Christ our Passover has been sacrificed for us;
therefore let us keep the feast,
Not with the old leaven, the leaven of malice and evil,
but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.
Christ being raised from the dead will never die again;
death no more hath dominion over him.
The death that He died, He died to sin, once for all;
But the life He lives, He lives to God.

and alive to God in Jesus Christ our Lord.
