The Stichera of the Resurrection

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. 

Hymn to the Resurrection…

Pascha

 

Having beheld the Resurrection of Christ,
let us worship the holy Lord Jesus, the only Sinless One.
We worship Thy Cross, O Christ,
and thy holy Resurrection we hymn and glorify;
for Thou art our God,
and we know none other beside Thee,
We call upon Thy name.
O come, all you faithful,
let us worship Christ’s holy Resurrection,
for behold, through the Cross
joy hath come to all the world.
Ever blessing the Lord,
we hymn His Resurrection;
for having endured crucifixion,
He hath destroyed death by death.
