“Joy to all creatures, honour, feasting, delight.
Dark death is destroyed
and life is restored everywhere.
The gates of heaven are open.
God has shown himself human,
humanity has gone up to him a God.
The gates of hell God has shattered,
the bars of Adam’s prison broken.
The people of the world below have risen
     from the dead,
bringing good news:
what was promised is fulfilled.
From the earth has come singing and dancing.”

Attributed to Hippolytus, 3rd century
