At Morning Prayer, instead of the Psalm: O
come, let us, &c. these Anthems shall be sung or said.
Christ our passover
is sacrificed for us:
therefore let us keep the feast;
Not with the old leaven, nor with the leaven of malice and
but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth. 1 Cor. 5. 7.
Christ being raised from the dead dieth no
death hath no more dominion over him.
For in that he died, he died unto sin once:
but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God.
Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto
but alive unto God, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Rom. 6. 9.
Christ is risen from the dead:
and become the first-fruits of them that slept.
For since by man came death:
by man came also the resurrection of the dead.
For as in Adam all die:
even so in Christ shall all be made alive. 1 Cor. 15. 20.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son:
and to the Holy Ghost;
Answer. As it was in the
beginning, is now, and ever shall be:

Almighty God, who
through thine only-begotten Son Jesus Christ hast overcome death,
and opened unto us the gate of everlasting life: We humbly beseech
thee, that as by thy special grace preventing us thou dost put into
our minds good desires, so by thy continual help we may bring the

appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory. Mortify

uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and
covetousness, which is idolatry: for which things' sake the wrath
of God cometh on the children of disobedience: in the which ye also
walked some time, when ye lived in them.
St. John 20.1-10
The first day of

sepulchre, and seeth the stone taken away from the sepulchre. Then
she runneth and cometh to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple
whom Jesus loved, and saith unto them, They have taken away the
Lord out of the sepulchre, and we know not where they have laid

again from the dead. Then the disciples went away again unto their
