Truly He is risen!

Χριστος ανεστη εκ νεκρων
θανατω θανατον πατησας
και τοις εν τοις μνημασι
ζωην χαρισαμενος

Christ is risen from the dead
by death trampling Death
and to those in the tombs
bestowing Life

This is the Paschal Troparion. The words and tune are as old as Christianity itself, and are part of its universal heritage, being found in all the many languages of the Eastern Church. This troparion is joyously sung at every opportunity during the Paschal season.

Χριστος ανεστη!
Αληθως ανεστη!

Christ is risen!
Truly, He is risen!

From Pascha Sunday until Ascension, the Orthodox greeting is “Christ is risen!” The response is, “Truly, He is risen!”
