JESUS CHRIST, OUR RISEN SAVIOUR, OF THY SACRIFICE WE SING

Hymn for Eastertide

14 Apr 2018

God our Father, Lord of glory,
Thanks and praise we give to Thee;
In Thy mercy to our fathers,
Thou didst bring them through the sea.
So by water hast Thou saved us,
Now from Adam’s sin set free.
.
Jesus Christ, our Risen Saviour,
Of Thy sacrifice we sing;
As the lamb in ancient myst’ry
To Thy people life didst bring,
So in Eucharistic glory,
Thou, God’s Lamb, art made our King.
.
Holy Spirit, Breath from heaven,
We Thy precious gifts embrace;
At creation all things living
Thou didst sanctify with grace.
So may we, creation’s glory,
Be for Thee a dwelling place.
.
Loving mercy of the Father,
Sacrifice of Christ the Son,
Quick’ning power of the Spirit:
In us let Thy work be done!
May we rise to life eternal,
That our Paschal joy be won.
.
.
.
