Genitori genitoque
 Laus et iubilatio,
Salus, honor, virtus quoque
 Sit et benedictio:
Praecedenti ab utroque
 Compar sit laudatio.

For the begetter and for the begotten,
 Praise and voices raised in joy;
Salvation, honor, and power
 And blessing be as well:
For the one who emerges from both,
 Let there be equal praise.
