He is risen

Hymn from Matins in Paschaltide: 

O Thou, the heavens’ eternal King,
Creator, unto Thee we sing,
With God the Father ever One,
Co-equal, co-eternal Son.

               Thy Hand, when first the world began,
               Made in thine own pure image man,
               And linked to Adam, sprung from earth,
               A living soul of heavenly birth.

And when by craft the envious foe
Had marred Thy noblest work below,
Clothed in our flesh, Thou didst restore
The image Thou hadst made before

Once wast Thou born of Mary’s womb;
And now, new-born from out the tomb
O Christ, Thou bidd’stus rise with Thee
From death to immortality.

Eternal Shepherd Thou dost lave
Thy flock in pure baptismal wave,
That mystic bath, that grave of sin,
Where ransomed souls new life begin.

Redeemer, Thou for us didst deign
To hang upon the Cross of pain,
And give for us the lavish price
Of Thine own blood in sacrifice.

Grant, Lord. in Thee each faithful mind
Unceasing paschal joy may find;
And from the death of sin set free
Souls newly born to life by Thee.

To Thee, once dead, who now dost live,
All glory, Lord, Thy people give,
Whom, with the Father, we adore,
And Holy Ghost forever more. Amen

A living soul of heavenly birth.
