Original text and translations

Latin.png Latin text

Benedictus Dominus qui creavit coelum et terram,
quia hodie nomen tuum ita magnificavit.

Nos alium Deum nescimus,
praeter Dominum in quo speramus,
qui non despiciat nos nec amovet salutem suam a genere nostro.

English.png English translation

Blessed be the Lord who made heaven and earth
Because he hath so magnified thy name this day.

We know no other god,
but the Lord in whom we trust,
neither putteth He away His salvation to those who do not despise our race.
