The Epiphany of our Lord: To Thee All Angels Cry Aloud

Te Deum laudamus:
te Dominum confitemur.
Te aeternum Patrem
omnis terra veneratur.

We praise Thee, O God,
we acknowledge Thee to be the Lord.
All the earth doth worship Thee
the Father everlasting.

Tibi omnes Angeli;
tibi caeli et universae Potestates;
Tibi Cherubim et Seraphim
incessabili voce proclamant:
Sanctus, Sanctus, Sanctus,
Dominus Deus Sabaoth.
Pleni sunt caeli et terra
maiestatis gloriae tuae.

To Thee all Angels cry aloud,
the Heavens, and all the Powers therein.
To Thee Cherubin and Seraphin
continually do cry:
Holy, Holy, Holy,
Lord God of Sabaoth;
Heaven and earth are full
of the Majesty of Thy glory.

Te gloriosus Apostolorum chorus,
Te Prophetarum laudabilis numerus,
Te Martyrum candidatus laudat exercitus.
Te per orbem terrarum
sancta confitetur Ecclesia,
Patrem immensae maiestatis:
Venerandum tuum verum et unicum Filium;
Sanctum quoque Paraclitum Spiritum.

The glorious company of the Apostles praise Thee.
The goodly fellowship of the Prophets praise Thee.
The noble army of Martyrs praise Thee.
The holy Church throughout all the world
doth acknowledge Thee;
The Father of an infinite Majesty;
Thine honourable, true and only Son;
Also the Holy Ghost the Comforter.

Tu Rex gloriae, Christe.
Tu Patris sempiternus es Filius.
Tu ad liberandum suscepturus hominem,
non horruisti Virginis uterum.
Tu, devicto mortis aculeo,
aperuisti credentibus regna caelorum.
Tu ad dexteram Dei sedes, in gloria Patris.
Iudex crederis esse venturus.

Thou art the King of Glory O Christ.
Thou art the everlasting Son of the Father.
When Thou tookest upon thee to deliver man
Thou didst not abhor the Virgin's womb.
When Thou hadst overcome the sharpness of death
Thou didst open the Kingdom of Heaven to all believers.
Thou sittest at the right hand of God in the glory of the Father.
We believe that thou shalt come to be our Judge.

Te ergo quaesumus, tuis famulis subveni:
quos pretioso sanguine redemisti.
Aeterna fac cum sanctis tuis in gloria numerari.
Salvum fac populum tuum,
Domine, et benedic hereditati tuae.
Et rege eos, et extolle illos usque in aeternum.
Per singulos dies benedicimus te;
Et laudamus Nomen tuum in saeculum, et in saeculum saeculi.

We therefore pray Thee, help thy servants
whom Thou hast redeemed with Thy precious blood.
Make them to be numbered with Thy Saints in glory everlasting.
O Lord, save Thy people
and bless Thine heritage.
Govern them and lift them up for ever.
 Day by day we magnify Thee;
And we worship Thy Name ever world without end.

Dignare, Domine, die isto sine peccato nos custodire.
Miserere nostri domine, miserere nostri.
Fiat misericordia tua,
Domine, super nos, quemadmodum speravimus in te.
In te, Domine, speravi:
non confundar in aeternum.

Vouchsafe, O Lord to keep us this day without sin.
O Lord, have mercy upon us;
Have mercy upon us.
O Lord, let Thy mercy lighten upon us
As our trust is in Thee.
O Lord, in thee have I trusted;
Let me never be confounded.
