Text and translations
Nos autem gloriari oportet
in cruce Domini nostri Jesu Christi:
In quo est salus, vita et resurrectio nostra:
Per quem salvati et liberati sumus.
Ps. Deus miseratur nostri, et benedicat nobis:
illuminet vultum suum super nos,
et misereatur nostri.
(cf. Gal. 6:14)
| English translation|
But it befits us to glory
in the Cross of our Lord Jesus Christ,
in whom is our salvation, life, and resurrection,
through whom we are saved and set free.
Ps. May God have mercy on us, and bless us;
may He cause the light of His countenance to shine upon us,
and may He have mercy on us.
Translation by St Ann choir
