Laudate, pueri, Dominum

Language: Latin

1 [Alleluja]
  Laudate, pueri, Dominum; 
  laudate nomen Domini.
2 Sit nomen Domini benedictum
  ex hoc nunc et usque in [sæculum]1.
3 A solis ortu usque ad occasum
  laudabile nomen Domini.
4 Excelsus super omnes gentes Dominus,
  [et]2 super caelos gloria eius.
5 Quis sicut Dominus Deus noster,
  qui in altis habitat,
6 Et humilia respicit 
  in caelo et in terra?
7 Suscitans a terra inopem, 
  et de stercore erigens pauperem :
8 Ut collocet eum cum principibus, 
  cum principibus populi sui.
9 Qui habitare facit sterilem in domo, 
  matrem filiorum lætantem.

Psalm 113

Language: English after the Latin

Praise ye the Lord.
Praise, O ye servants of the Lord,
praise the name of the Lord.
Blessed be the name of the Lord
from this time forth and for evermore.
From the rising of the sun
unto the going down of the same
the Lord's name is to be praised.
The Lord is high above all nations,
and his glory above the heavens.
Who is like unto the Lord our God,
who dwelleth on high,
Who humbleth himself to behold 
the things that are in heaven, and in the earth!
He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, 
and lifteth the needy out of the dunghill;
That he may set him with princes, 
even with the princes of his people.
He maketh the barren woman to keep house, 
and to be a joyful mother of children. 
Praise ye the Lord.
