O Christ, true Son of God,
Lamb who was slain, now risen in glory,
listen to our prayers.
Grant that we may die to all that is evil,
and rise to good works;
through your mercy, O our God,
you are blessed,
and live and govern all things,
now and forever.
“Lamb who was slain, now risen in glory” is a reference to Revelation 5:12
“die to all that is evil” is a reference to Romans 6:11
