Christ is Risen! A Serbian Festival of Rejoicing

I'm going to violate my "a cappella" rule for this splendid piece on Bright Monday. It's a pleasure to listen and a delight to watch.
I live and breathe for the day when we can somehow celebrate Easter on the same Sunday. In the meantime, I celebrate twice! This is the season of rejoicing - not just for us, but for all of creation!

Here are the lyrics (taken from YouTube):


People rejoice, all nations listen:
Christ God is risen! Let us rejoice!Dance all ye stars and sing all ye mountains:Christ God is risen! Let us rejoice!
Whisper ye woods and blow all ye winds:Christ God is risen! Let us rejoice!O seas proclaim and roar all ye beasts:Christ God is risen! Let us rejoice!
Buzz all ye bees and sing all ye birds:Christ God is risen! Let us rejoice!O little lambs rejoice and be merry:Christ God is risen! Let us rejoice!

Nightengales joyous, lending your song:Christ God is risen! Let us rejoice!Ring, O ye bells, let everyone hear:Christ God is risen! Let us rejoice!
All angels join us, singing this song:Christ God is risen! Let us rejoice!Come down ye heavens, draw near the earth:Christ God is risen! Let us rejoice!
Glory to Thee, God Almighty!Christ God is risen! Let us rejoice!Glory to Thee, God Almighty!Christ God is risen! Let us rejoice!
Christos Voskrese! (Christ is Risen!)
Voistinu Voskrese! (Indeed, He is Risen!)
