Hymns of Resurrection Part 3

The Hymn Tolitho is next in our series of the Coptic hymnology of Easter!

Lyrics:

While the stone was sealed by the Jews and Your holy body was guarded by the soldiers You arose on the third day O Savior, granting life to the world.

For that reason the heavenly hosts cry out to You, O Doner of life “Glory be to Your Resurrection O Christ, glory be to Your kingdom, glory be to Your planning, You are the only Lover of mankind.”
