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.

W. Byrd sets lines 1-2
