"Most glorious Lord of life! that, on this day,
Didst make thy triumph over death and sin;
And having harrowed hell, didst bring away
Captivity thence captive, us to win...
[Grant] that thy love we weighing worthily,
May likewise love thee for the same again;
And for thy sake, that all like dear didst buy,
With love may one another entertain:
So let us love, dear Love, like as we ought;
Love is the lesson which the Lord us taught."
- Edmund Spenser, from Amoretti (16th century)
