Gaudens gaudebo in Domino
et exsultabit anima mea
in Deo meo:
quia induit me
vestimentis salutis,
et indumento
justitia circumdedit me,
quasi sponsam ornatam
monilibus suis.

versus (Ps. 29:2):
Exaltabo te, Domine
quoniam suscepisti me:
nec delectasti inimicos
meos super me.
Gloria Patri

English.png English translation

I will gladly rejoice in the Lord
and my soul shall exult
in my God,
for He hath clothed me
in the garments of salvation,
and wrapped about me
a cloak of righteousness,
like a bride is
bedecked with her jewels.
