known through all generations.

that you established your faithfulness
in heaven itself.
Righteousness and justice are
the foundation of your throne;
love and faithfulness go before you.

to acclaim you,
who walk in the light of your

Selected verse from Psalm 89
O Most Holy God, we have celebrated the greatest battle defeat of all time–once and for all Christ took the power away from sin, death and Satan over our lives. His resurrection from the dead opened Heaven’s door for all who believe on His name. We rejoice in His victory and give you all glory, thanks and praise! Thank you for this Calvary Love which sustains us in our weakness and gives us strength to live for you. In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.
Easter triumph, Easter joy!
This alone can sin destroy;
From sins’ power, Lord, set us free,
Newborn souls in you to be.
