Christians, to the Pascal Victim

Christians, to the Pascal Victim
Offer your thankful praises!

A Lamb the sheep redeems;
Christ, who only is sinless,
Reconciles sinner to the Fater.

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

Speak, Mary, declaring
What you saw, wayfaring.
“The tomb of Christ, who is living,
The glory of Jesus’ resurrection;

Bright angels, attesting
The shroud and napkin resting.
Yes, Christ my hope is arisen;
To Galilee he goes before you.

Christ indeed from death is risen,
our new life obtaining.
Have mercy, victor King,
eve reigning!

Amen. Alleluia!

The sequence for Easter Sunday, “Victimae pachali laudes”
