Laudate Dominum in tympanis,
Cantate Domino in cymbalis,
Modulamini illum psalmum novum.
Exsultate, et invocate nomen eius:
quoniam magnus est Dominus et praeclarus in virtute sua.
Dominus conterens bella, Dominus nomen est illi.
Hymnum cantemus Domino Deo nostro.

Praise the Lord with drums,
Sing to the Lord with cymbals.
Let us sing a new psalm to Him.
Rejoice and call upon His name,
for great is the Lord and mightiest of all.
The Lord puts an end to wars; His name is 'the Lord'.
Let us sing a hymn to our God.
