Intónuit de célo Dóminus,
et altíssimus dédit vócem súam.
Et apparuérunt fóntes aquárum.
Déxtera Dómini fécit virtútem,
Déxtera Dómini exaltávit me
Hec díes quam fécit Dóminus;
Exultémus et letémur in éa.

English.png English translation

The Lord thundered from Heaven,
and the Most High gave forth his voice,
and fountains of water appeared.
The right hand of the Lord showed strength,
The right hand of the Lord exalted me.
This day which the Lord has made:
Let us rejoice and be glad in it.
