Victimae Paschali Laudes Words & Music: Wipo of Burgundy (d. 1050)

Christians, to the Paschal victim offer your thankful praises!
A lamb the sheep redeemeth: Christ, who only is sinless, reconcileth sinners to the Father.

Death and life have contended in that combat stupendous:
the Prince of life, who died, reigns immortal.
Speak, Mary, declaring what thou sawest, wayfaring:

“The tomb of Christ, who is living, the glory of Jesus’ resurrection;
bright angels attesting, the shroud and napkin resting.
Yea, Christ my hope is arisen; to Galilee he will go before you.”

Christ indeed from death is risen, our new life obtaining;
have mercy, victor King, ever reigning! Amen. Alleluia!

* CALL TO WORSHIP from Isaiah 12
Leslie Liu, Elder

Leader: I will praise you, O LORD. Surely God is my salvation; I will trust and not be afraid.
People: The LORD is my strength and my song; he has become my salvation.
Leader: Give thanks to the LORD, call on his name; make known among the nations what he has done, and proclaim that his name is exalted.
People: Sing to the LORD, for he has done glorious things; let this be known to all the world.

* HYMN No. 286 Worship Christ, the Risen King!

Our Father who art in heaven; Hallowed be Thy name.
Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our coming day’s bread;
And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors;
And lead us not into trial, but deliver us from the Evil One.
For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

Most Glorious Lord of Life
Words: Edmund Spenser (1552–1599)
Music: William H. Harris (1883–1973)

Most glorious Lord of life, that on this day,
Didst make thy triumph over death and sin:
And having harrowed hell, didst bring away
Captivity thence captive, us to win:

This joyous day, dear Lord, with joy begin,
And grant that we for whom thou diddest die,
Being with thy dear blood clean wash’d from sin,
May live for ever in felicity.

And that thy love we weighing worthily,
May likewise love thee for the same again:
And for thy sake, that all like dear didst buy,
With love may one another entertain.

So let us love, dear love, like as we ought,
Love is the lesson which the Lord us taught.

* HYMN At the Lamb’s High Feast We Sing
