Gradual responsory/Vespers hymn: Easter Sunday

Haec dies quam fecit Dominus: exultemus et laetemur in ea, alleluia.
Confitemini Domino, quoniam bonus: quoniam in saeculum misericordia ejus.
Pascha nostrum immolatus est Christus.
Itaque epulemur in azimis sinceritatis et veritatis. Alleluia.

This is the day which the Lord has made: let us be glad and rejoice therein. Alleluia.
Give praise to the Lord, for he is good: for his mercy endures forever.
Christ our Passover was sacrificed for us.
Therefore, let us feast on the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth. Alleluia.
