Good Friday Our Lord Died for Our Sins
Abroad the regal banners fly
Now shines the cross of mystery
Upon it life did death endure
And yet by death did life procure

Who wonded by a wicked spear
Did purposely to wash us clear
From stain of sin pour out a flood
Of precious water mixed with blood

Hail Cross of hopes the most sublime
Triumph and glory of all time
Grant to the just increase of grace
And every sinnr's crimes efface

Blest Trinity salvation's spring
May every soul your praises sing
Celestial crowns on those bestow
Wo conguer by the Cross below
Abroad The Regal Banners Fly
Vexilla Regis proeunt 
Fulget crucis mysterium
Quo carne carnis Conditor Suspensus est patibulo

Quo vulneratus insuper 
Mucrone diro lanceae
Ut nos lavaret crimine,
Manavit unda et sanguine. 

Impleta sunt quae concinit
David fideli carmine
Dicens In nationibus
Regavit a ligno Deus

Arbor decora et fulgida
Ornata Regis purpura
Electa digno stipite
Tam sancta membra tangere
