Hymn/Song Information

At the Lamb's high feast we sing Praise




At the Lamb’s high feast we sing,
Praise to our victorious King,
Who hath washed us in the tide
Flowing from his piercèd side;
Praise we Him, Whose love divine
Gives His sacred blood for wine,
Gives His body for the feast,
Christ the Victim, Christ the Priest.


Where the Paschal blood is poured,
Death’s dark angel
sheathes his sword;
Israel’s hosts triumphant go
Through the wave that drowns the foe.
Praise we Christ,
Whose blood was shed,
Paschal Victim, paschal Bread;
With sincerity and love
Eat we Manna from above.


Mighty Victim from the sky,
Hell’s fierce powers
beneath Thee lie;
Thou hast conquered in the fight,
Thou hast brought us life and light;
Now no more can death appall,
Now no more the grave enthrall;
Thou hast opened Paradise,
And in Thee Thy saints shall rise.


Paschal triumph, Easter joy,
Only sin can this destroy;
From sin’s death do Thou set free
Souls reborn, O Lord, in Thee.
Hymns of glory and of praise,
Father, to Thee we raise;
Risen Lord, all praise to Thee,
Ever with the Spirit be.

Flowing from his piercèd side;
Praise we Him, Whose love divine
Gives His sacred blood for wine,
Gives His body for the feast,
love the Victim, love the Priest.


Mighty Victim from the sky,
Powers of hell beneath Thee lie;
Death is conquered in the fight,
Thou hast brought us life and light;
Now thy banner thou does wave:,
Vanquished Satan and the grave;
Angels join his praise to tell,
See o'erthrown the prince of hell.


Paschal triumph, paschal joy,
Only sin can this destroy;
From the death of sin set free
Souls reborn, dear Lord, in Thee.
Hymns of glory, songs of praise,
Father, unto Thee we raise;
Risen Lord, all praise to Thee,
Ever with the Spirit be.
