A dawn service on Easter Day

This short service is usually held at 7am on Outwood Common. This year, like last night’s lighting of the new fire, it was filmed in the Rectory garden

The hymn ‘Jesus Christ is risen today’ is sung
Recorded remotely and specially mixed together for this service by Ginette and Peter Nye and Steve and Gill Robinson

Jesus Christ is risen today, Alleluia!
Our triumphant holy day, Alleluia!
Who did once, upon the cross, Alleluia!
suffer to redeem our loss. Alleluia!

Hymns of praise then let us sing, Alleluia!
unto Christ, our heavenly King, Alleluia!
Who endured the cross and grave, Alleluia!
sinners to redeem and save. Alleluia!

But the pains that He endured, Alleluia!
our salvation have procured, Alleluia!
now above the sky He’s King, Alleluia!
where the angels ever sing: Alleluia!
