Easter felicitations to everybody
Calvary greetings to the brethren
Greetings from him who journeyed to the cross
Greetings from him whose blood was shed
Calvary greetings from the throne of grace.
The blood of the lamb who was sacrificed
The blood of him who is spotless of sins
An atonement for the sins of all mankind
For our sake he went to the tree on Calvary
For our salvation he was crucified on the cross.
We celebrate his death and resurrection
By his death our sins were washed away
By his resurrection eternal life is given
He so loved the world that he gave his life
For this he came down from his throne.
He was reproached and humiliated though Innocent
He was forsaken to the cross by his own
Nails piercing his hands and feet to the cross
In his pains he was cajoled and ridiculed
With passion and love he bore a shameful death.
His bodily temple destroyed and he was buried
Death he defeated and rose after three days
He ascended into heaven and sent us a comforter
The risen Christ is alive yes Christ lives forever
At Easter we rejoice and commemorate his Victory.
