Cantáte Dómino cánticum nóvum,
Quía mirabília fécit.
Salvávit síbi déxtera éjus,
Et bráchium sánctum éjus.
Nótum fécit Dóminus salutáre súum;
In conspéctu géntium
revelávit justítiam súam.

Jubiláte Déo, ómnis térra;
cantáte et exsultáte, et psállite.
Psállite Dómino in cíthara;
In cíthara et vóce psálmi;
In túbis ductílibus,
in vóce túbae córneae.

Sing to the Lord a new song,
For he has done wondrous things.
His right hand served him,
As did his holy arm.
The Lord has made known his salvation;
In the sight of the nations
he has revealed his justice.

Rejoice in the Lord, every land;
Sing and jump for joy, and sing praises.
Sing praises to the Lord with the lyre;
With the lyre and the voice of a Psalm;
with trumpets in concert,
with the sound of the horn.
