Procured to salvation


In the Easter hymn Jesus Christ id Risen Today, a verse expresses:

Our salvation have procured, Alleluia!     

Please explain procured to salvation.


I’m not exactly sure what you are asking.

The full line of the hymn is

But the pains which he endured, Alleluia!
Our salvation have procured; Alleluia!

If we were to write that in a non-poetic way we’d probably say, “The pains which He endured procured our salvation.”

In other words, Through his suffering (the pains he endured) Christ obtained our salvation.
