Original text and translations

Latin.png Latin text

Canite tuba in Sion, vocate gentes
annuntiate populis et dicite:
Ecce Dominus Deus salvator noster veniet.
Qui venturus est veniet et non tardabit.
Iam non erit timor in finibus nostris. Quia ipse est salvator noster.

English.png English translation

Blow the trumpet in Sion, address the nations,
declare to the people and say:
God our Saviour draws nigh.
He who is to come draws nigh and does not tarry.
And there will be no fear at our endings, for he is our saviour.
