Remembrance of Baptism
L Christ is risen!
C He is risen, indeed! Alleluia!
L As we celebrate Easter, we should remember something very important: We have been baptized into Jesus Christ.
C When we were baptized, we were joined with Jesus so that His death counted as our death. Because of this, His death on the cross forgives us of all of our sins, and we are set free.
L And on Easter Sunday, Jesus rose from the dead! He lives! And our Baptism means we live with Him!
C The Lord of Life, who defeated death, is with us, and we are His forever.
L So let’s remember our Baptism now.
Everyone should now dip their hand into the water and make the sign of the cross as the Leader says the next line.
L We are baptized in the name of the Father, and of the + Son, and of the Holy Spirit.
L Repeat after me: I am a Baptized Child of the King.
C I am a Baptized Child of the King.
L Because I am His child, the King blesses me with all I need.
C Because I am His child, the King blesses me with all I need.
L I don’t have to be afraid, because the King loves me, died, and rose for me.
C I don’t have to be afraid, because the King loves me, died, and rose for me.
L Amen. Christ is risen!
C He is risen indeed! Alleluia!
Let’s all sing this song together: Now let us dance.
Dear Lord, We praise you for dying for us on a cross for our sins and for rising again. You have shown us that you are Lord over everything and now we have nothing to fear. Not even death. We love you Jesus and are so thankful to be your children. Amen
