Easter Blessing

May Almighty God, who has redeemed us and made us his children through the resurrection of his Son our Lord, bestow on you the riches of his blessing. 


May God, who through the water of baptism has raised us from sin into newness of life, make you holy and worthy to be united with Christ for ever. 


May God who has brought us out of bondage to sin into true and lasting freedom in the Redeemer, bring you to your eternal inheritance.


And the blessing of God Almighty, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, be upon you and remain with you forever.  AMEN
