Te Deum

Language: Latin

Te Deum laudamus, 
Te Dominum adoramus.  
Te aeternum Patrem, 
omnis terra benedicitur.  
Tibi omnes angeli, 
Tibi caeli et universae potestates, 
Tibi Cherubim et Seraphim 
incessabili voce proclamant: 
"Sanctus, Sanctus, Sanctus, 
Dominus Deus Sabaoth.  
Pleni sunt caeli et terra 
majestatis gloria tua.  
Hosanna in excelsis Deo."  

Te gloriosus 
apostolorum chorus, 
Te prophetarum 
laudabilis numerus, 
Te martyrum candidatus 
laudat exercitus.  
Te omnes electi 
voce confitentur unanimes proclamant: 
Tibi gloria, Tibi laus, Tibi honor, Deum.  
Tibi gratiarum actio, 
Patrem immensae majestatis, 
unigenitum et verum Filium, 
quoque Sanctum Spiritum, 
O beata et una Trinitas, 
summa Deitas 
et sancta Unitas, 
in saecula sempiterna.

To God

Language: English after the Latin

We praise You as God,
we worship You as Lord. 
The whole earth is blessed by You,
everlasting Father. 
To You all the angels,
to You the heavens and all the heavenly Powers,
to You the Cherubim and the Seraphim
unceasingly cry aloud:
"Holy, Holy, Holy,
Lord God of hosts. 
Heaven and earth are filled
with the majesty of Your glory. 
Hosanna in the highest God." 

The glorious choir
of apostles praises You,
the praiseworthy band
of prophets praises You,
the white-clad army
of martyrs praises You. 
All the chosen ones acknowledge You
with one voice, proclaiming:
Praise, gloria and honour to You, O God. 
To You we give thanks,
Father of infinite majesty,
Your true and only Son,
and also the Holy Spirit,
O blessed and only Trinity,
highest Godhead
and holy Unity,
forever and ever.
