Gleanings from Orthodox Christian Authors and the Holy Fathers


The women, with mingled joy and fear, rejoicing and sorrow, Turned away from the tomb, as the Bible teaches, To meet the apostles; and they said: "Why are you disheartened? Why do you hide your faces? Lift up your hearts, Christ is risen; Form choruses and say along with us: `The Lord is risen.' He has shone forth, He Who was created before the dawn; So not be downcast, but take courage; Spring has appeared; come to bloom, ye branches, Producing fruit and not misery. Let us all clap our hands and say: `He has returned to life, He Who offers resurrection to the fallen.' St Romanos the Melodist - On The Resurrection VI
