Cantabant sancti canticum novum
ante sedem dei et agni
et resonabat terra in voces eorum.

Hiempti sunt ex hominibus
primítiae Deo, et Agno,
et in ore eorum non est inventum mendacium.
Et resonabat terra in voces eorum.

Variant 1
Et ceciderunt in conspectu throni
in facies suas et benedixerunt viventem in saecula
et resonabat terra in voces eorum.
 

English.png English translation

The Saints sang a new song
before the throne of God and of the Lamb,
and their sound is gone out in all lands.

These children have been ransomed from among men
as the first offerings to God and to the Lamb,
and in their mouths no falsehood has been found.
And their sound is gone out in all lands.

Variant 1
And fell on their faces before the throne
and they blessed him that liveth for ever.
And their sound is gone out in all lands.
