It is truly right and just,
our duty and our salvation,
at all times to acclaim you, O Lord, but
Easter Vigil: on this night
Easter Sunday: on this day
above all to laud you yet more gloriously,
when Christ our Passover has been sacrificed.
For he is the true Lamb who has taken away the sins of the world;
by dying he has destroyed our death,
and by rising, restored our life.
Therefore, overcome with paschal joy, every land,
every people exults in your praise and even the heavenly Powers,
with the angelic hosts,
sing together the unending hymn of your glory,
as they acclaim:
