O Death,

where is your sting? 

O Hell,

where is your victory?

Christ is risen!

Death is overthrown.

 Christ is risen!

The demons are fallen.

 Christ is risen!

The angels rejoice.

Christ is risen!

Life reigns.

Christ is risen!

Not one dead remains in the grave. 

For Christ,

being risen from the dead,

has become the first-fruits

of those who have fallen asleep.

 

To Him be glory and dominion

unto ages of ages.

Amen.
