Canonized & Otherwise

Christians, to the Paschal Victim 
Offer your thankful praises!
A Lamb the sheep redeems: 
Christ, who only is sinless, 
Reconciles sinners to the Father.
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, my 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, ever reigning!
Amen. Alleluia, alleluia!

Christians, to the Paschal Victim

Offer your thankful praises!

A Lamb the sheep redeems:

Christ, who only is sinless,

Reconciles sinners to the Father.

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, my 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, ever reigning!

Amen. Alleluia, alleluia!
