Justi in perpetuum vivent,
et apud Dominum est merces eorum,
et cogitatio eorum apud altissimum.

Ideo accipient regnum decoris
et diadema speciei
de manu Domini.

Gloria laus et honor decus potestas
et jubilatio Patri ac Nato
et Spiritui Sancto.

The just will live forever,
and with the Lord is their reward,
and their thought is with the highest.

Therefore they accept the kingship of honor
and the diadem of distinction
from the hand of the Lord.

Glory, praise and honor, dignity, power
and rejoicing for the Father and the Son
and the Holy Spirit.
