Original text and translations
The Lord is risen!
This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; Death hath no more dominion over him.
For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God.
Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.
If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.
