Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

XXVII. Since Christ our Passover is slain

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.
