Cantáte Dómino cánticum nóvum:
cantáte Dómino, ómnis térra.
Cantáte Dómino, et benedícite nómini éjus.
Annuntiáte ínter géntes glóriam éjus,
in ómnibus pópulis mirabília éjus.
Quóniam mágnus Dóminus,
et laudábilis nímis.

Sing to the Lord a new song:
Sing to the lord, every land.
Sing to the Lord, and bless his name.
Proclaim among the nations his glory,
among all peoples his wonders.
For great is the Lord,
and greatly to be praised.
