Jube Domine benedicere.

Consurge, induere fortitudine tua, Syon,
induere vestimentis gloriae tuae, Hierusalem,
civitas Sancti, quia non adjiciet ultra
ut pertranseat per te incircumcisus et immundus.

Excutere de pulvere,
consurge, sede, Hierusalem!
solve vincula colli tui,
captiva filia Syon;
quia haec dicit Dominus:
Gratis venundati estis,
et sine pretio redimemini.

Quia ego ipse qui loquebar, ecce assum.
Gaudete et laudate simul,
deserta Hierusalem,
quia consolatus est Dominus populum suum,
in oculis omnium gentium.

Arise, arise, put on thy strength, O Sion,
put on the garments of thy glory, O Jerusalem,
the city of the Holy One: for henceforth the uncircumcised,
and unclean shall no more pass through thee. 

Shake thyself from the dust,
arise, sit up, O Jerusalem:
loose the bonds from off thy neck,
O captive daughter of Sion. 
For thus saith the Lord:
You were sold gratis,
and you shall be redeemed without money.

Rejoice, and give praise together,
O ye deserts of Jerusalem:
for the Lord hath comforted his people
in the sight of all the Gentiles.
