Expurgáte vétus ferméntum,
ut sítis nóva conspérsio.
Etenim Páscha nóstrum
immolátus est Chrístus.
Itaque epulémur in Dómino.

Mórtuus est enim
própter delícta nóstra
et resurréxit
própter iustificatiónes nóstras.
Itaque epulémur in Dómino.

Cleanse out the old leaven,
that you may be fresh dough.
For our paschal lamb,
Christ, has been sacrificed.
Therefore let us celebrate in the Lord.

For he was put to death
for our transgressions
and rose again
for our justification.
Therefore let us celebrate in the Lord.
