Prima pars:
Congratulamini mihi, omnes qui diligitis Dominum,
quia quem quaerebam apparuit mihi, et dum flerem
ad monumentum vidi Dominum meum, alleluia.

Secunda pars:
Tulerunt Dominum meum, et nescio ubi posuerunt
eum; si tu sustulisti eum, dicito mihi, et dum flerem
ad monumentum vidi Dominum meum, alleluia.

First part:
Rejoice with me, all who love the Lord, because he
whom I sought appeared to me; and while I wept
at the tomb, I saw my Lord, alleluia.

Second part:
They have taken away my Lord, and I know not where they have laid
him. If you have removed him, tell me, and while I wept
at the tomb, I saw my Lord, alleluia.
