humanity is made in your image;
you call us by name,
help us to always recognise your voice
and to respond willingly,
that we might witness to the resurrection.
This we pray through Jesus Christ,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and forever.
Our Father in heaven,
the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours
now and for ever.
you are our beginning and you will be our end;
we are made in your image and likeness.
We praise and thank you for this day.
This is the day on which you created light
and saw that it was good.
This is the day in whose early morning light
we discovered the tomb was empty,
and encountered Christ, the world’s true light.
For us your acts are gracious
and your love endures for ever.
