Amen, Alleluia, amen, amen!
The Lord of the Ages was given death,
The God, full-incarnate as Man, for all men;
The glorified Christ has now drawn first breath!
The Life of the World is alive once more.
The Light of the World has rejoiced anew!
The Flame that consumed our disease to the core!
The Love that descended like heavenly dew!
Arise, you Benighted, you mournful sheep;
Arise, O you hearts; you, the lost, the least;
Arise from your death, all your timorous sleep.
Arise in the light of this high paschal feast!
