“Restore to me the joy of Your salvation.”
Psalm 51:12

By nothing else, except the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ,
has death been brought low:
The sin of our first parent destroyed,
hell plundered,
resurrection bestowed,
the power given us to despise the things of this world,
even death itself,
the road back to the former blessedness made smooth,
the gates of paradise opened, 
our nature seated at the right hand of God,
and we made children and heirs of God.

John of Damascus, 8th century
