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.
To the Paschal Victim, let Christians offer the sacrifice of praise.
The Lamb had redeemed the sheep.
Christ the Sinless One had reconciled sinners to His Father.
Death and Life contended in a wondrous encounter,
The Prince of Life died indeed, but now reigns living.
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.
