Text & English Translation
Victimæ pashali laudes immolent Christiani.
Agnus redemit oves:
Christus innocens Patri reconciliavit peccatores.
Mors et vita duello conflixere mirando:
dux vitæ mortuus, regnat vivus.
Dic nobis Maria, quid vidisti in via?
Sepulchrum Christi viventis, et gloriam vidi resurgentis:
Angelicos testes, sudarium, et vestes.
Surrexit Christus spes mea: præcedet suos in Galilæam.
Scimus Christum surrexisse
a mortuis vere: tu nobis, victor Rex, miserere. Amen. Alleluia.
Forth to the Paschal Victim, Christians, bring your sacrifice of praise;
The Lamb redeems the sheep;
and Christ, the sinless one, has to the Father sinners reconciled.
Together, death and life in a strange conflict strove;
the Prince of Life, who died, now lives and reigns.
What thou saw, May, say, as thou went on the way.
I saw the tomb wherein the living One had lain; I saw his glory as he rose again;
Napkin and linen clothes, and Angels twain.
Yea, Christ is risen, my hope, and he will go before you into Galilee.
We know that Christ indeed has risen from the grave. Hail, thou King of Victory, have mercy, Lord, and save. Amen.
