Am - Em
At the Lamb's high feast we sing
Am Em C - G
Praise to our victorious King,
C G Am - Em
Who hath washed us in the tide
Am Em C - G
Flowing from his pierced side;
C G F - C
Praise we him whose love divine
F C Am - Em
Gives his sacred blood for wine,
Am Em F - C
Gives his body for the feast,
F C C - G - Am - Em
Christ the Victim, Christ the Priest.
Where the paschal blood is poured,
Death's dark angel sheathes his sword;
Israel's hosts triumphant go
Through the wave that drowns the foe.
Praise we Christ, whose blood was shed,
Paschal Victim, Paschal Bread;
With sincerity and love
Eat we manna from above.
Mighty Victim from the sky,
Pow'rs of hell beneath thee lie;
Death is conquered in the fight,
Thou hast brought us life and light:
Hymns of glory and of praise,
Risen Lord, to thee we raise;
Holy Father, praise to thee,
With the Spirit, ever be.
