Maronite Year XLII

Fourth Sunday of the Resurrection
Hebrews 13:18-25; John 21:1-14

The God of peace raised our Lord Christ;
we have a Shepherd for our flock.
Through the blood of His covenant,
may He complete our works in His will,
making us like Him in glory.

Lovely is Sunday, brightest day!
The devil has been overcome;
death has been defeated with life;
the promise of peace has appeared;
hope showers on those in the tombs;
the disciples rejoice in Christ,
for they have seen the Son of God.
They gathered in the upper room,
crying, Praise to You, Lord and God!

Today the Lord rose from the tomb;
death and the devil He conquered.
Your servants praise You, O Savior!
Your saints rejoice in Your great Name,
which gives life to Adam's children.
