For Eastertide

For Steve Collins

Great angels all adore Him

and hearts both brave and true.
Behold the Living Saviour
Who makes creation new!
Though slain from the foundation
of all the world we know,
He triumphs over evil,
and in His steps we go.

Remember how in Egypt
God's people decked the door
with blood from lambs to mark them
their sons Death would passo'er.
The Lamb of God, of Mary
has shed His Blood to sign
the Cross, the Christian's doorway
into the Life divine.

Death's stronghold could not hold Him.
The gates of hell He smashed.
Christ frees from Satan's clutching
all souls His Blood has washed.
From death, alive and risen
in victory to reign,
He soon returns. Behold Him!
Hallelujah! Amen!
