Latin.png Latin text

1. Ad coenam agni providi,
et stolis albis candidi,
post transitum maris Rubri
Christo canamus principi.

2. Cujus corpus sanctissimum
in ara crucis torridum,
cruore ejus roseo
gustando vivimus Deo.

3. Protecti paschae vespere,
a devastante angelo
erepti de durissimo
Pharaonis imperio.

4. Jam pascha nostrum Christus est,
qui immolatus agnus est,
sinceritatis azyma,
caro ejus oblata est.

5. O vere digna hostia,
per quam fracta sunt tartara,
redempta plebs captivata,
reddita vitae praemia.

6. Consurgit Christus tumulo,
victor redit de barathro,
tyrannum trudens vinculo
et reserans Paradisum

7. Quaesumus auctor omnium,
in hoc paschali gaudio
ab omni mortis impetu
tuum defende populum.

8. Gloria tibi Domine,
qui surrexisti a mortuis,
cum Patre et Sancto Spiritu,
in sempiterna saecula.
Amen.
