The Bridegroom is Risen!


Khristos voskrese iz mertvykh,
Smertiyu smert poprav,
E sushchim vo grobekh
Zhivot darovav!

Let God arise, and his enemies be scattered, and let those that hate him flee before his face.

Christós anésti ek nekrón,
thanáto thánaton patísas,
ké tís en tís mnímasi,
zoín charisámenos!

As smoke vanishes, so let them vanish, as wax melts at the presence of fire.

Christus surrexit a mortuis,
Morte mortem calcavit,
Et entibus in sepulchris
Vitam donavit.

So shall the wicked perish at the presence of God; and let the just be glad.

Christ is risen from the dead,
Trampling down death by death,
And upon those in the tombs
Bestowing life!

This is the day which the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.

Cristo ressuscitou dos mortos,
calcando morte pela morte,
e a eles nos tumulos
outorgando vida!

Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit.

Khristos voskrese iz mertvykh,
Smertiyu smert poprav,
E sushchim vo grobekh
Zhivot darovav!

Both now and for ever, and to the ages of ages. Amen.

Khristos voskrese iz mertvykh,
Smertiyu smert poprav,
E sushchim vo grobekh
Zhivot darovav!

A polyphonic version of the Paschal Tropar:


Another version:



Christ is risen from the dead,
Trampling down death by death,
And upon those in the tombs
Bestowing life!

The Bridegroom is risen!
His sacrifice has been consummated,
atoning for the sins of His Bride,
and raising Her to the purity in which He deserves to receive Her!

In the sun hath He set His tabernacle; and He, like a bridegroom coming forth from his chamber, will rejoice like a giant to run his course.

The Bridegroom is risen!
His sacrifice has been consummated,
atoning for the sins of His Bride,
and raising Her to the purity in which He deserves to receive Her!

From the outermost border of heaven is His going forth, and His goal is unto the outermost part of heaven, and there shall no man hide himself from His heat.

The Bridegroom is risen!
His sacrifice has been consummated,
atoning for the sins of His Bride,
and raising Her to the purity in which He deserves to receive Her!

The law of the Lord is blameless, converting souls; the testimony of the Lord is trustworthy, bringing wisdom to infants.

The Bridegroom is risen!
His sacrifice has been consummated,
atoning for the sins of His Bride,
and raising Her to the purity in which He deserves to receive Her!

Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit.

The Bridegroom is risen!
His sacrifice has been consummated,
atoning for the sins of His Bride,
and raising Her to the purity in which He deserves to receive Her!

Both now and for ever, and to the ages of ages. Amen.

The Bridegroom is risen!
His sacrifice has been consummated,
atoning for the sins of His Bride,
and raising Her to the purity in which He deserves to receive Her!
