Next in our Series on the Coptic Hymnolgy of Easter is the Hymn Ekhristos Anesti which has two distinct tunes as you will hear below in the video from St Marks Cathedral in Egypt from this years Easter Mass. The hymn is sung after the re-enactment of our Lord Jesus Christ opening the gates of heaven! Very Upbeat!
Christ is risen from the dead, trampling down death by death, and upon those in the tombs bestowing life.
Glory to the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, now and forever and unto the age of all ages Amen.
