PASSOVER -- SERVICE AND MEAL
 

Servant of the Congregation - "Welcome everyone!
As New Covenant believers, our Passover service is different from that of the Jews; but we do not ignore the Old Testament scriptures.
We will observe some things from that great time when Yahweh brought Israel out of Egypt thousands of years ago. These are things that Yahshua observed. There are other traditions of his time which He may also have observed.
But we will also remember the death of Yahshua the Messiah. Some of the events surrounding his death are the fulfillment of those ancient types.
We'll show the relationship of the ancient Passover to the life and death of the Messiah who has come and shall soon come again.
Certainly we will use those elements that were instituted by our Master Yahshua the anointed lamb of Yahweh.

We're so pleased to have you with us tonight!
 

"Let us begin with an ancient Passover song! When Israel Went Out Of Egypt, from Psalm 114

(OR read Psalm 114 below)
 

When Israel out of Egypt went and did his dwelling change

When Jacob's house went out from those who were of language strange.

Then He made Judah his own and Israel His domain

At the sight of them the sea quickly fled, Jordan was driven back!
 

Like lambs the mountains and like rams the hills skipped to and fro.

O sea what ails you that you flee, O Jordan that you turn back?

What ails you mountains that you skip, you skip and leap like rams?

What ails you hills that you did leap, that you did leap like lambs?
 

O, at the presence of Yahweh earth trembled so with fear.

O, as the presence of the El of Jacob did appear.

Who from the hard and stony rock did pools of water bring,

And by His pow'r He turned the flint into a water spring!
 

Psalms 114:

1 When Israel went out of Egypt,

The house of Jacob from a people of strange language,

2 Judah became His sanctuary, And Israel His dominion.

3 The sea saw it and fled; Jordan turned back.

4 The mountains skipped like rams, The little hills like lambs.

5 What ails you, O sea, that you fled? O Jordan, that you turned back?

6 O mountains, that you skipped like rams? O little hills, like lambs?

7 Tremble, O earth, at the presence of Yahweh,

At the presence of the Elohim of Jacob,

8 Who turned the rock into a pool of water,

The flint into a fountain of waters.
 

Light the Lamps

Servant: "By the hands of a woman, the lamps are lit.

This reminds us that it was the promised Seed of a Woman who is the Light of the World.

"Sister  _________________ will you please light the candles."
 

The servant's wife (OR another lady) covers her head, lights the candles, and says:

"Baruch atah  YAHWEH     Eloheinu,     melech       h'olam

[Blessed are you Yahweh our Mighty one Sovereign of all things], Who has set us apart with Your commandments, and given us the festival lights to kindle.

Baruch atah YAHWEH Eloheinu, Sovereign of all things, Who has brought us life, and sustained us, and enabled us to reach this season of awe.

Baruch atah YAHWEH Eloheinu, Sovereign of all things, Who has sent thy Word as a light to bring revelation to the nations, And the glory of Your people Israel."
 
 

Washing hands. Urchatz

Servant: "Who may ascend the hill of Yahweh? He that has clean hands and a pure heart." (Psalms 24:3,4)

"There is a pitcher of water on the table. Pour a little water over your neighbor's hands into the empty dish on the table. Then your neighbor can pour for you. Dry your hands with the paper towels you have and the young people will be coming to collect the towels.

PRAYER

Servant: "Brother _______________, Will you please ask for Yahweh's presence with us tonight?"
 

Prayer as follows or similar: "We praise you Yahweh our Elohim, ruler of the universe, for you have liberated your people Israel with your mighty hand in ancient times when you brought us out of Egypt and then in a much greater sense when you sent your son, the anointed lamb of Yahweh to be our Passover. We come before you this evening in Yahshua's name to praise you for your great power and love and to remember Yahshua's death until he comes. Please send your spirit into our hearts to sanctify us as we keep your Feasts, obey your commands and trust in the salvation you have sent for us through your son, Yahshua.
 

Break the middle matzoh. Yachatz

(Three large matzot are placed on a dish in front of the servant. He breaks the middle matzoh in half and places the larger half in a linen bag or napkin.)

