The Angel Cried

I love this Paschal hymn directed to the Theotokos:

The angel cried to the Lady full of grace: Rejoice, O pure Virgin.Again I say: Rejoice. Your Son is risen from His three days in the tomb. With Himself He has raised all the dead. Rejoice, all ye people.
(Irmos) Shine! Shine! O new Jerusalem! The glory of the Lord has shone on you. Exult now and be glad, O Zion. Be radiant, O pure Theotokos, in the resurrection of your Son.

If you click on the link below and find #18 you can hear it. It is beautiful!
