Hodie nobis de coelo pax vera descendit:
Hodie per totum mundum melliflui facti sunt coeli.
Hodie illuxit nobis dies redemptionis novae,
reparationis antiquae, felicitatis aeternae. Alleluia.

Today for us true peace from heaven came down:
Today throughout the whole world the heavens distilled honey.
Today there shone for us a day of new redemption,
of long-expected restoration, of eternal happiness. Alleluia.

Heute steigt vom Himmel hinab der wahre Frieden,
Heute benetzt der Himmel die ganze Welt mit Honig,
Heute kommt herab der neue Tag unserer Erlösung
und die langersehnte Gabe der ewigen Glückseligkeit.
