Gáudent in caélis ánimae Sanctórum,
Qui Chrísti vestígia sunt secúti;
Et, quía pro éius amóre
sánguinem súum fudérunt,
Ideo cum Chrísto régnant in aetérnum.

The souls of the Saints rejoice in heaven
who followed the footsteps of Christ;
and, because for his love
they shed their blood,
therefore they reign forever with Christ.
