Prima pars
Angelus Domini descendit de caelo
et accedens revolvit lapidem
et super eum sedit
et dixit mulieribus :
nolite timere, alleluia
scio enim quia crucifixum quaeritis
venite et videte locum
 ubi positus erat Dominus alleluia.

Secunda pars
Et introeuntes in monumentum
viderunt juvenem sedentem a dextris
coopertum stola candida
et obstupuerunt qui dixit illis :
nolite timere alleluia
quia surrexit Dominus vere alleluia.
