S16. Christ our Passover is sacrificed for us

Antiphon:

Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.

1. Christ our Passover is sacrificed for us,
therefore let us keep the feast,

2. Not with old leaven,
neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness,
but with the unleavened bread or sincerity and truth. [Ant.]

3. Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more;
death hath no more dominion over him.

4. For in that he died, he died unto sin once;
but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God.

5. Likewise reckon ye also yourselves
to be dead indeed unto sin,
but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord. [Ant.]

6. Christ is risen from the dead,
and become the first fruits of them that slept.

7. For since by man came death,
by man came also the resurrection of the dead.

8. For as in Adam all die,
even so in Christ shall all be made alive. [Ant.]

Glory to the Father, and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit:
As it was in the beginning is now,
and will be for ever. Amen. [Ant.]
