Original text and translations

Latin.png Latin text

Tibi laus, tibi gloria,
tibi gratiarum actio
in saecula sempiterna,
O beata Trinitas.
 (Responsorium for Trinity Sunday)

Da gaudiorum praemia,
da gratiarum munera,
dissolve litis vincula,
astringe pacis foedera.
 (Sequence hymn for Trinity)

English.png English translation

To thee be honor, glory,
and worship
O blessed Trinity.

Give the prize of joy,
give the rewards of grace,
break the chains of conflict,
bind fast the cords of peace.
