The Easter Anthems

Christ our passover has been sacrificed for us:

so let us celebrate the feast,


not with the old leaven of corruption and wickedness:

but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.

– 1 Corinthians 5.7b, 8

Christ once raised from the dead dies no more:

death has no more dominion over him.


In dying he died to sin once for all:

in living he lives to God.


See yourselves therefore as dead to sin:

and alive to God in Jesus Christ our Lord.

– Romans 6.9-11

Christ has been raised from the dead:

the first fruits of those who sleep.


For as by man came death:

by man has come also the resurrection of the dead;


for as in Adam all die:

even so in Christ shall all be made alive.

– 1 Corinthians 15.20-22

Glory to the Father and to the Son

and to the Holy Spirit;

as it was in the beginning is now

and shall be for ever. Amen.


Risen Christ,

you filled your disciples with boldness and fresh hope:

strengthen us to proclaim your risen life

and fill us with your peace,

to the glory of God the Father.


(An Easter season Collect)
