In excelso throno vidi sedere virum, quem adorat multitudo Angelorum, psallentes in unum:
Ecce cujus imperii nomen est in aeternum.
Jubilate Deo, omnis terra: servite Domino in laetitia.

Upon a high throne I saw a man sitting, whom a multitude of Angels adore singing together:
Behold him the name of whose empire is for ever.
O sing joyfully to the Lord, all the earth serve ye the Lord with gladness.
