
Amen.

Christ is risen, Alleluia.
He is risen indeed. Alleluia.

Let us pray

O God, by your only Son you overcame death and opened the way to eternal life for us. Confirm us by your grace, that we may always walk as your people who who have been redeemed from their sins; through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen.

An Easter Prayer

O Lord Jesus Christ,
you died for the sins of the whole world,
and on this day you rose from the dead.
By your Resurrection put the sin within us to death.
As you destroyed the power of death by your cross and passion,
share with us your blessed life;
through your merits, O blessed Savior,
you live and govern all things,
now and forever.
Amen.
