Paschal Time, Day 33

Eastertide, the 33rd Day

This joyful Eastertide,
Away with sin and sorrow!
My love, the Crucified,
Has sprung to life this morrow.
Had Christ, who once was slain,
Not burst his three-day prison,
Our faith had been in vain,
But now has Christ arisen, arisen, arisen,
But now has Christ arisen!

~Hymn: LBW 149
