John Sheppard: Laudate pueri Dominum

Laudate pueri Dominum: 
Praise the Lord, ye servants:
laudate nomen Domini. 

O praise the name of the Lord.
Sit nomen Domini benedictum, 

Blessed be the name of the Lord,
ex hoc nunc, et usque in saeculum. 

from this time forth and for evermore.
A solis ortu usque ad occasum, 

From the rising of the sun unto the going down
laudabile nomen Domini. 

of the same the Lord’s name is to be praised.
Excelsus super omnes gentes Dominus 

The Lord is high above all nations
et super caelos gloria eius. 

and His glory above the heavens.
Quis sicut Dominus, Deus noster, 

Who is like unto the Lord our God, who dwelleth
qui in altis habitat, et humilia 

on high, who humbleth himself to behold
respicit in caelo et in terra? 

the things that are in heaven, and in the earth?
Suscitans a terra inopem, 

He raiseth the poor out of the dust,
et de stercore erigens pauperem: 

and lifteth the needy out of the mire;
Ut collocet eum cum principibus, 

that he may set him with princes,
cum principibus populi sui. 

even the princes of his people.
Qui habitare facit sterilem in domo, 

He maketh the barren woman to keep house,
matrem filiorum laetantem. 

and to be a joyful mother of children.
Gloria Patri, et Filio, 

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son,
et Spiritui Sancto. 

and to the Holy Spirit.
Sicut erat in principio, et nunc, et semper: 

As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be:
et in saecula saeculorum. Amen. 

and for an age of ages. Amen.
