TE DEUM.

We praise thee, O God: we acknowledge thee to be the Lord.

All the earth doth worship thee, the Father everlasting

To thee all Angels cry aloud; the Heavens, and all the Powers therein.

To thee Cherubin and Seraphin continually do cry,

Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God of Sabaoth;
Heaven and earth are full of the Majesty of thy Glory.

THE SAME TRANSLATED.

Deum Deum te laudamus
Dominumque appellamus ;
Omnes te terrarum gentes
Clamant, Patrem confitentes

Sempiterni Numinis.

Te Potentiæ coelorum,
Mille coetus Angelorum,

Unâ voluntate moti

Dominum te Sabaoti

Sanctum Sanctum clamitant.

Omnem tu adimples mundum ;
Coelum tellus et profundum
Tuâ majestate plena;
Omnium te cantilena

Celebrat viventium ;

The glorious company of the Apostles praise thee.

The goodly fellowship of the Prophets praise thee.

The noble army of Martyrs praise thee.

The holy Church, throughout all the world, doth acknowledge thee:

The Father, of an infinite Majesty;

Thine honourable, true and only Son;

Also the Holy Ghost, the Comforter.

Thou art the King of Glory, O Christ.

Thou art the everlasting Son of the Father.

When thou tookest upon thee to deliver man: thou didst not abhor the Virgin's womb.

When thou hadst overcome the sharpness of death, thou didst open the Kingdom of Heaven to all believers.

Thou sittest at the right hand of God, in the Glory of the Father.

Agmen te Apostolorum,
Cohors Martyrum victorum,
Nobilisque chorus Vatum,
Et
per
orbem terræ latum

Pia vox Ecclesiæ ;

Patrem confitentes rite,
Majestatis infinitæ,
Verum illum unicumque
Tui Natum, Spiritumque

Paracletum nominant.

Christe, rex es gloriarum,
Patris lumen semper carum ;
Hominem cum statuisti
Conservare, non sprevisti

Sinum puræ Virginis.

Dura mortis cum vicisti,
Coelum tu aperuisti
Omnium piorum spei;
Dextrâ sedes ipse Dei

In paternâ gloriâ.

We believe that thou shalt come to be our Judge.

We therefore pray thee, help thy servants, whom thou hast redeemed with thy precious blood.

Make them to be numbered with thy Saints, in glory everlasting

O Lord, save thy people, and bless thine heritage.

Govern them, and lift them up for ever.

.

Day by day we magnify thee;

And we worship thy name ever, world without end.

Vouchsafe, O Lord, to keep us this day without sin.

O Lord, have mercy upon us; have mercy upon us;

O Lord, let thy mercy lighten upon us, as our trust is in thee.

O Lord, in thee have I trusted : let me never be confounded.
