Original text and translations
Populus ejus, et oves pascuæ ejus,
introite portas ejus in confessione;
atria ejus in hymnis.
Confitemini illi, laudate nomen ejus,
quoniam suavis est Dominus,
in æternum misericordia ejus,
et usque in generationem et generationem veritas ejus.
Douay-Rheims (from Psalm 99/100):
Come in before his presence with exceeding great joy.
Know ye that the Lord he is God: he made us, and not we ourselves.
We are his people and the sheep of his pasture.
Go ye into his gates with praise, into his courts with hymns: and give glory to him. Praise ye his name:
For the Lord is sweet, his mercy endureth for ever, and his truth to generation and generation.
