O Filii Et Filiae

Opening Antiphon: Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

O filii et filiae,
Rex caelestis, Rex gloriae
morte surrexit hodie.
Alleluia!

Ex mane prima Sabbati
ad ostium monumenti
accesserunt discipuli.
Alleluia!

Et Maria Magdalene,
et Iacobi, et Salome
Venerunt corpus ungere
Alleluia!

In albis sedens angelus
praedixit mulieribus:
In Galilaea est Dominus.
Alleluia!

Et Ioannes apostolus
cucurrit Petro citius,
monumento venit prius.
Alleluia!

Discipulis astantibus,
in medio stetit Christus,
dicens: Pax vobis omnibus.
Alleluia!

Ut intellexit Didymus
quia surrexerat Iesus,
remansit fere dubius.
Alleluia!

Vide Thoma, vide latus,
vide pedes, vide manus,
noli esse incredulus.
Alleluia!

Quando Thomas vidit Christum,
pedes, manus, latus suum,
dixit: Tu es Deus meus.
Alleluia!

Beati qui non viderunt
et firmiter crediderunt;
vitam aeternam habebunt.
Alleluia!

In hoc festo sanctissimo
sit laus et iubilatio:
benedicamus Domino.
Alleluia!

Ex quibus nos humillimas
devotas atque debitas
Deo dicamus gratias.
Alleluia!

Closing Antiphon: Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
