Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! The Lord is risen!
The Word was made flesh and dwelt among us,
He lived, ate, cried, laughed, suffered and died as we all do.
And then He rose from the dead not for Himself but for us,
so that we too can rise above suffering and death,
above human arrogance, above indifference and selfishness.
Let this Easter remind us that whatever good we do,
we do not do it for ourselves but for others.
Only then can we truly meet with the Lord and sing,
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! My Lord has raised me up!
