Suscepimus, Deus, misericordiam tuam in medio templi tui:
secundum nomen tuum, Deus:
ita et laus tua in fines terrae:
justitia plena est dextera tua.
Magnus Dominus, et laudabilis nimis:
in civitate Dei nostri, in monte sancto ejus.

We have received Thy mercy, O God, in the midst of Thy temple,
according to Thy Name, O God,
so also is Thy praise unto the ends of the earth;
Thy right hand is full of justice.
Great is the Lord, and exceedingly to be praised,
in the city of God, in His holy mountain.
