Johann Hermann Schein: "Maria Magdalena" Cymbalum Sionium

Based on Luke 24:1,5,10


Maria Magdalena et altera Maria
Ibant diluculo ad monumentum Jesum,
Jesum, quem quaeritis, non est hic,
Surrexit, praecedet vos in Galilaeam,
Ibi eum videbitis. Alleluia.

Mary Magdalene and the other Mary
Went forth at dawn to the tomb of Jesus;
Jesus whom you seek, is not here;
He has risen, and has gone before you into Galilee;
There you will see Him.  Alleluia.
