An Easter Praise Litany from New Zealand

happy woman

The risen Christ meets us at the tomb,
and turns our tears to joy.

For your love and goodness
We give you thanks, O God.

Christ comes through our locked doors,
and turns our fear to courage.

For your love and goodness
We give you thanks, O God.

Christ comes to daily life and work,
and turns our failure to new vision.

For your love and goodness
We give you thanks, O God.

Christ breaks the bread,
and turns our despair to hope.

For your love and goodness
We give you thanks, O God.
