This is the night
that with a pillar of fire
banished the darkness of sin.


This is the night
that even now, throughout the world,
sets Christian believers apart from worldly vices
and from the gloom of sin,
leading them to grace
and joining them to his holy ones.


This is the night,
when Christ broke the prison-bars of death
and rose victorious from the underworld.


Our birth would have been no gain,
had we not been redeemed.

-The Exultet
