Light Triumphant is an Easter Vigil service, which may be used as an entity in itself or with the Good Friday Tenebrae, "Out of Darkness Came the Dawn."

Light Triumphant features the Easter eve service beginning with all appointments removed from the church chancel area and slowly, dramatically, with appropriate scripture readings and hymns, returns the usual chancel appointments to their places in preparation for the Celebration of the Resurrection.
