Buona Pasqua

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!
Amen. Alleluia!
