Laudate pueri, Dominum

1 Laudate, pueri, Dominum; laudate nomen Domini.
2 Sit nomen Domini benedictum ex hoc nunc et usque in sæculum.
3 A solis ortu usque ad occasum laudabile nomen Domini.
4 Excelsus super omnes gentes Dominus, et super cælos gloria ejus.
5 Quis sicut Dominus Deus noster, qui in altis habitat, et humilia respicit in cælo et in terra?
6 Suscitans a terra inopem, et de stercore erigens pauperem:
7 ut collocet eum cum principibus, cum principibus populi sui.
8 Qui habitare facit sterilem in domo, matrem filiorum lætantem.

1 Praise the Lord, ye servants : O praise the Name of the Lord.
2 Blessed be the Name of the Lord : from this time forth for evermore.
3 The Lord's Name is praised : from the rising up of the sun unto the going down of the same.
4 The Lord is high above all heathen : and his glory above the heavens.
5 Who is like unto the Lord our God, that hath his dwelling so high : and yet humbleth himself to behold the things that are in heaven and earth?
6 He taketh up the simple out of the dust : and lifteth the poor out of the mire;
7 That he may set him with the princes : even with the princes of his people.
8 He maketh the barren woman to keep house : and to be a joyful mother of children.
