"O women, hearken to the voice of rejoicing..."

Christ is risen! Truly He is risen!
The Holy Myrrhbearers greeted by the Angel at the Tomb of Christ (source)
O women, hearken to the voice of rejoicing, for the tyrant Hades has been trampled upon, and the world has been raised up from corruption. Hasten, tell the glad tidings to My friends, for I desire that my creation, from which came forth sorrow, would be the same to shine forth joy.
-Exaposteilarion for the Sunday of the Holy Myrrhbearers

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!
