Let God Arise

Let God arise, let his enemies be scattered; let those who hate him flee from before his face!
As smoke vanishes, so let them vanish; as wax melts before the fire,
So the sinners will perish before the face of God; but let the righteous be glad.
This is the day which the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it!
Christ is risen from the dead, trampling down death by death, and on those in the grave bestowing life.

A beautiful hymn from the Orthodox Midnight Pascha Service – Pascal Canon by B. Ledkovsky plus The Angel Cried by M. Balakirev sung by the Spirit of Orthodoxy Choir on 5/15/2011 in Manville, NJ

Paschal Canon B. Ledkovsky (1894-1975)

Text: Ode 1
This is the day of resurrection. Let us be illumined, O people. Pascha, the Pascha of the Lord! For from death to life and from earth to heaven has Christ our God led us, as we sing the song of victory.

Ode 3
Come let us drink, not miraculous water drawn forth from a barren stone, but a new vintage from the fount of incorruption springing from the tomb of Christ, in Him we are established.

Ode 6
Thou didst descend, O Christ, to the depths of the earth. Thou didst break the everlasting bars which had held death’s captives and like Jonah from the whale on the third day, Thou didst arise from the grave.

Ode 8
This is the chosen and holy day, first of Sabbaths, king and lord of days, the feast of feasts, holy day of Holy days: on this day we bless Christ forevermore.

Ode 9
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 your Son!

The Angel Cried M. Balakirev (1837–1910)

The angel cried to the Lady full of grace: Rejoice, O pure Virgin. Again I say, Rejoice! Your Son is risen from His three days in the tomb! With Himself He has raised all the dead. Rejoice, O ye people!
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 your Son.
