Responsorium:
Velum templi scissum est,
et omnis terra tremuit:
Latro de cruce clamabat, dicens:
Memento mei, Domine, dum veneris in regnum tuum.

Versus:
Petrae scissae sunt, et monumenta aperta sunt,
et multa corpora sanctorum qui dormierant, surrexerunt.
Et omnis terra tremuit:
Latro de cruce clamabat, dicens:
Memento mei, Domine, dum veneris in regnum tuum.

The veil of the temple was rent
and all the earth trembled.

Remember me, Lord, when thou comest into thy kingdom.

The rocks were split, and the graves were opened;
and many bodies of the saints who slept, arose.
and all the earth trembled.
The robber from the cross cried out, saying:
