The Resurrection of Christ

Christ is risen from the dead,
trampling down death by death;
and upon those in the tombs
bestowing life!

From the Paschal Homily of Saint John Chrysostom:

O death, where is thy sting? O Hades, where is thy victory?

Christ is risen, and you are overthrown!

Christ is risen, and the demons are fallen!

Christ is risen, and the angels rejoice!

Christ is risen, and life reigns!

Christ is risen, and not one dead remains in a tomb!

For Christ, being raised from the dead, has become the First-fruits of them that slept.

To him be glory and might unto ages of ages. Amen.
