Liturgical Colour : White

Victimae Paschali laudes immolent Christiani.

Agnus redemit oves :

Christus innocens Patri reconciliavit peccatores,

Mors et vita duello conflixere mirando :

Dux vitae mortuus, regnat vivus.

Dic nobis, Maria, quid vidisti in via?

Sepulcrum Christi viventis,

Et gloriam vidi resurgentis,

Angelicos testes, sudarium et vestes.

Surrexit Christus spes mea : praecedet vos in Galilaeam.

Scimus Christum surrexisse a mortuis vere :

Tu nobis, victor Rex miserere. Amen. Alleluja.

Tell us, Mary, what did you see on the way?

I saw the sepulchre of the living Christ.

I saw the glory of Him who had risen.

I saw the angelic witnesses, the napkin and the linen cloths.

Christ, my Hope, had risen. He shall go before you into Galilee.

We know in truth that Christ had risen from the dead.

You, o Victorious King, have mercy on us. Amen. Alleluia.
