Representative Text

Our evening prayers attend,
O Thou that holy art;
In mercy full forgiveness send
To every contrite heart;
For Thou hast risen to set us free,
And all mankind rejoice in Thee.

Encompass Zion round,
Ye people, tell His fame;
Let Resurrection joy abound,
And glory to His name;
He is our Lord, Who from the grave
Arose our sinning souls to save.

With Resurrection lays,
Ye people, come adore,
And worship Him with grateful praise,
Who lives for evermore;
He is our God, Who from the grave
Arose our sinning souls to save.

Lord, by Thy Passion Thou
Sav'st men from passions base,
And by Thy Resurrection, now
Dost from corruption raise.--
Glory to Thee we humbly bring,
O Christ, Who art our heavenly King.
