Cantabant canticum Moysi servi Dei et canticum agni dicentes:
Magna et mirabilia sunt opera tua, Domine, Deus omnipotens.
Justae et verae sunt viae tuae, Domine, Rex saeculorum.

Quis non timebit te, Domine, et magnificabit nomen tuum?
Quia solus pius es, quoniam omnes gentes venient et adorabunt in conspectu tuo,
quoniam judicia tua manifesta sunt.
(Apocalypsis Johannis 15;3-4)

English.png English translation

And singing the canticle of Moses, the servant of God, and the canticle of the Lamb, saying:
Great and wonderful are thy works, O Lord God Almighty.
Just and true are thy ways, O King of ages.

Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and magnify thy name?
For thou only art holy. For all nations shall come and shall adore in thy sight,
because thy judgments are manifest.

Énekelték Mózesnek, Isten szolgájának énekét és a Bárány énekét:
Nagyok és csodálatosak a te műveid, Uram, mindenható Isten!
Igazságosak és igazak a te útjaid, nemzetek Királya!

Ki ne félne téged, Uram, és ki ne magasztalná nevedet?
Mert egyedül te vagy szent, hisz minden nemzet eljön és leborul színed előtt,
mert ítéleteid nyilvánvalóvá lettek!
(Jelenések könyve 15;3-4)
