Viderunt omnes fines terrae salutare Dei nostri:
jubilate Deo omnes terra.

Notum fecit Dominus salutare suum:
ante conspectum gentium revelavit iustitiam suam.
(Psalm 98:2-4)

All the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God:
sing joyfully to God, all the earth.

The Lord has made known his salvation:
He has revealed His righteousness in the sight of the nations.

Los confines de la tierra han contemplado la victoria de nuestro Dios:
Aclama a Dios toda la tierra.

El Señor ha dado a conocer tu salvación:
a la vista de las naciones ha revelado su justicia.
