The Song

This hymn calls us to an exhuberant celebration of the resurrection. It is appropriate for use in processionals and as an opening hymn. It is also appropriate for use as an invitation to the table, particularly using its third stanza. Its author, Mortimer Arias, was the first bishop of the Bolivian Methodist Church and President of the Latin American Biblical Seminary in Costa Rica.

The Prayer

Consider using the first two stanzas of the hymn at the start of the service, reserving the third stanza for the invitation to the table of the Lord. Consider using the regular refrain, followed by the optional refrain at the end of every service during the Easter Season.

The New Century Hymnal contributes an alternate text for several lines in the hymn that expand its language in terms of gender and

Come, celebrate with thanksgiving, come and worship God almighty,
who is creator of all things, and the giver of good gifts;
who came to be one among us, even dying on a cross.
Evil has been overcome, and now death has been destroyed.

Celebrate that Christ is living and then wait for God's great gift;
the divine and holy Spirit now may come into our hearts.

Come, celebrate in your feasting that the God of liberation
brings us to new life, new wholeness, and forgives in joy and love.
With voices and happy drumming let us sing the triumph song.
God is alive and among us, now our dancing hearts rejoice!

Come, celebrate all togetherin this feast of heavenly love.
We come at God's invitation on this happy, holy day.
Joyfully, let us now gather, celebrating unity,
joining our hands in thanksgiving as the family of God.
