Gaudent in coelis animae Sanctorum,
qui Christi vestigia sunt secuti.
Et quia pro ejus amore sanguinem suum fuderunt,
ideo cum Christo exsultant sine fine.

English.png English translation

The souls of the saints, they who have followed
in the footsteps of Christ, rejoice in heaven.
And, since they shed their blood in love for Him,
So they rejoice without end, in Christ.
