The Orthros Service of Holy Pascha (Easter). The most widely attended service of the year, it is filled with hymns of exhortation and joyful praise, announcing the good news of Christ’s Resurrection.
This is the day of Resurrection.
Let us be radiant in the festival.
Let us embrace one another.
Let us call brothers, even those who hate us,
And forgive all things in the resurrection.
And therefore let us proclaim:
Christ is risen from the dead,
By death He has trampled upon death
and to those in the tombs
He is bestowing Life!
