Words to the Profession of Faith
[based on 1 Corinthians 15:3-7; Colossians 1:15-20]
Leader: This is the good news that we have received, in which we stand, and by which we are saved:
All: Christ died for our sins, was buried, was raised on the third day, and appeared first to the women, then to Peter and the Twelve, and then to many faithful witnesses. We believe Jesus is the Christ, the Anointed One of God, the firstborn of all creation, the firstborn from the dead, in whom all things hold together, in whom the fullness of God was pleased to dwell by the power of the Spirit. Christ is the head of the body, the church, and by the blood of the cross reconciles all things to God. Amen.

'Christ, the Lord, is risen today!' Hallelujah!
All creation join to say: Hallelujah!
Raise your joys and triumphs high; Hallelujah!
Sing, you heavens, and earth reply: Hallelujah!
Lives again our glorious King; Hallelujah!
Where, O death, is now your sting? Hallelujah!
Once he died, our souls to save; Hallelujah!
Where's your victory, boasting grave? Hallelujah!
Love's redeeming work is done! Hallelujah!
Fought the fight, the battle won: Hallelujah!
Death in vain forbids him rise. Hallelujah!
Christ has opened paradise: Hallelujah!
Soar we now where Christ has led; Hallelujah!
Following our exalted Head; Hallelujah!
Made like him, like him we rise; Hallelujah!
Ours the cross, the grave, the skies: Hallelujah!
