Original text and translations

Latin.png Latin text

Terribilis est locus iste:
hic domus Dei est et porta caeli:
et vocabitur aula Dei.

Ps. Quam dilecta tabernacula tua, Domine virtutum,
concupiscit et deficit anima mea in atria Domini.

English.png English translation

Terrible is this place:
it is the house of God, and the gate of heaven;
and it shall be called the court of God.

Ps. How lovely are Thy tabernacles, O Lord of Hosts,
my soul longeth and fainteth for the courts of the Lord.
