Refrain: ||: (4x) Alleluia! :||
1. Now he is living, the Christ
out of the tomb he is risen.
He has conquered death,
opened heaven to all believers.
2. Christ is the first fruits from death,
filling the church with his glory!
in the light of his power.
Sending forth verses:
3. Now with the strength of your Word,
send us to be your disciples:
To bring all the world
to the joy of your kingdom.
4. Fed with the Bread of new life,
filled with the wine of compassion,
send us out to serve
all the world in your name.
5. Now make us steadfast in faith,
joyful in hope of Christ's coming,
and by unity
let your love fill our lives.
