1 Christ, enthroned in heavenly splendor,
first begotten from the dead,
You alone, our strong defender,
now lift up your people’s head.
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
Christ, our true and living Bread,
Christ, our true and living Bread.

2 Here our humblest homage pay we,
here in loving reference bow;
Here for faith’s discernment pray we,
lest we fail to know you now.
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
You are here, we ask not how,
You are here, we ask not how.

3 Paschal Lamb, your offering finished
once for all when you were slain,
In its fullness undiminished
shall forevermore remain.
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
Cleansing hearts from every stain.
Cleansing hearts from every stain.

4 Life imparting heavenly manna,
stricken rock with streaming side,
Heaven and earth with loud hosanna
worship you, the Lamb who died,
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
Risen, ascended, glorified!
Risen, ascended, glorified!