Servant: "This is the Afikoman.. According to ancient custom, it will be hidden until the right time, just as the Messiah's body was hidden in the earth until exactly the right time. Yahshua may have used the Afikoman for the bread representing his body at the end of his last Passover meal"

(He places the wrapped Afikoman under some of his books or other materials.)
 
 

Read Exodus 12:1-14

Servant: "Brother _________________, please read the story of that first Passover."
 

Now Yahweh spoke to Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, saying, "This month shall be your beginning of months; it shall be the first month of the year to you.

"Speak to all the congregation of Israel, saying: 'On the tenth day of this month every man shall take for himself a lamb, according to the house of his father, a lamb for a household. And if the household is too small for the lamb, let him and his neighbor next to his house take it according to the number of the persons; according to each man's need you shall make your count for the lamb. Your lamb shall be without a blemish, a male of the first year. You may take it from the sheep or from the goats.

'Now you shall keep it until the fourteenth day of the same month. Then the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it at twilight. And they shall take some of the blood and put it on the two doorposts and on the lintel of the houses where they eat it. Then they shall eat the flesh on that night; roasted with fire, with unleavened bread and with bitter herbs they shall eat it. Do not eat it raw, nor boiled at all with water, but roasted in fire; its head with its legs and its entrails. You shall let none of it remain until morning, and what remains of it until morning you shall burn with fire.

'And thus you shall eat it: with a belt on your waist, your sandals on your feet, and your staff in your hand. So you shall eat it in haste. It is Yahweh's Passover. For I will pass through the land of Egypt on that night, and will strike all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgment: I am Yahweh. Now the blood shall be a sign for you on the houses where you are. And when I see the blood, I will pass over you; and the plague shall not be on you to destroy you when I strike the land of Egypt. So this day shall be to you a memorial; and you shall keep it as a feast to Yahweh throughout your generations. You shall keep it as a feast by an everlasting ordinance.'"
 

"We are here tonight in obedience to this command.
 

REASONS FOR OUR GRATITUDE Dayenu (It Would Have Been Enough)

How plentiful are the reasons for our gratitude to YAHWEH for the many favors bestowed upon us!
YAHWEH brought us out of Egypt,
divided the Red Sea for us, permitted us to cross on dry land,
sustained us for forty years in the desert, fed us with manna,
ordained the Sabbath,
brought us to Mount Sinai,
gave us the Torah,
led us into the land of Israel,
built for us the Temple,
sent us prophets of truth,
and made us a Kodesh people to perfect the world under the kingdom of the Almighty, in truth and righteousness.

If the children of Israel have many things to be grateful for, how much more the child of YAHWEH
who has Yahweh's son for example, brother and savior,
and who has the gifts of the Holy spirit of Yahweh!!!
 
 

THE QUESTIONS OF THE CHILDREN
 

Servant: "Exodus 10:9  And Moses said, We will go, with our young and with our old, with our sons and with our daughters, with our flocks and with our herds will we go; for we must hold a feast to YAHWEH.

"To this day, we love to have our children join in our Feasts to Yahweh and especially in this Passover observance. Do we have some children here with questions?"

A child says, "Abba, Ma nishtanah ha leila  hazah   mikol       haleylot!?

                      Father,    why is this      night  different from all  the [other] nights?

His father answers: "On all other nights, we eat either leavened bread or matzo; on this night - only matzo. On all other nights, we eat all kinds of herbs; on this night, we especially eat bitter herbs. On all other nights, we do not dip herbs at all; on this night we dip them twice. On all other nights, we eat in an ordinary manner; tonight we dine with special ceremony. On other nights we talk about various things; on this night we remember Yahshua's death and we talk about Yahweh's great salvation."
 

