Original text and translations

Latin.png Latin text

Laetemur in Christo redemptore, alleluja.
Quia quem percussit Pater,
ob scelus populi sui, alleluja.
Resurexit, sicut dixit, alleluja.
Ora pro nobis Christe.
Qui ad dexteram Dei Patris locatus es,
victor peccati, mortis, inferni.
Unus es nobis propitiator,
Pontifex, Ecclesiae caput, O Rex pie.
Fac nos tecum resurgere: alleluja.

English.png English translation

Rejoice in Christ the redeemer, alleluia.
For he was struck by the Father
for the sins of his people, alleluia.
He is risen, as he said, alleluia.
Pray for us, O Christ.
Who are seated at the right hand of God the Father:
victor over sin, death, and hell.
Our sole propitiator,
High Priest, the Church's head, O loving King.
Make us rise with you, alleluia.
