Scripture: John 6:51
1 At the Lamb's high feast we sing Praise to our victorious king,
Who has washed us in the tide Flowing from his pierced side. Alleluia!
2 Praise we him, whose love divine Gives his sacred blood for wine,
Gives his body for the feast Christ the victim, Christ the priest. Alleluia!
3 Where the paschal blood is pouredDeath's dread angel sheathes the sword;
Israel's hosts triumphant go Through the wave that drowns the foe. Alleluia!
4 Praise we Christ, whose blood was shed,Paschal victim, paschal bread;
With sincerity and loveEat we manna from above. Alleluia!
5 Mighty Victim from the sky, Hell's fierce pow'rs beneath you lie;
You have conquered in the fight, You have brought us life and light. Alleluia!
6 Now no more can death appall, Now no more the grave enthrall;
You have opened paradise, And your saints in you shall rise. Alleluia!
7 Easter triumph, Easter joy! This alone can sin destroy!
From sin's pow'r, Lord, set us free, Newborn souls in you to be. Alleluia!
8 Father, who the crown shall give; Savior, by whose death we live;
Spirit, guide through all our days; Three in One, your name we praise. Alleluia!
