“Let the Angels of God exult!...
Be glad, let earth be glad!
…As glory floods her
ablaze with light from her eternal King
…O truly blessed night
when things of heaven are wed to those of earth
and divine to the human…
The one Morning Star that never sets,
Christ, your Son,
who coming back from death’s domain
has shed his peaceful light
on all humanity
and lives and reigns forever and forever…”
--from the Exultet, Easter vigil proclamation based on 2012 text from
music by Jerome Nicholas Pintar
