Ave redemptor, Domine Iesu:
Cuius ob opus
Superatur mors, enim salvatio
nunc inundavit super universam terram.

Sancte redemptor, reputata
fides est nobis peccatoribus,
nunc et in morte, ad iustitiam.
Amen, Amen, Amen, Amen.

Hail the Redeemer, gracious Lord Jesus,
Jesus, by Whose cleansing blood
Death is undone and Your salvation come,
Surging across creation like a mighty flood.

Holy Redeemer, though, in our weakness,
We fall short and stumble into sin,
Through You our faith is reckoned as righteousness,
Amen, Amen, Amen, Amen.
