K-6: “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.
K-1: For the wages of sin is death.
K-1: So Jesus said to them again, “Peace to you! As the Father has sent Me, I also send you.”
6: Now after the Sabbath, as the first day of the week began to dawn, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary came to see the tomb. And behold, there was a great earthquake; for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat on it. His countenance was like lightning, and his clothing as white as snow. And the guards shook for fear of him, and became like dead men.
6: The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear? The LORD is the strength of my life; Of whom shall I be afraid? When the wicked came against me To eat up my flesh, My enemies and foes, They stumbled and fell. Though and army may encamp against me, My heart shall not fear; Though war should rise against me, In this I will be confident.

K-6: And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be taxed. (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.) And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city. And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:) To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child. And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered. And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.
6: Now it was the third hour, and they crucified Him. And the inscription of His accusation was written above: THE KING OF THE JEWS. With Him they also crucified two robbers, one on His right and the other on His left. So the Scripture was fulfilled which says, “And He was numbered with the transgressors.” And those who passed by blasphemed Him, wagging their heads and saying, “Aha! You who destroy the temple and build it in three days, save Yourself, and come down from the cross!”
Recite: Thursday, April 22 Hymnology
K-1: Joy to the world, the Lord is come! Let earth receive her King;
Let every heart prepare Him room And heav’n and nature sing,
And heav’n and nature sing, And heav’n, and heav’n and nature sing.
6-8: On the third day, when the stone was rolled away,
There was nothing but an empty bed.
The disciples missed what was meant by all of this.
“Someone must have taken Him,” they said.
But the Lord appeared, and the doubting cleared;
Christ alive, for all to see.
And the pow’r of sin was destroyed in death by Him;
He was living proof of victory!
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! They can see!
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! Victory!
