10 April 2023 – Easter

Up! Up!

Jesus, young dead of spring

in haste, unseen, unbeknownst to us,

before the sun,

You rolled away the stone that imprisoned life

Like a door freed from its hinges, it flutters to the four winds!

And we, astonished with joy

overwhelmed by daring to believe,

the song comes to our lips before the words:

Alleluia, Alleluia!

Praise be to you, Jesus, the First Living!
