Sunday service – Easter Sunday
Passage: Isaiah 25:6-9; Acts 19:34-43; Mark 16:1-8
Service Type:


Thine be the glory,

Risen, conquering Son,

Endless is the victory

Thou o'er death hast won;

Angels in bright raiment

Rolled the stone away,

Kept the folded grave-clothes

Where thy body lay.


Thine be the glory,

Risen, conquering Son;

Endless is the victory

Thou o'er death hast won!


Lo, Jesus meets us,

Risen from the tomb;

Lovingly he greets us,

Scatters fear and gloom;

Let the Church with gladness

Hymns of triumph sing,

For her Lord now liveth,

Death hath lost its sting.



No more we doubt thee,

Glorious Prince of life;

Life is naught without thee:

Aid us in our strife;

Make us more than conquerors

Through thy deathless love;

Bring us safe through Jordan

To thy home above:


Translator: Richard Birch Hoyle (1875-1939)

And can it be that I should gain

an interest in the Saviour's blood?

Died he for me, who caused his pain?

For me, who him to death pursued?

Amazing love! How can it be

that thou, my God, shouldst die for me?


'Tis mystery all: the Immortal dies!

Who can explore his strange design?

In vain the first-born seraph tries

to sound the depths of love divine.

'Tis mercy all! Let earth adore,

let angel minds enquire no more.


He left his Father's throne above —

so free, so infinite his grace —

emptied himself of all but love,

and bled for Adam's helpless race.

'Tis mercy all, immense and free;

for, O my God, it found out me!


Long my imprisoned spirit lay

fast bound in sin and nature's night;

thine eye diffused a quickening ray;

I woke, the dungeon flamed with light;

my chains fell off, my heart was free,

I rose, went forth, and followed thee.


No condemnation now I dread;

Jesus, and all in him, is mine!

Alive in him, my living Head,

and clothed in righteousness divine,

bold I approach the eternal throne,

and claim the crown, through Christ, my own

Charles Wesley (1738)
