Sequence for Easter

Full Text

1 Christians, praise the paschal victim!
Offer thankful sacrifice!

2 Christ the Lamb has saved the sheep,
Christ the just one paid the price,
Reconciling sinners to the Father.

3 Death and life fought bitterly
For this wondrous victory;

4 O Mary, come and say
what you saw at break of day.

5 "The empty tomb of my living Lord!
I saw Christ Jesus risen and adored!

6 Bright angels testified,
Shroud and grave clothes side by side!

7 "Yes, Christ my hope rose gloriously.
He goes before you into Galilee."

8 Share the good news, sing joyfully;
His death is victory!
Lord Jesus, Victor King, Show us mercy

1 Victimae Paschali laudes
immolent Christiani.

2 Agnus redemit oves:
Christus innocens Patri
reconciliavit peccatores.

3 Mors et vita duello
conflixere mirando:
dux vitae mortuus, regnat vivus.

4 Dic nobis Maria,
quid vidisti in via?

5 Sepulcrum Christi viventis,
et gloriam vidi resurgentis:

6 Angelicos testes,
sudarium, et vestes.

7 Surrexit Christus spes mea:
praecedet suos in Galilaeam.

8 Scimus Christum surrexisse
a mortuis vere:
tu nobis, victor Rex, miserere.
