Perhaps not using exactly the same words, but this theme is a common one, especially in the services for Holy Saturday. An example is the Communion Hymn for the vesperal liturgy of Holy Saturday:

The Lord awoke as one that sleeps; and has risen and saved us. Alleluia.

It may also appear in the Resurrectional hymns of the Okhtoikhos.
