319. At the Lamb's High Feast

1 At the Lamb's high feast we sing
Praise to our victorious King,
He has washed us in the tide
Flowing from his open side;
Praise we him, whose love divine
Gives his sacred Blood for wine,
Gives his Body for the feast,
Christ the victim, Christ the priest.

2 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.

3 Easter triumph, Easter joy,
Sin alone can this destroy;
From sin's pow'r do thou set free
Souls newborn, O Lord, in thee.
Hymns of glory, songs of praise,
Father, unto thee we raise:
Risen Lord, all praise to thee
With the Spirit ever be.
