Laeta redit Paschae lux
Laeta sonate Jehovae Sionides
Christus morte resurgit ovans
Gloria sit Christo nostro victoria
Ante pedes Christi morsque Charonque iacent
Sit plausus Christo gratia semper
Laeta pio populo Pascha perennis eat

The joyful light of Easter returns.
Trumpet the joys of Jehovah, people of Sion.
Christ rejoicing rises from the dead.
Glory be to our Christ in victory.
Death and Charon lie before the feet of Christ.
Let Christ ever be praised.
Let Easter joy ever flourish amongst the righteous
