Cantate et psallite Domino.
Narrate omnia mirabilia eius, qui fecit magnalia in Aegypto,
mirabilia in terra Cham, terribilia in Mare Rubro:
qui redemit de interitu vitam nostram,
et coronat nos in misericordia et miserationibus.
Cantate ergo Domino canticum novum quia mirabilia fecit.

Sing unto the Lord and dance.
Tell of all his wondrous works, who had done so great things in Egypt,
wondrous works in the land of Ham, and fearful things by the Red sea:
who saveth our life from destruction:
and crowneth us with mercy and loving-kindness;
Therefore sing unto the Lord a new song, for he hath done marvellous things.