Question One

A young participant says: "What is the meaning of the testimonies, and the statutes, and the judgments, which YAHWEH Eloheinu has commanded you?' (Deuteronomy 6:20)
 

His father replies to him (or her), "We were slaves of Pharaoh in Egypt, and Yahweh brought us out of Egypt with a mighty hand; and Yahweh showed signs and wonders before our eyes, great and severe, against Egypt, Pharaoh, and all his household. Then He brought us out from there, that He might bring us in, to give us the land of which He swore to our fathers. And Yahweh commanded us to observe all these statutes, to fear Yahweh our Elohim, for our good always, that He might preserve us alive, as it is this day. Then it will be righteousness for us, if we are careful to observe all these commandments before Yahweh our Elohim, as He has commanded us." (Deuteronomy 6:21-25)
 

Question Two:

A young participant asks: "What do you mean by this service?' {Exodus 12:26)

His father answers him, "It is the Passover sacrifice of Yahweh, who passed over the houses of the children of Israel in Egypt when He struck the Egyptians and delivered our households. So the people bowed their heads and worshiped." (Exodus 12:27)
 
 

Question Three:

A young participant asks: "What is this, father?" (Exodus 13:14)

His father answers him, "By strength of hand Yahweh brought us out of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. And it came to pass, when Pharaoh was stubborn about letting us go, that Yahweh killed all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both the firstborn of man and the firstborn of beast. Therefore I sacrifice to Yahweh all males that open the womb, but all the firstborn of my sons I redeem. It shall be as a sign on your hand and as frontlets between your eyes, for by strength of hand Yahweh brought us out of Egypt." Exodus 13:14-16
 

Question Four:

A father says to a child who cannot speak, "Dear child, This is done because of what Yahweh did for me when I came up from Egypt. It shall be as a sign to you on your hand and as a memorial between your eyes, that Yahweh's law may be in your mouth; for with a strong hand Yahweh has brought you out of Egypt. You shall therefore keep this ordinance in its season from year to year. (Exodus 13:8-10)
 
 

PRAYER OF REPENTANCE
 

Servant: "Thank you children and fathers.
As Yahweh brought the Israelites out of bondage from Egypt,
we pray that He brings us out of our bondage to sin.
Elder/Brother _______________ will you please lead us in a prayer of repentance?"

Prayer as follows or similar:
 

"Almighty Father in Heaven, we come before you in the name of your son, our Passover lamb, the lamb of Yahweh. We are very conscious that we are not worthy without Yahshua to come into your presence. We have given in to the pulls of our flesh, to the temptations of the world and fallen to the snares of the adversary. We have sinned against You, our Elohim, and against our neighbor. We have sometimes hurt our brethren in the congregation, your own children.

"Father, we are so sorry! We know we have no excuse. Yahshua was tempted in every way we are - yet he was without sin. Father, we thank you for his example. We ask you to lead us also out of sin as you led our ancestors out of Egypt so long ago. Father, be powerful in our lives as you were in the camp of Israel! You can break the strong bonds that are upon us. We don't ask you to take away the law but we ask you to free us from all the problems of breaking the law by guiding us and helping us to keep it with your strength. We thank you for your power and for your loving help for us.

In the name of Yahshua, the lamb of Yahweh, we pray. So let it be Father, according to your mercy."
 

The Explanation of the Meal:
 

Servant: "This night we have come together to commemorate the beginning of freedom. Freedom of the Israelites from the bondage of hard taskmasters, the Egyptians, and freedom for us through Yahshua through whom Yahweh has given us the gift of eternal life.

"But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves to Yahweh, the fruit you reap is sanctification, and the result is eternal life. For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of Yahweh is eternal life through Yahshua the Messiah, our Master." (Romans 6: 22-23)
 

Yahweh commanded the Israelites to sacrifice a first-born lamb without spot or blemish for the first Passover. He commanded them to take the blood from the sacrificed lamb and smear it on the doorposts of their houses as a redeeming sign from the penalty of death. Yahweh also sacrificed His first-born, Yahshua, without spot or blemish; without sin, to become sin for us so we may have everlasting life . Yahshua shed his redeeming blood so we may mark the doorposts of our heart so eternal death may also pass over us.

