The Hymnbook

For Easter Tuesday

[N.14] "Christe domine laetifica"



O Christ, our Lord, gladden Thou the Church, Thy spouse, on these feast days, on which, o Christ, Thou didst espouse her to Thyself by bestowing on her a dower that is truly marvellous!

Then, Thou didst comfort holy women and men, saddened at Thy death, by rising again.

Now, sitting at the right hand of Thy Father, protect Thou us, o Christ, from every assault of death!
