1 Since Christ our Passover is slain
a Sacrifice for all;
Let all with thankful Hearts agree
to keep the Festival:
2 Not with the Leaven, as of old,
of Sin and Malice fed;
But with unfeign'd Sincerity,
and Truth's unleaven'd Bread.
3 Christ being rais'd by Pow'r divine,
and rescu'd from the Grave,
Shall die no more, Death shall on Him
no more Dominion have;
4 For that He dy'd, 'twas for our Sins
he once vouchsaf'd to die,
But that He lives, He lives to God,
for all Eternity.
5 So count yourselves as dead to Sin,
but graciously restor'd,
And made henceforth alive to God,
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
