1 Christ our passover has been sacrificed for us: ♦
so let us celebrate the feast,
2 not with the old leaven of corruption and wickedness: ♦
but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.
1 Corinthians 5.7b, 8
3 Christ once raised from the dead dies no more: ♦
death has no more dominion over him.
4 In dying he died to sin once for all: ♦
in living he lives to God.
5 See yourselves therefore as dead to sin: ♦
and alive to God in Jesus Christ our Lord.
6 Christ has been raised from the dead: ♦
the first fruits of those who sleep.
7 For as by man came death: ♦
by man has come also the resurrection of the dead;
8 for as in Adam all die: ♦
even so in Christ shall all be made alive.
1 Corinthians 15.20–22
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.
