Today’s Service is in collaboration with the Anglican Church of the Good Shepard of Charlestown, NH.
Our Easter Service is taken from the Book of Common Pray in usage during the 18th century. Our Easter Service Booklet may be found by following this link, or the linked images to the left. The booklet will need to be downloaded form dropbox. You do not need to have a drop box account nor sign in. Close the sign in/create account window and click on the down arrow.
The Easter Service Booklet contain two hymns which we will not be singing as part of today’s service, but we are posting these here for your enjoyment.
The first is Easter Hymn 77.77 from c.e. 1698 with alterations from c.e. 1749. The video is of the First Plymouth Church, Lincoln, Nebraska. A copy of the hymn may be found by following the link under the hymn image to the left.
The second hymn is General Hymns SMD. We may know it as “Crown him with Many Crowns.” This is a departure for us as it is a 19th century hymn. It was penned in 1851 with lyrics by Matthew Bridges and Godfrey Thring. It is sung to the tune of “Diademata” by sir George Job Elvey. The version herein is by the Huddersfield Choral Society.
