ANTHEM.

EASTER DAY

CHRIST our passover is sacrificed for us; therefore let us keep the feast; not with the 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 unto God, through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Christ is risen from the dead, and become the first fruits of those who 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.

Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him, who sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb, for ever and ever. Amen.

Ask of me, and I will give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the utmost parts of the earth for thy possession;

Thou shalt break them

with a rod of iron, and dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel.

Be wise now therefore, O ye kings; be learned, ye who are judges of the earth.
