Vocem jucunditatis annunciate,
et audiatur, alleluia:
nuntiate usque ad extremum terrae:
nunc autem liberavit Dominus populum suum.

Jubilate Deo omnis terra:
psalmum dicited nomini ejus:
date gloriam laudi ejus.

Spread the news with a voice of joy;
let it be heard, alleluia:
speak it out to the very ends of the earth;
now the Lord has liberated his people.

Shout joyfully to God, all the earth;
sing a psalm to his name;
praise him with magnificence.
