Christ our Passover has been sacrificed for us;
therefore let us keep the feast,
2. Not with the old leaven,
the leaven of malice and evil,
but with the unleavened bread
of sincerity and truth.
3. Christ being raised from the dead
will never die again;
death no longer has dominion over him.
4. The death that he died,
he died to sin, once for all;
but the life he lives, he lives to God.
5. So also consider yourselves dead to sin,
and alive to God in Jesus Christ our Lord.
6. Christ has been raised from the dead,
the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep.
7. For since by a man came death,
by a man has come also the resurrection of the dead.
8. For as in Adam all die,
so also in Christ shall all be made alive.
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. Alleluia.
