Easter Evening Devotion

Introit
We will not hide them from their children, but tell to the coming generation the glorious deeds of the LORD, | and his might,*
and the wonders that | he has done.

He divided the sea and let them | pass through it,*
and made the waters stand | like a heap.

In the daytime he led them | with a cloud,*
and all the night with a | fiery light.

He split rocks in the | wilderness*
and gave them drink abundantly as | from the deep.

and he rained down on them man- | na to eat*
and gave them the grain of | heaven.

Man ate of the bread of the | angels;*
he sent them food in a- | bundance.

Glory be to the Father and | to the Son*
and to the Holy | Spirit;
as it was in the be- | ginning,*
is now, and will be forever. | Amen.

We will not hide them from their children, but tell to the coming generation the glorious deeds of the LORD, | and his might,*
and the wonders that | he has done.
