1 O Paschal Feast, what joy is thine!
We praise, dear Lord, thy Name divine,
For thou hast triumphed o’er the tomb;
No more we need to dread its gloom.
2 The Tree where thou wast offered up
Now bears the fruit of life and hope;
Thy precious Blood for us was shed
That we might eat of heavenly bread.
3 We thank thee, Jesus, that thy hand
Hath freed us from sin’s galling band;
No more its bondage need we fear,
The year of liberty is here.
4 O Paschal Lamb, God’s holy Son,
Through whom redemption now is won,
Thou givest saving strength indeed
In all our conflicts, all our need.
5 As thou didst rise on Easter Day,
Help us to rise from sin, we pray;
And at the end of earthly strife
Raise us, O Lord, to endless life.
