The Stichera of the Resurrection

resurrection-of-christ-with-angels-orthodox-christian-icon-11

Your cross, O Lord, is life and resurrection to Your people,
And we place our hope in it.
Therefore, we sing to You:
O, our risen God, have mercy on us!

Your burial, O Master, opened paradise to the human race.
Delivered from death,
We now sing to You:
O, our risen God, have mercy on us!

With the Father and the Spirit,
Let us glorify Christ, risen from the dead.
Let us cry out to Him with a full voice:
You are our life and resurrection:
have mercy on us!

You arose from the tomb on the third day,
as it was written, O Christ,
And raised our ancestors with You.
Therefore, the human race glorifies You
And praises Your holy resurrection.
