Audite, insulæ,
& attendite, populi de longe,
Dominus ab utero vocavit me
de ventre matris meæ
recordatus est nominis mei
& nunc haec dedit Dominus
formans me ex utero servum sibi
dedit me in lucem gentium
ut sis salus mea
usque ad extremum terræ
reges videbunt & consurgent principes
et adorabunt Dominum Deum tuum,
et Sanctum Israhel qui elegit te.

English.png English translation

Give ear, ye islands,
and hearken, ye people from afar.
The Lord hath called me from the womb,
from the bowels of my mother
he hath been mindful of my name.
And now saith the Lord,
that formed me from the womb to be his servant,
[…]I have given thee to be the light of the Gentiles,
that thou mayst be my salvation
even to the farthest part of the earth.
Kings shall see, and princes shall rise up,
and adore [thy God and] Lord…
and the Holy One of Israel, who hath chosen thee.
(c.f. Isa. 49:1-7 Douay 1610)