The first Passover was kept in a solemn way, with loins girded, staff in hand, and shoes on their feet just as if they would be ready to leave at a moment's notice. We, too, must be ready at a moment's notice for Yahshua to reclaim us at His second coming; with "our loins girded about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness, and your feet shod with the preparation of the good news of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith, with which you shall quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of The Spirit, which is the word of Yahweh." (Eph. 6:14-17)

This all began when Yahweh told Moses that He had heard the cries and had seen the tears of His people under the whip of the cruel taskmasters. We commemorate that from beginning to end. That's why we do these things and have these items -- only as a remembrance of what was. Let's look at what they stand for:

Unleavened bread was prepared in haste and given no chance to rise. Remember the unleavened bread this next week as we commemorate this feast, as a conscious effort to remove sin from our life so we can please our Creator whom we love. Let us not give sin a chance to rise and grow within our lives . "Don't you know that a little leaven leavens the whole lump? Therefore purge out the old leaven, so that you may be a new lump as you are unleavened,'' (1 Corinthians 5:6-7)

Bitter herbs remind us of the bitterness of slavery but also of the bitterness of death.

"They shall look upon me, the one they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one that is in bitterness for his first born." (Zechariah 12:10)
 

The salt water which the bitter herbs are dipped into symbolizes the tears of bondage. We also should remember the tears of Mary of Bethany "who was a sinner, when she knew that Yahshua was eating in the Pharisee's house, brought an alabaster box of ointment, and stood at His feet behind him, weeping; and began to wash his feet with tears, and did wipe them with the hair of her head, and kissed His feet, and anointed them with the ointment," to anoint His body for burial. (Luke 7:37-38)
 

The haroset symbolizes the mortar the Israelites made to build the Pharaoh's Monuments. Yahshua is our mortar to cement the body of the Messiah together. "Now, therefore, you are no longer foreigners and aliens, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of Yahweh's household, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Yahshua the Messiah himself as the chief cornerstone. In him the whole building is joined together and rises to become a holy temple in Yahweh. And in him you also are being built together to become a dwelling in which Yahweh lives by his Spirit." (Eph. 2:19-22)
 

Taking the Old Symbols Before the Fellowship Meal:
 

Servant: "We have here parsley and salt water. It represents bitterness and tears. Let us reflect on their meaning as we all share. Dip some parsley in the salt water and eat.
 

"We also have fresh celery. Take a piece of celery to dip into the dish of haroset. Remember, the celery symbolizes bitterness and the haroset mortar. Together they remind us of the bitter treatment of the Israelites by the Egyptian taskmasters. But also remember how Yahshua binds his people together into one body.
 

(The servant breaks the unleavened bread (but not the Afikoman) into pieces for each table and the servers serve it to the tables.)

"On the plates in front of you are unleavened bread, lettuce and horseradish. As we make this into a sandwich, let us reflect on the double symbolism of the unleavened bread, showing how we had to leave Egypt so quickly and also how we are to remove sin from our lives. The bitter herbs remind us of the bitterness of our past slavery. But as we eat this, let us praise Yahweh for His love for us, for giving His only begotten Son who died for us to set us free.
 

"We'll take a short break now to set the table for the meal. Then we'll offer a prayer before we eat.
 

Prayer before the meal

Servant: "Now we'll ask Yahweh's blessing on the food and that we can remember what it all stands for. ________________, will you please give thanks?"
 

Meal -- here we eat a light meal and talk about the first Passover.
 

Clear the Table

While the table is being cleared let's sing two songs based on Yahshua's last Passover night.

Take your song sheets and let's sing

Keep The Love and Joy, 46 John 14:1, 27, 15:11

Lifesong, 123
 

After The Meal Read 1 Corinthians 11:27-29
 

Servant: Consider the words of the Apostle Paul in 1 Corinthians 11:27-29 "Therefore whoever eats this bread or drinks this cup of the Master in an unworthy manner will be guilty of the body and blood of the Master. A man ought to examine himself before he eats of the bread and drinks of the cup. For anyone who eats and drinks without recognizing the body of the Master eats and drinks judgment to himself. That is why many among you are weak and sick, and a number of you have fallen asleep."

Brethren, remember what this scripture says. Let us take a few minutes now to examine our hearts and go before Yahweh in repentant prayer so we may partake of the emblems worthily.
 

Now let's sing a song. If you're not done praying, then go right ahead with your prayer while we sing.

