Original text and translations
Salve festa dies toto venerabilis ævo
Qua Deus infernum vincit et astra tenet
Ecce renascentis testatur gratia mundi
Omnia cum Domino dona redisse suo
Namque triumphanti post tristia tartara Christo
Undique fronde nemus gramina flore favent
Legibus inferni oppressis super astra meantem
laudant rite deum lux polus arva fretum.
Qui crucifixus erat Deus, ecce per omnia regnat
Dantque Creatori cuncta creata precem
