LXXIII. The Feast of Easter was enjoin'd

1 The Feast of Easter was enjoin'd
To keep our Saviour Christ in mind;
He was our great Passover slain,
Who once was dead but lives again.

2 That Paschal Lamb the Jews did eat,
Pre-figur'd Christ our Lord complete!
The whole of what it typified,
Was all complete when Jesus died.

3 We also have a Paschal Lamb,
Since Christ, our great Passover came;
He died to be our sacrifice,
And rose that we should also rise.

4 Let us agree with one accord,
To keep this feast unto the Lord!
But not in malice or deceit
For such the Lord will ever hate.

5 To purge the heart from base desire!
The keeping of this feast requires--
To love the Lord our living head,
Is feasting on unleaven'd bread.
