1 Since Christ our passover is slain,
A sacrifice for all;
Let all, with thankful hearts, agree
To keep the festival:
2 Not with the leaven, as of old,
Of sin and malice fed;
But with unfeign'd sincerity,
And truth's unleaven'd bread.
3 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.
4 For that he died, 'twas for our sins
He once vouchsaf'd to die:
But that he lives, he lives to God,
For all eternity.
5 So count yourselves as dead to sin,
But graciously restor'd,
And made, henceforth, alive to God,
Through Jesus Christ our Lord.
