The Angel Cried

Paschal Canon - Ode 9
The angel cried to the Lady full of grace: Rejoice, O pure Virgin.
Again I say: Rejoice. Thy Son is risen from His three days in the tomb.
With himself has he raised all the dead. Rejoice, all ye people.
Shine! Shine! O new Jerusalem!
The glory of the Lord has shone on you.
Exult now and be glad, O Zion.
Be radiant, O pure Theotokos, in the resurrection of thy Son.
