Original text and translations

Latin.png Latin text

Omnes gentes, Canite, jubilate,
et dicite laudibus Dominum.

Domine quam suavis est Spiritus tuus
qui ut filijs tuis tuam dulcedine,
demonstrates panem corporis tui
suavissimum Reliquisti.
Omnes gentes…

O Santissime Deus te rogamus
ut in ultima mortis hora
nos non derelinquas, te rogamus,
sed inter oves tuas nos numerare digneris.
Omnes gentes…

O pijssime Domine oramus te
ne permittas nos damnari,
(oramus te) sed praecamur
ut paradisi gloria poscimus praemiari.

English.png English translation

All you nations, sing, shout,
and say praises to the Lord.

Lord, how sweet is your Spirit
which, like your sweet Son
in the Bread of your Body
manifests a most sweet odor.

Oh most holy God we beseech you
in the last hour of death
do not abandon us, we pray,
but vouchsafe to number us among your sheep.

Oh most holy Lord, we pray you
do not allow us to be damned;
rather, we pray that we may be
rewarded with the glory of Paradise.
