The Hymnbook

For Easter Monday

[N.13] "Is qui prius"



He Who earlier put on mortal habit, that He might fight, now, rising again in immortality, hath assumed a body free from all suffering, that He might rule over heavens and earth and sea.

Who, raised to the seat of His Father, with His right hand giveth course to the rivers and voice, and strengtheneth alway the Christian sphere, and holdeth the waves of the sea in such check that He stablisheth mightily a firm foundation for His Church, and His House shineth unto the end of days.
