Original text and translations

Latin.png Latin text

Benedictus sit Deus Pater, unigenitusque Dei Filius,
Sanctus quoque Spiritus; quia fecit nobiscum misericordiam suam.

Introibo domum tuam, Domine, in holocaustis
reddam tibi vota mea, quae distinxerunt labia mea.

Jubilate Deo omnis terra.
Psalmum dicite nomini eius, date gloriam laudi eius.

English.png English translation

Blessed be the God and Father and the only-begotten Son of God
and the Holy Spirit, because He has shown us His mercy.

I will go into thy house with burnt offerings:
I will pay thee my vows which my lips have uttered.

Make a joyful noise unto God, all ye lands;
sing forth the honour of his name: make his praise glorious.
