ANTHEM: Tell Abroad His Rising by Eugene Butler
Tell abroad of His rising! Christ is risen! Tell abroad His rising, celebrate His victory, proclaim His mighty love! From His three-day prison, Christ has burst the bands of death, new life and hope now springs anew; love mounts the throne as King. Death forever is vanquished and overcome! Christ comes forth triumphant, love is victorious for all eternity.
HYMN: O for a Thousand Tongues to Sing [Azmon]
RESPONSE: I Love to Tell the Story by Benjamin Kornelis
I love to tell the story of unseen things above, of Jesus and his glory, of Jesus and his love. I love to tell the story because I know ‘tis true; it satisfies my longings as nothing else can do. I love to tell the story; ‘twill be my theme in glory to tell the old, old story of Jesus and his love. I love to tell the story; ‘tis pleasant to repeat what seems, each time I tell it, more wonderfully sweet. I love to tell the story, for some have never heard the message of salvation from God’s own holy Word. I love to tell the story for those who know it best seem hungering and thirsting to hear it like the rest. And when, in scenes, in scenes of glory, I sing the new, new song, ‘twill be the old, old story that I have loved so long. I love to tell it, to tell the story; Oh, I love to tell it, to tell the story. I love to tell, to tell the story of Jesus and his love! [A. Katherine Hankey]
