HOLY PASCHA: The Resurrection of Our Lord
Christ is risen from the dead,
trampling down death by death,
and upon those in the tombs bestowing life!
Tone 8 Hypakoe (Pascha)
Before the dawn Mary and the women came
and found the stone rolled away from the tomb.
They heard the angelic voice: “Why do you seek among the dead as a Man
the One Who is everlasting Light?
Behold the clothes in the grave; go and proclaim to the world:
‘The Lord is risen; He has slain death,
as He is the Son of God, saving the race of man.’”
Tone 8 Kontakion (Pascha)
You descended into the tomb, O Immortal,
You destroyed the power of death.
In victory You arose, O Christ God, proclaiming: “Rejoice!” to the Myrrhbearing Women,//
granting peace to Your Apostles, and bestowing Resurrection on the fallen.
