Christ is Risen!
Christ is risen from the dead,
Trampling down death by death,
And upon those in the tombs
Thou didst decend into the tomb, O Immortal,
Thou didst destroy the power of death!
In victory didst Thou arise, O Christ God,
proclaiming “Rejoice” to the myrrhbearing women,
granting peace to Thy apostles,
and bestowing resurrection to the fallen.
