1. At the Lamb’s high feast we sing, Praise to our victorious King,
He has hath washed us in the tide Flowing from his wounded side;
Praise the Lord, whose love divine Gives his sacred blood for wine,
Gives his body for the feast, Christ the Victim, Christ the Priest.

2 Where the paschal blood is poured, Death’s dread angel sheathes his sword;
Israel’s hosts triumphant go Through the wave that drowns the foe.
Christ the Lamb, whose blood was shed, Paschal Victim, paschal bread!
With sincerity and love Eat we manna from above.

3. Mighty victim from the sky, Pow’rs of hell beneath you lie;
Death is conquered in the fight, You have brought us life and light.
Your victorious banners wave; You have risen from the grave;
You have opened paradise, And in you all saints shall rise.

4. Easter triumph, Easter joy, This alone can sin destroy;
From the death of sin set free: Souls reborn, O Lord, we’ll be.
Hymns of glory, songs of praise, Father, unto you we raise;
And to you, our risen King, With the Spirit, praise we sing.
