Hymn for the Jubilee Year of Mercy

We invite you to enjoy and learn the official hymn for the Year of Mercy.

Easter Sequence

The whole congregation is invited to sing the Easter Sequence at Mass on Easter Sunday. To help you feel comfortable with this beautiful but challenging piece, you will find the lyrics below, and you can listen to a recording of the hymn below. It is also #690 in the CBW III.

1) Christians, praise the Paschal victim!
Offer thankful sacrifice!
2) Christ the Lamb has saved the sheep,
Christ the just one paid the price,
Reconciling sinners to the Father.
3) Death and life fought bitterly
For this wondrous victory;
The Lord of life who died reigns glorified!
4) O Mary, come and say
What you saw at break of day.
5) “The empty tomb of my living Lord!
I saw Christ Jesus risen and adored!”
6) Bright angels testified,
Shroud and grave clothes side by side!
7) “Yes, Christ my hope rose gloriously.
He goes before you into Galilee.”
8) Share the good news, sing joyfully:
His death is victory!
Lord Jesus, Victor King, Show us mercy!
