Original text and translations

Latin.png Latin text

Apparuit benignitas et humanitas Salvatoris Dei nostri.
Non ex operibus justitiae quae fecimus sed secundum misericordiam suam salvos nos
fecit per lavacrum regenerationis et renovationis Spiritus Sancti
quem effundit in nos opulenter per Jesum Christum Salvatorem nostrum
ut justificati gratia ipsius heraedes simus secundum spem
vitae aeternae in Christo Jesu Domino nostro.

The generosity and humanity of God our Saviour has manifested itself.
It was on account not of our just works but of His mercy that He saved us,
cleansing us by the restorative powers of the Holy Spirit
which He lavished upon us through Jesus Christ our Saviour,
so that, justified by His grace, we may, as we hope, inherit
eternal life in Jesus Christ our Lord.

Translation by Mick Swithinbank
