Original text and translations

Latin.png Latin text

Quam benignus es, o Domine Deus, omnibus in te sperantibus et animabus te timentibus.
Quantum bonum est in silentio praestolari salutare tuum.

O beatum hominem cui tu protector es, Domine.
Spes ejus in te, Domino Deo ipsius, qui caelum et terram fecisti.

Hungarian.png Hungarian translation

Milyen jó vagy, Uram Istenem a tebenned bízókhoz és a téged félő lelkekhez.
Milyen jó csendben várni szabadításodra.

Ó, boldog az az ember, akinek te vagy a védelmezője, Uram.
Reménye tebenned van, az Úrban, az ő Istenében, aki az eget és a földet alkotta.

English.png English translation

How good you are, o Lord God, to all who hope in you and to all souls who fear you.
How good it is to await your salvation in silence.

O fortunate man to whom you are protector, Lord.
His hope is in you, his Lord God, who made heaven and earth.
