Christ rising agayne from the dead, now...
Language: English 
Christ rising agayne from the dead, now dyeth not. 
Death from henceforth hath no power uppon him. 
For in that he dy'd, he dy'd but once to put away sinne, 
but in that he lyveth, he lyveth unto God. 
In Christ Jesus our Lord.

Christ is risen againe, the first fruits of them that sleepe, 
forseeing, that by man came death, 
by man also commeth the resurrection of the dead. 
For as by Adam all men do dye, so by Christ 
all men shal be restored to lyfe. Amen.
