Text & English Translation

Il Testo
Maria Magdalene stabat ad monumentum foris, plorans; dum ergo fleret, inclinavit se in monumentum, et vidit duos angelos in albis sedentes, et dixit eis:

Nun quem diligit anima mea vidistis?

Mulier, quid ploras? Quem quæritis?

Tulerunt Doiminum meum et nescio ubi poserunt eum. Quæsivi per noctem et non inveni.

Angelo Primo
Qualis est dilectus tuus ex dilecto, O pulcherrima mulierum?

Dilectus meus candidus et rubicundus, elctus ex millibus; totus amabilis, totus desiderabilis.

Angelo Secondo
Dic nobis, Maria, quis est dilectus tuus?

Dilectus meus, amor meus speciosus forma præ filiis hominum. Crucifixus Iesus est. O mea lux, ubi es? O amor meus, ubi es? O vita mea, ubi es? Veni, dilecte mi, veni, amore tuo langueo, veni, amore tuo morior.

Quid quæritis vivendum cum mortuis? Surrexit, non est hic; praecedet vos in Galileam; alleluia, Maria. Noli amplius plorare, gaude, lætare.

Dicamus ergo, gaudentes, lætantes, psallentes, amantes, dicamus: alleluia. O dies serena, O lux fortunate, O dies amena, O dies beata, cantemus, psallamus, amenus, canamus, alleluia.

Mary Magdalen stood at the tomb, mourning; as she wept, she turned to the tomb, and saw two angels in white sitting there, and said to them:

Have you seen Him whom my soul seeks?

Woman, why do you weep? Whom do you seek?

They have taken away my Lord, and I do not know where they have put Him. I searched for Him in the night and did not find Him.

First Angel
Who is your beloved among beloveds, O most beautiful of women?
My beloved is white and ruddy, chosen among thousands; completely loveable, completely desirable.

Second Angel
Tell us, Mary, who is your beloved?

My beloved, my love is beautiful among the sons of men; He is the crucified Jesus. O my light, where are you? O my love, where are you? O my life, where are you? Come, my beloved, come, for I languish for your love, come, for I am dying for your love.

Why do you seek the living among the dead? He has risen, he is not here, He will go before you to Galilee, alleluia, Mary. Weep no more, but rejoice and be glad.

Let us therefore say, jubilant, joyful, singing, loving, let us say: alleluia. O bright day, O fortunate dawn, O sweet day, O blessed day, let us sing songs and psalms, let us love, let us sing: alleluia.
