Latin.png Latin text

Vidi Dominum sedentem super solium, excelsum et elevatum,
et plena est omnis terra maiestate eius.
In excelso gloriae tuae exaudi Domine preces
servorum tuorum et in ore omnium dulcis resonabat sonus.
Omnes qui timetis Deum laudem dicite Deo nostro,
quoniam regnavit Deus noster.
Gaudeamus et exultemus et demus gloriam ei.

I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up,
and the whole earth is full of his glory.
O Lord, from the highest in thy glory, hear the prayers
of thy servants, and a sweet noise shall resound in the mouths of all people.
Let all who fear the Lord give praise to our God,
For our God reigneth.
Let us rejoice and be glad, and let us give glory unto Him.
