You have destroyed Death by your Cross, you opened paradise to the thief. The sorrow of the myrr-bearers you turned to joy. You command your apostles to proclaim, Christ Our God is risen, granting great mercy to the world.
Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit, now and ever and forever Amen
No longer can the might of death rule over us. Christ descended destroying and crushing its power. Hades remains enchained the prophets rejoice together. The Savior has appeared saying to those in darkness come forth Faithful to the Resurrection.
