O Christ, our resurrection, O Christ, our life,
Our peace and our protection, Our shield in strife,:
We come in faith, receiving Your firm reply:
That we who live, believing, Shall never die.
This living hope we nourish Who linger here,
For like the grass, we flourish, Then disappear.
Your throne cannot be shaken; Your word is true,
So all who sleep shall waken, Alive in You.
O Christ, our resurrection, O Christ who rose,
Compel the last subjection Of all Your foes.
Then rise, Your reign completed, And yield Your seat,
For death shall lie defeated Beneath Your feet.
