Latin.png Latin text

Psallite Domino qui habitat in Sion;
annuntiate inter gentes opera ejus,
exultate ei in exultatione.
Hymnum dicite in nomini ejus
quoniam ipse Dominus Deus noster;
ipse fecit nos et non ipsi nos.

Praise the Lord, who dwells in Sion;
proclaim His works among the people,
Praise Him in exultation.
Recite a hymn in His Name,
for He is our Lord God;
He made us and not we ourselves.
