Life’s own Champion, slain,
yet lives to reign.

say what thou didst see upon the way.

I saw Christ’s glory as He rose!

sudarium et vestes.
The angels there attesting;
shroud with grave-clothes resting.
Surrexit Christus spes mea:
praecedet suos in Galilaeam.

He goes before you into Galilee.

from the dead we know.
Victorious King, Thy mercy show!
Amen. Alleluia.
