1 For fifty years on earth
You have perfumed with your virtues
Our humble little monastery,
The palace of the King of the Elect.
 
Refrain
Let us celebrate, let us celebrate the happy entrance
Of our senior sister in Carmel.
All our hearts love her
As a truly sweet gift from Heaven.
 
2 You have received us all
At our entrance into this place.
Your kindness is well-known to us,
Along with your tender love.
 
3 Soon an even more beautiful feast
Will come to gladden our hearts.
We shall place new flowers
On your head as we sing.
