Dies sanctificatus illuxit nobis:
Venite gentes, et adorate Dominum.
Quia hodie descendit lux magna in terris/super omnem terram.
Haec dies quam fecit Dominus:
Exultemus, et laetemur in ea.

A day made holy dawns upon us;
O come, all nations, and adore the Lord;

This is the day the Lord has made;
let us be glad and rejoice in it.

Ein geheiligter Tag ist uns aufgeleuchtet:
Kommt, ihr Völker, und betet den Herrn an.
Denn heute ist er herabgestiegen, ein großes Licht auf Erden.
Dies ist der Tag, den der Herr gemacht hat:
Laßt uns jubeln und uns an ihm freuen.
