Latin.png Latin text

De coelo veniet, Dominator Dominus,
et in manu eius honor et imperium.
Ecce Rex veniet, Dominus terrae,
et ipse auferet jugum captivitatis nostrae.
Super te Jerusalem, orietur Dominus
et gloria eius in te videbitur.

English.png English translation

He will come from heaven, the Lord of Lords,
and in his hand will be honour and dominion.
Behold, the King will come, the Lord of the earth,
and he will take away the yoke of our captivity.
Upon thee, O Jerusalem, the Lord shall arise,
and his glory shall be seen in thee.

German.png German translation

Vom Himmel wird der Herr als Herrscher kommen,
und in seiner Hand werden Ehre und Herrschaft sein.
Siehe, der König wird kommen, der Herr der Erde,
und er selbst wird das Joch unserer Gefangenschaft aufheben.
Über dir, Jerusalem, wird der Herr aufgehen
und seine Herrlichkeit wird in dir erscheinen.
