Original text and translations

Latin.png Latin text

Audite celi, que loquor,
audiat terra verba oris mei
fluat, fluat ut ros eloquium meum
concrescat ut pluvia doctrina mea.
Date magnificentiam Deo nostro
Dei perfecta sunt opera
et omnes vie ejus judicia.

Hear, O heavens, what I speak
Let the earth hear the words of my mouth
let my speech flow like dew;
may my doctrine drop as rain.
Give greatness to our God
God's works are perfect
and all his ways are judgments.
