Saint Gregory the Great’s Easter Prayer

It is only right,
with all the powers of our heart and mind,
to praise You Father
and Your Only-begotten Son,
Our Lord Jesus Christ:

Dear Father, by Your wondrous
condescension of loving-kindness toward us,
Your servants, You gave up Your Son.
Dear Jesus You paid the debt of Adam
for us to the Eternal Father by
Your Blood poured
fourth in loving-kindness.

You cleared away the darkness of sin
By Your magnificent and radiant Resurrection.
You broke the bonds of death
and rose from the grave as a Conqueror.
You reconciled heaven and earth.
Our life had no hope of eternal happiness
before You redeemed us.

Your Resurrection has washed away our sins,
restored our innocence and brought us joy.
How inestimable is the tenderness
of Your love!

  1. Jésus, toi qui t’es évidé
    en prenant la forme de serviteur
    Jusqu’à la mort, la mort sur la croix,
    enseigne -nous à dire, au jour de la détresse,
    ou peut être de l’agonie,
    “Pére, entre tes mains je remets mon exprit”

    Désormais le ciel, le terre et l’enfer sont pleins de lumière
    Rien ne peut nous séparer de toi.
    “Où irai – je loin de ton esprit?
    Qu’en enfer je me cache, te voici.

    O Berger immolé,
    prends- nous sur tes épaules pour nous ramener vers ton Père.
    Qu’en toi l’athée le plus douloureux trouve enfin la réponse.

    Louange à toi, Jésus notre Dieu
    Parce que de la croix du désespoir
    tu fais la croix pascale.
