Psallite Deo nostro, psallite sapienter.

Qui trinus et unus Deus extat in unitate,
cui manet imperium, honor atque potestas,
per infinita saecula.
Psallite Deo nostro, psallite sapienter.

Deus enim noster in coelo:
omnia quemcunque voluit fecit.
Psallite Deo nostro, psallite sapienter.

Quia ipse est Domine Deus noster:
nos autem populus eius, et oves pascuae eius.
Psallite Deo nostro, psallite sapienter.

Quoniam magnificata est super coelos,
misericordia eius et laudis eius plena est terra.
Psallite Deo nostro, psallite sapienter.

O sing praises unto our God with understanding.

Our God who exists as three and one united,
for his is the kingdom, the power and the glory,
for ever and ever.
O sing praises unto our God with understanding.

For our God is in the heavens:
he hath done whatsoever he hath pleased.
O sing praises unto our God with understanding.

For he is the Lord our God:
and we are his people and the sheep of his pasture.
O sing praises unto our God with understanding.

For he is glorified beyond the heavens,
the earth is ful of his mercy and praises.
O sing praises unto our God with understanding.
