Latin.png Latin text

Vidi turbam magnam, quam dinumerare nemo poterat,
ex omnibus gentibus, stantes ante thronum, et omnes
Angeli stabant in circuitu throni et ceciderunt in
conspectu throni in facies suas et adoraverunt Deum.

Redemisti nos Domine Deus in sanguine tuo
ex omni tribu, et lingua, et populo, et natione
et fecisti nos Deo nostro regnum.
Benedicite Dominum omnes electi eius.
Agite dies lætitiae et confitemini illi.

German.png German translation

Ich sah eine große Schar, die niemand zählen konnte,
aus allen Völkern, vor dem Throne stehen, und alle
Engel standen rings um den Thron und fielen nieder beim
Anblick des Throns auf ihr Angesicht und verehrten Gott.

Du hast uns erlöst, Herr Gott, durch dein Blut
aus allen Stämmen, Sprachen, Völkern und Nationen
und hast uns zum Reich unseres Gottes gemacht.
Lobet den Herrn, all ihr von ihm Auserwählten,
haltet Freudentage und bekennt euch zu ihm!

Translation by Gerhard Weydt

I saw a great throng which no man could number,
of all nations, standing before the throne, and all the
angels stood round about the throne and fell down
before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God.

Thou hast redeemed us, God our Lord, by thine blood
from all tribes, tongues, peoples and nations,
and hast made us our God’s kingdom.
Bless the Lord, all his elect,
keep days of joy and acknowledge him.
