I arose and I am still with Thee. Alleluia, alleluia! Thou hast laid Thine hand upon me, alleluia. Thy knowledge has become wonderful. Alleluia, alleluia. [Ps.] Lord, Thou hast probed me and known me. Thou knowest my sitting down and my rising up. Glory be.... I arose and I am still with Thee. Alleluia, alleluia! Thou hast laid Thine hand upon me, alleluia. Thy knowledge has become wonderful. Alleluia, alleluia.


O God, who on this day, through Thine only begotten Son has overcome death and opened to us the gate of everlasting life; do Thou follow with Thine aid the desires which Thou dost put into our minds, and by Thy continual help, bring the same to good effect. Through the same Jesus Christ....

Epistle: 1 Corinthians v: 7-8

A reading from the Epistle of Blessed Paul the apostle to the Corinthians.
Brethren, purge out the old leaven, that you may be a new dough, as you really are without leaven. For Christ, our passover, has been sacrificed. Therefore, let us keep festival, not with the old leaven, nor with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.

Gradual: Ps. cxvii: 24, 1

This is the day which the Lord hath made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it. Give praise unto the Lord for He is good; for His mercy endures forever. Alleluia, alleluia! Christ, our pasch, is sacrificed. Alleluia!


Forth to the Paschal Victim, Christians, bring
Your sacrifice of praise:
The Lamb redeems the sheep;
And Christ, the sinless One,
Hath to the Father sinners reconciled.
Together death and life
In strange conflict strove.
The Prince of Life, who died,
Now lives and reigns.
What thou sawest, Mary, say,
As thou wentest on the way.
"I saw the tomb wherein the living One had lain,
I saw His glory as He rose again;
Napkin and linen cloths, and angels twain:
Yea, Christ has risen, my hope, and He
Will go before you into Galilee."
We know that Christ has risen from the grave:
Hail, Thou, King of Victory,
Have mercy Lord, and save.
Amen. Alleluia.

The Sequence is repeated throughout the octave.

Gospel: Mark xvi: 1-7

+ The continuation of the Holy Gospel according to Mark:
At that time, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome, brought spices that they might go and anoint Jesus. And very early on the first day of the week, they came to the tomb, when the sun had just risen. And they were saying to one another, "Who will roll the stone back from the entrance of the tomb for us?" And looking up they saw that the stone had been rolled back, for it was very large. But on entering the tomb, they saw a young man sitting at the right side, clothed in a white robe, and they were amazed. He said to them, "Do not be terrified. You are looking for Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He is risen. He is not here. Behold the place where they laid Him. But go and tell His disciples and Peter that He goes before you into Galilee; there you shall see Him as He told you."


Offertory Ps. lxxv: 9-10

The earth trembled and was still when God arose in judgment. Alleluia!


Accept, we beseech Thee, O Lord, the prayers of Thy people with the oblation of sacrifice; that what we have begun by these paschal mysteries, by Thy operation may profit us for a healing remedy unto life everlasting....
