...we who celebrate with reverence the Paschal feast...

From the Daily Offices for Easter Week in the Book of Divine Worship.

Collect for Easter Monday.
Grant, we beseech thee, Almighty God, that we who celebrate with reverence the Paschal feast may be found worthy to attain to everlasting joys; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

Pascha nostrum

Alleluia. Christ our Passover is sacrificed for us;*
therefore let us keep the feast,

Not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness,*
but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth. Alleluia.

Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more;*
death hath no more dominion over him.

For in that he died, he died unto sin once;*
but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God.

Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin,*
but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord. Alleluia.

Christ is risen from the dead,*
and become the first fruits of them that slept.

For since by man came death,*
by man came also the resurrection of the dead.

For as in Adam all die,*
even so in Christ shall all be made alive. Alleluia.
