City Mall, Beirut, Lebanon, Easter 2011.

It starts, “This is the Day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it!” Then it goes to the Paschal Troparion in Arabic and Greek:

المسيح قام من بين الأموات
و وطئ الموت بالموت
و وهب الحياة
للذين في القبور

Masīh qām min baīni’l-amwāt  Wa wati’ al-mawt bi’l-mawt Wa wahab al-hayāt Lil-ladhīna fī’l-qubūr!

Χριστός Ανέστη εκ νεκρών, θανάτω θάνατον πατήσας και τοις εν τοις μνήμασιν, ζωήν χαρισάμενος.

Christos Anesti ek nekron thanato thanaton patisas ke tis en tis mnimasi, zoin kharisamenos.

Christ is risen from the dead,
Trampling down death by death,
And upon those in the tombs
Bestowing life.
