As sung by the Solemn Eucharist Choir of St. Thomas's church, Toronto, from their album Gladdening Light.
The dawn glows with rosy light, heaven resounds with praises, the world rejoices in exultation, hell groans and shrieks; When that most mighty King, shattering the power of death, crushes hell underfoot and releases wretched man from punishment. He, who was closed in with a stone under guard of the soldiery, triumphant now in noble pomp rises victorious from death. With all weeping spent and all hell's anguish, that the Lord is risen in glory the angel now proclaims. We pray you, Creator of all things, in this great Easter joy, that from all assaults of death you defend your people. Glory to you, Lord, who are risen from the dead, with the Father and with the Holy Spirit for endless ages. Amen.
