Lyrics: 1 Corinthians ch.5, v.7-8

Expurgate vetus fermentum, ut sitis nova conspersio, sicut estis azymi.
Etenim Pascha nostrum immolatus est Christus.
Itaque epulemur: non in fermento veteri, neque in fermento malitiae et nequitiae:
sed in azymis sinceritatis et veritatis.

Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened.
For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us.
Therefore let us keep the feast: not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness:
but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.
