Wednesday in Holy Week

This hymn is #13 in Charles Wesley’s Hymns for Our Lord’s Resurrection published in 1746.

Break forth into praise!

Our surety and head,

His members to raise,

Hath rose from the dead:

The power of his Spirit

Hath quickened our Lord,

That we by his merit

May all be restored.

Our Captain and King

With shouts we proclaim,

And joyfully sing

The wonderful name;

The Name all-victorious

We publish, and feel,

Triumphantly glorious

O’er Sin, earth, and hell.

The Power of his rise

We know and declare,

And rapt to the skies,

His happiness share;

In heavenly places

With Jesus we sit,

And Jesus’ praises

With angels repeat.

We sing of his Love

While sojourning here,

Till Christ from above

Our Savior appear;

The heirs of salvation

With triumph receive,

In full consummation

Of Glory to live.

Collect for Wednesday in Easter Week

O God, whose blessed Son made himself known to his disciples in the breaking of bread: Open the eyes of our faith, that we may behold him in all his redeeming work; who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
