Miserere nostri Deus omnium,
respice nos et ostende nobis lucem miserationum tuarum,
et immitte timorem tuum super gentes
quae non exquisierunt te,
ut enarrent mirabilia tua et cognoscant,
quod non est Deus praeter te, Domine.

Alleva manum tuam super gentes alienas,
ut videant potentiam tuam.
Sicut enim in conspectu eorum sanctificatus es in nobis,
sic in conspectu nostro magnificaberis in eis,
ut cognoscant, sicut et nos cognovimus,
quod non est Deus praeter te, Domine.

Ecclesiasticus 36,1-5
