Audivi vocem de cælo, tamquam vocem aquarum multarum,
et tanquam vocem tonitrui magni:
et vocem quam audivi sicut citharœdorum citharizantium in citharis suis.
Et cantabant quasi canticum novum ante sedem Dei,
dicentium: Gloria tibi Domine.

And I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of many waters,
and as the voice of a great thunder:
and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps.
And they sung as it were a new song before the throne of God,
saying: "Glory be to thee, O Lord".
