Calicem salutaris accipiam,
Et nomen Domini invocabo.
Vota mea reddam tibi, Domine,
Coram omni populo tuo,
Et misericordias tuas in aeternum cantabo.

Dutch.png Dutch translation

De kelk van het heil zal ik aanvaarden

en de naam van de Heer zal ik aanroepen.

Mijn geloften zal ik jou, God, doen toekomen

ten overstaan van heel jouw volk.

En jouw barmhartigheden zal ik eeuwig blijven bezingen.

Translation by Anton Hendriks, Ben Terstegge, Hanneke Pot

I will accept the chalice of salvation,
And call upon the name of the Lord.
I will offer my vows to you, Lord,
Before all of your people,
And I will sing of your mercies for ever.
