Refrain: Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia.
1. Ye sons and daughters of the Lord,
the King of glory, King adored,
this day Himself from death restored.
2. All in the early morning gray
went holy women on their way,
to see the tomb where Jesus lay.
3. Of spices pure a precious store
in their pure hands these women bore,
to anoint the sacred Body o'er.
4. The straightaway one in white they see,
who saith, "seek the Lord: but He
is risen and gone to Galilee."
5. This told they Peter, told John;
who forthwith to the tomb are gone,
but Peter is by John outrun.
6. That self-same night, while out of fear
the doors where shut, their Lord most dear
to His Apostles did appear.
7. But Thomas, when of this he heard,
was doubtful of his brethren's word;
wherefore again there comes the Lord.
8. "Thomas, behold my side," saith He;
"My hands, My feet, My body see,
and doubt not, but believe in Me."
9. When Thomas saw that wounded side,
the truth no longer he denied;
"Thou art my Lord and God!" he cried.
10. Oh, blest are they who have not seen
their Lord and yet believe in Him!
eternal life awaiteth them.
11. Now let us praise the Lord most high,
and strive His name to magnify
on this great day, through earth and sky:
12. Whose mercy ever runneth o'er;
Whom men and Angel hosts adore;
to Him be glory evermore.
R: Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia.
1. O filii et filiae,
Rex caelestis, Rex gloriae
morte surrexit hodie.
2. Ex mane prima Sabbati
ad ostium monumenti
3. Et Maria Magdalene,
et Iacobi, et Salome
Venerunt corpus ungere
4. In albis sedens angelus
In Galilaea est Dominus.
5. Et Ioannes apostolus
cucurrit Petro citius,
monumento venit prius.
6. Discipulis astantibus,
in medio stetit Christus,
dicens: Pax vobis omnibus.
7. Ut intellexit Didymus
quia surrexerat Iesus,
remansit fere dubius.
8. Vide Thoma, vide latus,
vide pedes, vide manus,
noli esse incredulus.
9. Quando Thomas vidit Christum,
pedes, manus, latus suum,
dixit: Tu es Deus meus.
10. Beati qui non viderunt
et firmiter crediderunt;
vitam aeternam habebunt.
11. In hoc festo sanctissimo
sit laus et iubilatio:
12. Ex quibus nos humillimas
devotas atque debitas
Deo dicamus gratias.
