Text and translations
Crucem tuam adoramus, Domine
et sanctum resurrectionem tuam laudamus, et glorificamus
ecce enim propter lignum venit gaudium in universo mundo.
Deus misereatur nostri, et benedicat nobis.
Illuminet vultum suum super nos, et misereatur nostri.
We adore Thy Cross, O Lord
and we praise and glorify Thy holy Resurrection
for behold by the wood of the Cross joy has come into the whole world.
May God have mercy on us, and bless us
may He cause the light of His countenance to shine upon us, and have mercy on us.
