Rejoice, O Cross of the Lord,

Through you mankind has been delivered from the curse.

Shattering the enemy by your exaltation, O all-venerable Cross,

You are a sign of true joy.

You are our help, you are the strength of kings,

You are the power of all the righteous and just,

You are the majesty of priests.

All who sign themselves with you are freed from peril.

You are the rod of strength under which we, like sheep, are tended.

You are a weapon of peace round which the angels  stand in fear.

You are the divine glory of Christ Who grants to the world great mercy.
