Original text and translations

Latin.png Latin text

Exultemus Domino Regi summo,
qui suum sanctificavit tabernaculum.
O quam meruendus est locus iste;
vere non est hic aliud,
nisi domus Dei & porta cœli,
Hæc est domus Domini, firmiter ædificata,
bene fundata est supra firmam petram:
Exultemus Domino Regi summo.

English.png English translation

Let us worship the Lord above all kings,
Who sanctified this, his tabernacle.
How awe-inspiring is this place;
Truly it is nothing other
than the house of God, and the gateway to heaven.
This is the Lord's house, solidly built,
well grounded on solid rock:
Let us worship the Lord above all kings.

(trans. Timmi O'Danaos & Donna Ferrentes)
