Hymn: LSB 458, st. 5-6 :
Christ Jesus Lay in Death’s Strong Bands
5. Here our true Paschal Lamb we see,
Whom God so freely gave us;
He died on the accursed tree–
So strong His love–to save us.
See, His blood now marks our door;
Faith points to it; death passes o’er,
And Satan cannot harm us.
6. So let us keep the festival
To which the Lord invites us;
Christ is Himself the joy of all,
The sun that warms and lights us.
Now His grace to us imparts
Eternal sunshine to our hearts;
The night of sin is ended.
