Victimae Paschail Laudes...the sequence for Easter Sunday.
Christians to the Paschal Victim
Offer your thankful praises!
A Lamb the Sheep redeems:
Christ who is only sinless,
Reconciles sinners to the Father.
Death and life have contended in that combat stupendous:
The Prince of life,who died, remains 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!
