Venite, exsultemus Domino
Language: Latin 
1  [Laus cantici ipsi David.]
   Venite, exsultemus Domino;
   jubilemus Deo salutari nostro;
2  præoccupemus faciem ejus in confessione,
   et in psalmis jubilemus ei:
3  quoniam Deus magnus Dominus,
   et rex magnus super omnes deos.
4  Quia in manu ejus sunt omnes fines terræ,
   et altitudines montium ipsius sunt;
5  quoniam ipsius est mare, et ipse fecit illud,
   et siccam manus ejus formaverunt.
6  Venite, adoremus, et procidamus,
   et ploremus ante Dominum qui fecit nos:
7  quia ipse est Dominus Deus noster,
   et nos populus pascuæ ejus, et oves manus ejus.
8  Hodie si vocem ejus audieritis,
   nolite obdurare corda vestra
9  sicut in irritatione,
   secundum diem tentationis in deserto,
   ubi tentaverunt me patres vestri:
   probaverunt me, et viderunt opera mea.
10 Quadraginta annis offensus fui generationi illi,
   et dixi: Semper hi errant corde.
11 Et isti non cognoverunt vias meas:
   ut juravi in ira mea:
   Si introibunt in requiem meam.

O come, let us sing unto the Lord
Language: English  after the Latin 
O come, let us sing unto the Lord:
let us heartily rejoice in the strength of our salvation.
Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving:
and show ourselves glad in him with psalms.
For the Lord is a great God:
and a great King above all gods.
In his hand are all the corners of the earth:
and the strength of the hills is his also.
The sea is his, and he made it:
and his hands prepared the dry land.
O come, let us worship, and fall down:
and kneel before the Lord our Maker.
For he is the Lord our God: and we are the people
of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand.
Today if ye will hear his voice, 
harden not your hearts:
as in the provocation,
and as in the day of temptation in the wilderness;
When your fathers tempted me:
proved me, and saw my works.
Forty years long was I grieved with this generation,
and said: It is a people that do err in their hearts,
for they have not known my ways.
Unto whom I sware in my wrath:
that they should not enter into my rest.
