Sequence for Easter

Full Text

Christians, to the Paschal victim
offer your thankful praises!

A lamb the sheep redeeming:
Christ, who only is sinless,
reconciles a lost world to the Father.

Death and life have contended
in that combat stupendous:
the Prince of life, who died, reigns immortal.

Tell, Mary, we will hearken
what you saw in the garden:
"The tomb of Christ, who is living;
the glory of Jesus' resurrection;

bright angels attesting,
the shroud and napkin resting.
For Christ my hope is arisen;
to Galilee he will go before you."

Christ indeed from death is risen,
our new life obtaining;
have mercy, victor King, ever reigning!

Amen. Alleluia!
