A Paschal Sequence

And now that the synagogue hath scorned Thee, wandering and straying in error, Thou hast made thy Church to spread abroad, in a lineage noble through all the sunlit earth. Whence I entreat Thee, by the marks of the Cross, and by the rose-red streaming of thy blood, those whom I bring forth to Thee as my children [this is all the voice of the Church] do Thou fill with grace streaming from heaven.

This is an excerpt from an Anglo-Saxon sequence from the Paschal Vigil, and was recently sent to me by Fr Aidan. I thought I'd share it as I find it really quite beautiful.
