320. Easter-Day

Since Christ our Passover is slain
a Sacrifice for all;
Let all with thankful Hearts agree
to keep the Festival:
Not with the Leaven, as of old,
of Sin and Malice fed;
But with unfeign'd Sincerity,
and Truth's unleaven'd Bread.

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;
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.

So count yourselves as dead to sin,
but graciously restor'd,
And made henceforth alive to God,
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
To Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
the God whom we adore,
Be Glory; as it was, is now,
and shall be evermore.
