Original text and translations

English.png English text

Blow out the trumpet cheerfully in Sion,
and sound an alarum in my holy mountain.
Let all the inhabitants of the earth tremble,
for the day of the Lord cometh and is very nigh at hand.

Latin.png Latin translation

Canite tuba in Sion,
ululate in monte sancto meo,
conturbentur omnes habitatores terrae:
quia venit dies Domini, quia prope est.
