Christ is Risen!  Indeed He Is Risen!!!

The Paschal Hours

From the Holy and Great Sunday of Pascha until the Saturday of Renewal Week, in place of the usual Morning and Evening Prayers, Nocturns, the Hours, Compline, and the Prayers of Thanksgiving after Holy Communion, the following is read:

After the exclamation by the priest, we say:

Christ is risen from the dead, trampling down death by death, and upon those in the tombs, bestowing life. (3 times)

Let us who have beheld the Resurrection of Christ worship our holy Lord Jesus, Who is alone without sin.  We worship Thy Cross, O Christ, and we praise and glorify Thy holy Resurrection.  For Thou are our God, and we know none other beside Thee, and we call upon Thy Name.  Come, all ye faithful, let us worship Christ's holy Resurrection, for behold, through the Cross joy hath come to the whole world.  Forever blessing the Lord, we praise His Resurrection.  He endured the Cross for us, and by death destroyed death.  (3 times)
