Benedicite Dominum
omnes electi eius.
Agite dies laetitiae
et confitemini illi
hymnus omnibus sanctis eius,
filiis israel,
populo appropinquanti sibi.
Gloria haec est omibus sanctis eius.

German.png German translation

Lobet den Herrn,
all ihr von ihm Auserwählten,
haltet Freudentage
und bekennt euch zu ihm!
Ein Loblied für all seine Heiligen,
die Kinder Israels,
das Volk, das ihm nahe ist.
Das ist die Pracht all seiner Heiligen.

Translation by Gerhard Weydt

Bless the Lord,
all his elect,
keep days of joy
and acknowledge him.
A hymn to all his saints,
to the children of Israel,
to the people near to him.
This is the glory of all his saints.
