Dignus est Agnus, qui occisus est, accipere virtutem, et divinitatem, et sapientiam, et fortitudinem, et honorem.
Ipsi gloria et imperium in saecula saeculorum.
Deus, judicium tuum Regi da: et justitiam tuam Filio Regis.

The Lamb that was slain is worthy to receive power and divinity and wisdom and strength and honour;
To Him be glory and empire for ever.

Give to the King, O God, Thy justice, and to the King's Son Thy judgement.
