Victimae paschali laudes
Immolent christiani.

Agnus redemit oves.
Christus innocens patri
Reconciliavit peccatores.

Veni sancte spiritus
Et emitte caelitus
Lucis tuae radium.

Veni pater pauperum,
Veni dator munerum,
Veni lumen cordium.

English translation: 

May the christians bring forth praises as sacrifice for the paschal victim.

The lamb redeemed the sheeps. The innocent Christ reconciled the sinners with the father.

Come holy ghost and emanate from heaven the ray of your light.

Come father of the poor, come giver of favors, come light of the hearts.
