The Harrowing of Hell

Today Light invades the darkness.
The darkness has no power
it can not understand the Lighti
it has no substance nor form.

Today the gates of Hell are broken.
Today Satan’s conceit is shown.
Today his petty power is overthrown.

The souls of the just cry out with joy:
“Welcome to Thee, Oh Christ our God!
Holy Divine One,
Holy Strong One,
Holy Immortal One:
Thou art come to deliver us
from out the grave
and to have mercy on us!”

Their trials are over. 
Their hope is fulfilled.
Their joy is complete. 
The new bearer of Light,
the True Day-Star, the Faithful One
the Lord of Life is come to them.

i“And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.” [Jn 1:3 KJV]
