Angelus Domini descendit de coelo, et accedens revolvit lapidem et super eum sedit.
Et dixit mulieribus: Noli temere scio enim quia cruxificixum quaeritis.
Non est hic jam surrexit, venite et videte locum ubi positus erat Dominus.
Alleluja.

The angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it.
And said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified.
He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.
Alleluja.
