Totality is no longer weeping, creation once groaned,

the hunger of creation is sated by the redemption

of the Cross, the second Adam has destroyed the gates,

blasting the doors of Hades wide open. You have lifted me

from the pit.

(Bible references: 1 Corinthians 15:20-27, 44-55,

Romans 5:15-17, Romans 6:23, Psalm 103:4, and Jonah 2:6)
