Benedícam Dóminum in ómni témpore;
Sémper laus éjus in óre méo.
Magnificáte Dóminum mécum,
Et exaltémus nómen éjus in idípsum.
Gustáte, et vidéte
quóniam suávis est Dóminus;
Beátus vir qui spérat in éo.

I will bless the Lord at all times;
His praise is always in my mouth.
Magnify the Lord with me,
And let us exalt his name together.
Taste, and see
how sweet the Lord is;
Blessed is the man who trusts in him.