Yahweh Reigns, 98 Isaiah 52:7, 53:2-8
 

The Foot Washing

Servant: "John 13:4-17 Yahshua rose from supper and laid aside His garments, took a towel and girded Himself. After that, He poured water into a basin and began to wash the disciples' feet, and to wipe them with the towel with which He was girded. Then He came to Simon Peter and Peter said to Him, "Master, are You washing my feet?"

Yahshua answered and said to him, "What I am doing you do not understand now, but you will understand after this."

Peter said to Him, "You shall never wash my feet!"

Yahshua answered him, "If I do not wash you, you have no part with Me."

Simon Peter said to Him, "Master, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head!"

Yahshua said to him, "He who is bathed needs only to wash his feet, but is completely clean; and you are clean, but not all of you." For He knew who would betray Him; therefore He said, 'You are not all clean.'

So when He had washed their feet, taken His garments, and sat down again, He said to them, "Do you know what I have done to you? You call me Teacher and Master, and you say well, for so I am. If I then, your Master and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another's feet. For I have given you an example, that you should do as I have done to you. Most assuredly, I say to you, a servant is not greater than his master; nor is he who is sent greater than he who sent him. If you know these things, blessed are you if you do them."
 

Instruct the congregation of procedures and proceed with foot washing.

"Please remember to do this rather quietly and please remember to wash your hands when you are done"

After the foot washing.

Servant: "While we reassemble, let's take our song sheets and sing

Yahshua Died For Me, 92
 

The Bread
 

Servant: "Yahshua said in John 6:47-58, "Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me has everlasting life. I am the bread of life. Your fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, and are dead. This is the bread which comes down from heaven, that one may eat of it and not die.

"I am the living bread which came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever; and the bread that I shall give is My flesh, which I shall give for the life of the world."

The Jews therefore quarreled among themselves, saying, "How can this Man give us His flesh to eat?"

Then Yahshua said to them, "Most assuredly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in you. Whoever eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day. For My flesh is food indeed, and My blood is drink indeed. He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood abides in Me, and I in him. As the living Father sent Me, and I live because of the Father, so he who feeds on Me will live because of Me. This is the bread which came down from heaven; not as your fathers ate the manna, and are dead. He who eats this bread will live forever."
 

The prophet says in Isaiah 53:3 to 7:

"He is despised and rejected by men, A Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. And we hid, as it were, our faces from Him; He was despised, and we did not esteem Him. Surely He has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; Yet we esteemed Him stricken, smitten by Elohim, and afflicted. But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; We have turned, every one, to his own way; And Yahweh has laid on Him the iniquity of us all. He was oppressed and He was afflicted, Yet He opened not His mouth; He was led as a lamb to the slaughter, And as a sheep before its shearers is silent, So He opened not His mouth.
 

Luke 22:19 And He took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, "This is My body which is given for you; do this in remembrance of Me."
 

Prayer -- "________________ Please give thanks for the bread Yahweh has provided for us."

Prayer as follows or similar: "Father Yahweh, we do thank you for the bread you have given for us. You sent your son to give his body to be broken for us. We can only imagine your feelings as the soldiers beat him, spit on him, scourged him, and finally drove great nails through his flesh. We know you were able to watch this torture because it was part of your plan for us. We thank you that 'through his stripes we are healed.' Father, we are so sorry that we needed this sacrifice of Yahshua's. We thank you Father, and we thank Yahshua that the sacrifice was willingly made out the love both of you have for us. We each remember Yahshua's death tonight with sadness and with love for you. In Yahshua's name we pray. So let it be."

(Servant: Retrieve the Afikoman hidden earlier and break it into enough pieces for every baptized person present and distribute it.)

"At this point let us each offer a silent prayer of thanks for our personal blessings from our savior's broken body for each one of us and eat the unleavened bread which is a symbol of Yahshua's broken body."
 

The Cup

Read Matthew 26:27-29

Servant: "And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, "Drink you all of it; for this is my blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many for the remission of sins. But I say to you, I will not drink of this fruit of the vine from now on until that day when I drink it new with you in My Father's kingdom."
 

Prayer -- "________________ Please give thanks for the cup Yahweh has provided for us."

