Lord, open our lips, And our mouth shall proclaim your praise. O God, make speed to save us. O Lord, make haste to help us. Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit: as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen. Alleluia! Invitatory:Alleluia! The Lord is risen indeed: O come, let us worship. Canticle: Alleluia!Christ our Passover has been sacrificed for us; * therefore let us keep the feast,Not with the old leaven, the leaven of malice and evil, * but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth. Alleluia! Christ being raised from the dead will never die again; * death no longer has dominion over him. The death that he died, he died to sin, once for all; * but the life he lives, he lives to God. So also consider yourselves dead to sin, *and alive to God in Jesus Christ our Lord. Alleluia! Christ has been raised from the dead, *the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep. For since by a man came death, *by a man has come also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, *so also in Christ shall all be made alive. Alleluia! PAUSE FOR PSALM AND READINGSAffirmation of Faith Hear, O Israel,the Lord our God, the Lord is one.
