Original text and translations

Latin.png Latin text

Alle[luia,] Dei filius,
ab hoste superbissimo,
resurgens a morte,
delens Evæ culpam.

Latronem sero flebilem
coniunctum beatissima
perduxit ad regna
quo iturus erat.

Petrum cum ceteris visitat
omnesque flebiles consolat,
semper voce pia.
Alleluia.
 

English.png English translation

Halle[lujah,] the Son of God
is resurrected from death
—proudest of enemies—
[thus] destroying the sin of Eve.

At dusk, almost too late,
 He joins the mourning thief
and leads him to the most blessed kingdom,
where He is to precede him.

Peter visits with others
and consoles all mourners
with ever-pious words.
Hallelujah.

Translation by Campelli
