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.
