 * Canticle: Christ Our Passover   W.C. Macfarlane, 1870-1945

 Christ our Passover is sacrificed for us; therefore let us keep the feast,

 Not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness,

 But with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.

Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over Him.

For in that He died, He died unto sin once; but in that He liveth, He liveth unto God.

Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin; But alive to God through Jesus Christ, our Lord.

Christ is risen from the dead; and become the first-fruits of them that slept.

For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead.

For as in Adam all die; even so in Christ shall all be made alive.

Glory be to the Father…
