In the light of Easter dawn,
   while disciples in whispers
   passed their despair one to another,
you arose at the call of the Father,
bringing light and immortality to light,
   warming hearts with inextinguishable joy,
   and rehabilitating doubters and deniers
with a love that overpowers the gates of hell.

Jesus, the Word made flesh,
   Jesus, friend of sinners,
Reconciler of the whole universe,
   the resurrection and the life;
Heaven and earth are full of your glory!
Our allegiance and gratitude are yours for ever!

All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. It is by his great mercy that we have been born again, because God raised Jesus Christ from the dead. Now we live with great expectation, and we have a priceless inheritance—an inheritance that is kept in heaven for you, pure and undefiled, beyond the reach of change and decay.
