Spring up, O Heart, from your slumber;
behold the Risen Light of Christ!
Let us raise our praises to Our Redeemer,
who has shattered the chains of death forever!
Risen Christ, unbind the shroud around our hearts,
that we may rise with You into new life,
bound only by the law of love and service.
Just as you commissioned Mary Magdalene
to proclaim your resurrection,
may we shout the story of salvation and sing songs of joy
telling the glad news to the ends of the Earth.
Almighty God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,
You have opened the gates of everlasting life before us:
draw into your embrace all those for whom we pray.