Prayer as follows or similar: "Almighty Father Yahweh, we ask you to accept our poor thanks for this cup we drink. We have heard of the great pain that swept through Yahshua as he hung on that tree for us, with his life-blood flowed out of him. How much his pain must have hurt you also! Father we're so sorry for our sins that required this sacrifice.

"We are pleased that through this sacrifice, many people can come to be your children. We know that is your desire. Father, may each of us here be worthy of all you have done for us. Not that we would be righteous enough of ourselves, but that we would be truly repentant and be truly loving of our brethren. Thank you for being our loving Father. Thank you for sending Yahshua to be our brother, our example, and our savior. In Yahshua's name we praise and thank you! HalleluYah!"
 

Let the wine (or juice) be distributed to each baptized person

Servant: "We should all now drink all of our cup. Let us all profess: 'Yahweh, we accept Yahshua's blood as the token of the new covenant -- HalleluYah!'"

Blessing one another - Depart In Peace

Read John 13:34-35 OR sing as a song.

Servant: Yahshua said, "A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another."

"Brethren, we know that we must show our love for one another in the many things we do and say throughout the year. Love is not something that happens for just a few minutes. But now let's give each other an embrace and a blessing, just as a symbol showing that the Messiah's love is in us.

Then let us depart in peace. May Yahweh bless you."

Servant: And next year?

(ALL) "NEXT YEAR IN JERUSALEM !"

Chorus
 
 

YAHWEH REIGNS! Isaiah 52:7, 53:2-8
 

How lovely on the mountains are the feet of him Isaiah 52:7

That bring good news, good news.

Announcing peace; proclaiming news of happiness;

Yahweh reigns, Yahweh reigns!

Yahweh reigns, Yahweh reigns!

Yahweh reigns, Yahweh reigns!
 

He had no stately form, He had no majesty, 53:2-3

That we should be drawn to Him.

He was despised, and we took no account of Him.

Yet now He reigns, with the Most High.

Now He reigns, now He reigns,

Now He reigns, with the Most High.
 

It was our sin and guilt, that bruised and wounded Him, 53:5-6

It was our sin, that brought Him down.

When we like sheep had gone astray, our shepherd came,

And on His shoulders bore our shame.

On His shoulders, On His shoulders.

On His shoulders, He bore our shame.
 

Meek as a lamb, that's led out to the slaughter-house, 53:7

Dumb as a sheep, before its shearer.

His life ran down upon the ground like pouring rain,

That we might be born again.

That we might be, that we might be,

That we might be born again.
 

Out from the tomb He came with grace and majesty,

He is alive! He is alive!

Yah loves us so, see here His hands, His feet, His side,

Yes, we know, He is alive!

He is alive! He is alive!

He is alive! He is alive!
 

How lovely on the mountains are the feet of him,

That bring good news, good news.

Announcing peace; proclaiming news of happiness;

Yahweh reigns, Yahweh reigns!

Yahweh reigns, Yahweh reigns!

Yahweh reigns, Yahweh reigns!
 
 

Lifesong
 

I want to thank you Yahweh, my Holy Father,

For letting us understand,

That with your breath You created us,

The air, the sea and the land.

You spoke Your words and they came to be;

Your spirit hovered over the restless sea,

And there was life, life, life, life;

There was life.
 

I want thank you Yahshua, my blessed Savior,

For giving your life for me.

Innocent blood was shed for mine,

In your sacrifice upon Calvary;

He was falsely accused and brutally slain;

They never thought they'd see Yahshua again.

But after three days and three nights had passed,

The heavens were opened with a trumpet blast

And there was life, life, life, life;

There was life.
 

Prophets and holy ones gone before,

Were silenced by death that they'd speak no more.

But when Yahshua died the veil was torn,

The sky turned dark and all forlorn.

The people cried and the earth did shake,

The graves were opened with a mighty quake;

And there was life, life, life, life;

There was life.
 

Spread the tidings throughout the land,

Help unbelievers to understand.

Death could not hold Yahshua down;

He's ascended to the throne.

Yahshua sits at Yahweh's side;

Soon returning for his bride.

And there is life, life, life, life;

There is life! There is life!
