Christ Is Risen

TheRisenChrist[1]

Christ is risen: the world below lies desolate.
Christ is risen: the spirits of evil are fallen.
Christ is risen: the angels of God are rejoicing.
Christ is risen: the tombs of the dead are empty.
Christ is risen indeed from the dead,
the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep.
Glory and power are his forever and ever.
