"Give sight, O Lord, to the eyes of my soul..."

Christ is risen! Truly He is risen!

Give sight, O Lord, to the eyes of my soul, maimed by gloomy sin, by grafting in humility, O merciful, and cleansing me with tears of repentance.
-Exaposteilarion from the Sunday of the Blind Man

Christ is risen from the dead, by death, trampling down upon death, and to those in the tombs, He has granted life!
Truly the Lord is risen!
