"Christ lay in death's bonds handed over for our sins,
He is risen again and has brought us life;
For this we should be joyful, praise God
and be thankful to Him and sing Alleluia, Alleluia!"
- Christ Lag in Todesbanden, from Cantata No. 4, JS Bach
“If Christ dwells within us, what do we need?
What do we lack?
If we dwell in Christ, what more could we desire?
He is our host and our dwelling-place.
Happy are we to be His home!
to be ourselves the dwelling-place
of such an inhabitant!”
St Nicolas Cabasilas (+1391)
