Christians! to the Paschal Victim offer your thankful praises.The Lamb the sheep redeemeth:
Christ, who only is sinless, reconcileth sinners to the Father.Death and life contended in that conflict stupendous:
the Prince of Life, who died, deathless reigneth.Speak, Mary, declaring what thou sawest wayfaring."The tomb of Christ who now liveth:
and likewise the glory of the Risen.Bright Angels attesting, the shroud and napkin resting.Yea, Christ my hope is arisen:
to Galilee He goeth before you."We know that Christ is risen,
henceforth ever living:
Have mercy, Victor King, pardon giving.
HymnAbroad the regal banners fly,Now shines the cross’s mystery;Upon it Life did death endure, And yet by death did life procure.
Who, wounded with a direful spear,Did, purposely to wash us clearFrom stain of sin, pour out a floodOf precious water mixed with blood.
That which the prophet-king of oldHath in mysterious verse foretold, Is now accomplished, whilst we seeGod ruling nations from a tree.
O lovely and refulgent tree, Adorned with purpled majesty; Culled from a worthy stock, to bearThose limbs which sanctifièd were.
Blest tree, whose happy branches boreThe wealth that did the world restore;The beam that did that body weighWhich raised up hell’s expected prey.
The following verse is said on bended knee.
O Cross, our one reliance, hail!This holy Passiontide availTo give fresh merit to the saint,And pardon to the penitent.
Blest Trinity, salvation’s spring, May every soul thy praises sing; To those thou grantest conquest byThe holy cross, rewards apply.Amen.

Grant, we beseech Thee, Almighty God,

in the unity of the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end.R. Amen.
Matt 16:18 You are Peter, and upon this rock I will build My Church.
