L  The stone that sealed Jesus' tomb has been removed.

P  The wrappings that held Jesus' body lie empty.

L  The tomb lies empty.

P  Death cannot hold Jesus our Savior.

L  And through his power, death cannot hold us either.

P  He died that we might live, and lives that we might never die.

L.  We are freed even from the little deaths.

P  Little deaths of fear and anxiety and worry and terror

L  We are freed from the deaths of doubt and dismay.

P  But above all we are freed from the death of the body

L  Through the Resurrection, we are victorious over the decay and end of the physical.

P  Thus we shout Hallelujah Hallelujah.

L  Christ is Risen!

P  He is Risen indeed!
