The Easter Anthems (BCP)

1    Christ our passover is sacrificed for us :

therefore let us keep the feast;

2    Not with the old leaven,

    nor with the leaven of malice and wickedness :

but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.

1 Corinthians 5.7b, 8

3    Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more :

death hath no more dominion over him.

4    For in that he died, he died unto sin once :

but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God.

5    Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin :

but alive unto God, through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Romans 6.9-11

6    Christ is risen from the dead :

and become the first fruits of them that slept.

7    For since by man came death :

by man came 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 be to the Father, and to the Son :

and to the Holy Ghost;

as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be :

world without end. Amen.
