Aria 1
Exsultate, jubilate,
O vos animae beatae
exsultate, jubilate,
dulcia cantica canendo;
cantui vestro
psallant aethera cum me.

Recitativo
Fulget amica dies,
jam fugere et nubila et procellae;
exortus est justis inexspectata quies.

Undique obscura regnabat nox,
surgite tandem laeti qui timuistis adhuc,
et jucundi aurorae fortunatae.
frondes dextera plena et lilia date.

Aria 2
Tu virginum corona,
tu nobis pacem dona,
tu consolare affectus,
unde suspirat cor.
Alleluja.

Aria 1
Rejoice, be glad,
O you blessed souls,
Rejoice, be glad,
Singing sweet songs;
In response to your singing
Let the heavens sing forth with me.

Recitativo
The friendly day shines forth,
both clouds and storms have fled now;
for the righteous there has arisen an unexpected calm.

Dark night reigned everywhere ;
you who feared till now,
and joyful for this lucky dawn
give garlands and lilies with full right hand.

Aria 2
You, o crown of virgins,
grant us peace,
console our feelings,
from which our hearts sigh.
Alleluja
