Easter Monday, April 2, 2018 Psalm 100:5
The Lord is good. His steadfast love endures forever. His faithfulness lasts to all generations. The Lord reigns. The Lord lives. Great is His faithfulness.
For the LORD [is] good; his mercy [is] everlasting;
and his truth [endureth] to all generations.
He declares that we should never be weary in praising
him, seeing his mercies toward us last forever.
Hymn: Thanks to Thee, O Christ, Victorious (Lutheran Service Book 548:1)
Thanks to Thee, O Christ, victorious!
Thanks to Thee, O Lord of Life!
Death hath now no power o’er us,
Thou hast conquered in the strife.
Thanks because Thou didst arise
And has opened paradise!
None can fully sing the glory
Of the resurrection story.
We rejoice in thee, O Lord everlasting, with gladness and exultation, beseeching Thee, that while the gates of our hearts are thrown open in Thy praise, they may also be flung wide to receive Thy mercy and truth; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with Thee and the Holy Ghost, One God, world without end. Amen. 1
Praise God. His mercy endures forever, and His faithfulness to all generations. “The Lord is God” and “The Lord is Good.” Let the whole earth sing and be glad.
O God, in the paschal feat You restore all creation. Continue to send Your heavenly gifts upon Your people that they may walk in perfect freedom and receive eternal life; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen 2
