Lyrics:

Be joyful, Mary, heav'nly queen,
Gaude, Maria:
Your Son who died was living seen,
Alleluia,
Laetare, O Maria!

The Son you bore by heaven's grace,
Gaude, Maria:
Did all our guilt and sin efface,
Alleluia,
Laetare, O Maria!

The Lord is risen from the dead,
Gaude, Maria:
He rose with might as he had said,
Alleluia,
Laetare, O Maria!

Then pray to God, O Virgin fair,
Gaude, Maria:
That He our souls to heaven bear.
Alleluia!
Laetare, O Maria!

Be joyful, Mary, heav’nly Queen,
Be joyful, Mary!
Your grief is changed to joy serene,
Alleluia!
Rejoice, rejoice, O Mary!

The Son you bore by heaven's grace,
Be joyful, Mary!
Did by His death our guilt erase,
Alleluia!
Rejoice, rejoice, O Mary!

The Lord has risen from the dead,
Be joyful, Mary!
He rose in glory as He said,
Alleluia!
Rejoice, rejoice, O Mary!

Then pray to God, O Virgin fair,
Be joyful, Mary!
That He our souls to heaven bear,
Alleluia!
Rejoice, rejoice, O Mary!
