Laudate pueri Dominum laudate nomen...

Language: Latin

1 [Alleluja]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]2 super caelos gloria eius.
5 Quis sicut Dominus Deus noster, qui in altis habitat,
6 Et humilia respicit in caelo et in terra?
7 Suscitans a terra inopem, et de stercore erigens pauperem :
8 Ut collocet eum cum principibus, cum principibus populi sui.
9 Qui habitare facit sterilem in domo, matrem filiorum lætantem.

Gentle Reminder
This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary for my full-time work on it, and aside from ad revenue and copyright fees, the Archive was supported financially last year by fewer than 0.02% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
