When Thou didst descend to death 0 Life Immortal, Thou didst slay hell with the splendor of Thy Divinity! And when from the depths Thou didst raise the dead, all the hosts of the heavens cried out: O Giver of Life! Christ our God! Glory to Thee!

The angel standing by the grave cried out to the women: Myrrh is proper for the dead, but Christ has shown himself a stranger to corruption.
