Triumphum Martyris jam nunc celebrate. Now celebrate the triumph of a martyr.

Angelorum et Virginum agmina. Troops of the Angels and Virgins,

Et cum voce laetitiae dicite. With the voice of gladness say:

In corpus saeviens virtute gratiae. In her body to fury burst the strength of grace,

Tradit furentibus. (Her body) that she delivers to the furious.

Membra mucronibus. Her members (which she delivers)

Et nos qui gemimus favens nos respice. And we who moan, look at us favorably.

Saepe quem laesimus sta coram judice. Stand before the Judge whom we have often offended:

Liberis det mentibus ad caelum tendere. May He give our souls, when detached from their bodies,

to go to Heaven.

Purgatosque sordibus fac tecum vivere. And purified from their defilements,

make them live in your company.

[O felix Caecilia! O felix Caecilia!] [O blessed Cecilia! O blessed Cecilia!]
