Easter Sunday 2019

Praise and thanks
remain your song of praise
Hell and the devil are overcome
their gates are destroyed
Shout and cheer, you loosened tongues,
so that you are heard in heaven
Open up, you heavens,the splendid arches,
the Lion of Judah comes drawn in victory!

J.S. Bach
Easter Oratorio (BWV 249)
Final Chorus, translation by Francis Browne
