Lamb of God, O Paschal Victim

Tune: TLH #149

Rev. Eric J. Stefanski, 3/99

Lamb of God, O Paschal Victim
Who alone does grace afford,
In this Pascal feast, Redeemer,
Be by one and all adored--
Once by all the world reviled,
Paschal Victim undefiled!

Thought a lamb before had given
Never to it's slaught'rers' need;
But You, Christ, O Lamb from Heaven,
Solely came our souls to feed--
Though by us You were reviled,
Paschal Victim undefiled!

On the night of Your betrayal
You the faithful gift did give:
Blood and Body for a Supper,
That our starving souls should live--
Though by all the world reviled,
Paschal Victim undefiled!

In Your blood and body offered
Upon Calv'ry's curs-ed tree,
Grace and pardon now are proffered
From the altar bodily--
Though by all the world reviled,
Paschal Victim undefiled!

As we view Your body, Savior,
We in adoration fall,
For Your flesh is heav'nly manna,
Which alone gives life to all--
Though by all the world reviled,
Paschal Victim undefiled!

As the blood once marked the doorposts
Of Your sons in slavery,
May Your blood forever mark us
As those by Your death set free,
And to God now reconciled,
Paschal Victim undefiled!
