Refrain:

All   God raised Christ from the dead,

the Lamb without spot or stain.

1    Blessed be the God and Father  

of our Lord Jesus Christ!

2    By his great mercy we have been born anew to a living hope  

through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,

3    Into an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled and unfading,  

kept in heaven for you,

4    Who are being protected by the power of God through faith,  

for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

5    You were ransomed from the futile ways of your ancestors  

not with perishable things like silver or gold

6    But with the precious blood of Christ  

like that of a lamb without spot or stain.

7    Through him you have confidence in God,

who raised him from the dead and gave him glory,  

so that your faith and hope are set on God.

1 Peter 1.3-5,18,19,21

All   Glory to the Father and to the Son

and to the Holy Spirit;

as it was in the beginning is now

and shall be for ever. Amen.

All   God raised Christ from the dead,

the Lamb without spot or stain.
