Original text and translations

Latin.png Latin text

Candidi facti sunt nazarei ejus, alleluya. Splendorem Dei dederunt, alleluya. Et sicut lac coagulati sunt, alleluya.
In omnem terram exivit sonus eorum: et in fines orbis terræ verba eorum.
Gloria Patri et Filio et Spiritui Sancto.

English.png English translation

Radiant white became his Nazarites, alleluia; they gave splendour to God, alleluia, and are curdled like milk, alleluia.
Their sound is gone out through all the earth; and their words to the ends of the earth.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit.
