Latin.png Latin text

Montes et colles cantabunt coram Deo laudem,
et omnia ligna silvarum plaudent manibus et dicent:
Veni ad liberandum nos Domine Deus virtutum.
Ostende faciem tuam et salvi erimus.

The hills and the mountains shall sing praises to God,
And all the woods shall clap their hands and say:
Come to our deliverance, Lord God of valour.
Shew us your face, and we shall be safe.
