My hope, is the Father
My refuge, the Son,
My rampart, the Holy Spirit
Holy Trinity, glory be to You.
You have delighted us, Lord, with the riches of your Creation and we are in a state of joy because of your works. Upon us, the
light of your countenance has risen. Lord, you have filled my heart with joy greater than the abundance of flour, of wine and of
oil, You alone, Lord, You establish me in hope.
All the universe is now filled with light, the sky, the earth, the underworld. All of Creation is celebrating the Resurrection of
Christ, our hope and our joy. Yesterday I was buried ; with You, oh Christ, I awaken today, and am taking part in your
Resurrection after the suffering of the Crucifixion. Grant me the hope of sharing the glory of the kingdom of Heaven.
