Gaudent in caelis animae Sanctorum,
qui Christi vestigia sunt secuti;
et quia pro ejus amore sanguinem suum fuderunt,
ideo cum Christo exsultant sine fine


English.png English translation

In heaven rejoice the souls of the saints,
who have followed the steps of Christ;
and, because for his love they shed their blood,
therefore with Christ they exult forever
