Did the Disciples Steal Jesus' Body?
O Lord, You are worthy to receive praise with joy from all the earth;
all nations and all peoples should sing the glory of Your name;
and give to You glorious praise!
O, Lord, let all peoples say to You, “How awesome are Your deeds!
So great is Your power that your enemies come cringing to You.
You completely subdue all Your foes under Your feet.
All the earth worships You
and sings praises to You;
they sing praises to Your name.”
We can see and we must proclaim what You have done:
You are awesome in Your deeds toward the children of man.
You turned the sea into dry land;
they passed through the river on foot.
You conquered sin and death in the death and resurrection of Your Son,
freeing Your people from guilt, condemnation and fear.
At the foot of the cross and at the empty grave, we rejoice in You,
for You rule by Your might forever,
And Your eyes keep watch on the nations—
let not the rebellious exalt themselves.
Lord, we Your people bless Your name
and sing and tell of Your praise,
for You have kept our soul among the living
and have not let our feet slip.
For You, O God, have tested us;
You have tried us as silver is tried.
You brought us into the bondage of sin;
You laid a crushing burden on our backs;
You let Satan torment us with guilt and shame;
we went through fire and through water;
yet You have brought us out to a place of abundance,
into the freedom and joy of being forgiven and adopted children of God.
I will come into Your house through the offering of Jesus in my place;
I will perform my vows to You,
that which my lips uttered
and my mouth promised when I was in trouble.
I will offer to You my life as a living sacrifice,
and the fruit of my lips as a sacrifice of praise,
giving thanks to You who have saved me and who keep me.
Father, give me the grace to tell those who fear you,
what You have done for my soul.
I cry to You with my mouth,
and high praise is on my tongue.
O let me not cherish iniquity in my heart,
but let me hate my sin as You hate my sin,
and hear my prayer as I seek Your face.
But truly You have listened;
You have attended to the voice of my prayer,
which is why I have confidence to come before You,
only because of Jesus and what He has done for me.
Blessed be You, O God,
because You have not rejected my prayer
