Ascendens Christus in altum, alleluia.
Captivam duxit captivitatem, alleluia.
Dedit dona hominibus, alleluia.

Christ rose up, alleluja.
And took captivity prisoner, alleluja.
He gave gifts to the men, alleluja.

God rose in jubilation,
and the Lord with the sound of the trumpet, alleluja.
He gave gifts to the men, alleluja.
