Since Christ has been raised from the dead,
he will never die again.
Death no longer has control over him.
For the death he died, he died to sin once and for all,
but the life he lives, he lives to God. (Romans 6:9-10)
Let his enemies now tell us
how the soldiers who guarded the tomb
lost the King, even though they had placed a rock over him.
Why did they not keep the Rock of Salvation?
Let them show the One who was buried,
or adore with us the risen One, saying:
“The life he lives, he lives to God!”
