Let joy and praise to Heaven rise,
No more the Virgin weeps nor sighs,
Hallelujah, Hallelujah!
The dark and dismal night is gone,
Now gladdens all the blessed sun,
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah!

Out of His wounds, to bless us, flow
Five joyful streams, five seas of joy,
Hallelujah, Hallelujah!
Pour over thee the flood of joy,
Into thy heart the streams of joy.
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah!

Now swims thy heart in floods of peace,
And more and more the joys increase.
Hallelujah, Hallelujah!
O Virgin! pray, forget us not,
And help us to our joyful lot,
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah!
