Original text and translations
This is the day when Christ arose,
And triumphed o'er his hellish foes;
When he ascended to the sky,
Crowned with the palm of victory.
Rejoice, my soul, and sing his praise,
Proclaim how wondrous are his ways;
Swell, swell the anthem to his name,
Exalt his works of grace and fame.
