Incensing of the Members of the
Mystical Body of Christ
When words, chant, incense,
all run their course and fall short;
when there is still more needed,
when the mystery is utterly ineffable;
mortal man goes on,
by ringing out
"...Scimus Christum surrexisse
a mortuis vere:
Tu nobis Victor Rex,
Miserere. Amen. Alleluia.
...We know that Christ indeed has risen from the grave;
Hail Thou King of Victory,
Have mercy Lord, and save. Amen. Alleluia! "
