Easter Sunday Resources – Updated for 2021

by Christine Sine

As we think about Easter Sunday, my thoughts focus on the hope and long for God’s eternal world that we glimpse so dimly at the moment. We are prisoners of hope, believing that one day God’s resurrection will break into our world in all its fullness.

Hold your head high, Christ has risen.
Rejoice and shout,
Christ has come calling us home.
Home to the heart of God,
Home to God’s living presence,
Home to God’s banquet feast.
Hold your head high, Christ has risen.
Death has been conquered,
Christ has come calling us home.
All that was broken has been made whole,
All that was dislocated has been set right,
All that was oppressed has been set free.
Hold your head high, Christ has risen,
Bringing God’s healing,
Christ has come calling us home.
Redemption is complete,
God’s eternal world has begun,
Love reigns over all,
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah,
Christ has risen calling us home.

Christ is Risen: The world below lies desolate
Christ is Risen: The spirits of evil are fallen
Christ is Risen: The angels of God are rejoicing
Christ is Risen: The tombs of the dead are empty
Christ is Risen indeed from the dead,
the first of the sleepers,
Glory and power are his forever and ever
St. Hippolytus (AD 190-236)

Easter at Home: 2021

Prayers and Resources

Music to Reflect On

First from Taize community:
Let nothing disturb you
Let nothing disturb you,
let nothing frighten you,
everything passes,

A beautiful Celtic Alleluia

Sheila Hamil shared these videos with us for the Easter Season (used with permission):

A couple of my favourite Easter hymns:

And a very different Hallelujah by Leonard Cohen – well worth reflecting on at this season.
