Latin.png Latin text

Reges Tharsis et insulae munera offerent,
reges Arabum et Saba dona
domino Deo adducent.
Et adorabunt eum omnes reges,
omnes gentes servient ei.
Gloria Patri et Filio et Spiritui Sancto.

English.png English translation

The kings of Tharsis and the isle offer their gifts,
the kings of Arabia and Sheba
bring gifts to the Lord God.
And all the kings worship him,
all peoples bow before him.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost.

(translation by Mick Swithinbank)
