Born as a son,
led forth as a lamb,
sacrificed as a sheep,
buried as a man,
He rose from the dead as a God,
for He was by nature God and Man.
He is all things: He judges, and so He is Law;
He teaches, and so He is Word;
He saves, and so He is Grace;
He begets, and so He is Father,
He is begotten, and so He is Son;
He suffers, and so He is Sacrifice;
He is buried, and so He is Man;
He rises again, and so He is God.
This is Jesus Christ, to Whom belongs Glory for all ages.

The Lord, though he was God, became man. He suffered for the sake of whose who suffer, he was bound for those in bonds, condemned for the guilty, buried for those who lie in the grave; but he rose from the dead, and cried aloud: "Who will contend with me? Let him confront me." I have freed the condemned, brought the dead back to life, raised men from their graves. Who has anything to say against me? I, he said, am the Christ; I have destroyed death, triumphed over the enemy, trampled hell underfoot, bound the strong one, and taken men up to the heights of heaven: I am the Christ.
