Te Deum Laudamus

Since the Churches are quiet in many parts of the world, let us sing to give God the glory that He deserves.

We praise Thee, O God:
We acknowledge Thee to be the Lord.
All the earth doth worship Thee
And the Father everlasting.
To Thee all Angels:
To Thee the heavens and all the Powers therein.

To Thee the Cherubim and Seraphim:
Cry with unceasing voice:
Holy, Holy, Holy: Lord God of Hosts.
The heavens and the earth are full:
Of the majesty of Thy glory.
Thee the glorious choir:
Of the Apostles.
Thee the admirable company:
Of the Prophets.
Thee the white-robed army of Martyrs:
Thee the Holy Church throughout all the world:
Doth acknowledge.

The Father of infinite Majesty.
Thine adorable, true:
And only Son.

Also the Holy Ghost:
The Paraclete.
Thou art the King of Glory:
O Christ.
Thou art the everlasting Son:
Of the Father.
Thou having taken upon Thee to deliver man:
Didst not abhor the Virgin's womb.
Thou having overcome the sting of death:
Didst open to believers the kingdom of heaven.
Thou sittest at the right hand of God:
In the glory of the Father.

We believe that Thou shalt come:
To be our Judge.
We beseech Thee, therefore, help Thy servants:
Whom Thou has redeemed with Thy precious Blood.
Make them to be numbered with Thy Saints:
In glory everlasting.

Lord, save Thy people:
And bless Thine inheritance.
Govern them: and lift them up forever.
Day by day: we bless Thee.
And we praise Thy name forever:
And world without end.

Vouchsafe, O Lord, this day:
To keep us without sin.
Have mercy on us, O Lord:
Have mercy on us.
Let Thy mercy, O Lord, be upon us:
As we have hoped in Thee.
O Lord, in Thee have I hoped:
Let me never be confounded.
