Breviary Hymns and Missal Sequences, Paschal Sequence

cover to the ebook 'Breviary Hymns and Missal Sequences', translated by Archbishop Edward Gilpin BagshawePraises to the Paschal Victim,
Let all Christian people give,
Christ, the Lamb, the sheep hath purchased,
And, with no sin to forgive,
Hath poor sinners to the Father
Reconciled, that they may live.

Life and death, in wondrous conflict,
Combated in mortal strife,
See, Life’s Captain dies, but reigneth,
Risen to immortal life.

Tell us, Mary, what thou sawest,
When thou wentest on thy way,
“Christ the Living’s Tomb, and Jesus,
Risen gloriously today,

“Saw I then, and witness Angels,
Napkin too, and Winding Sheet;
Christ, my Hope, again has risen
You in Galilee to meet.”
That Christ is risen indeed, we know,
Victorious King, Thy mercy show. Amen.

– translated by Archbishop Edward Gilpin Bagshawe, C.O., Bishop of Nottingham, England
