    O admirabile commercium: creator generis humani
    animatum corpus sumens, de virgine nasci
    dignatus est: et procedens homo sine semine,
    largitus est nobis suam deitatem.

    O wondrous exchange! the creator of humankind,
    assuming a living body, deigned to be born of a
    virgin: and becoming a man without seed, enriched
    us with his divinity.

    Dixit Dominus Domino meo: sede a dextris meis,
    donec ponam inimicos tuos scabellum pedum
    tuorum.
    Virgam virtutis tuae emittet Dominus ex Sion:
    dominare in medio inimicorum.
    Tecum principium in die virtutis tuae:
    in splendoribus sanctorum ex utero
    ante luciferum genui te.
    Juravit dominus et non penitebit eum: tu es
    sacerdos in aeternum secundum ordinem
    Melchisedech.
    Dominus a dextris tuis
    confregit in die irae suae reges.
    Judicabit in nationibus, implebit ruinas:
    conquassabit capita in terra multorum.
    De torrente in via bibet:
    propterea exaltabit caput.
    Gloria patri…

    The Lord said to my Lord: be seated at my right hand,
    until I make of your enemies your footstool.
    The Lord shall send the rod of your strength out of
    Zion: reign in the midst of your enemies.
    Yours is the foundation in the day of your power:
    in the splendor of holiness, from out of the womb,
    before the morning star I have borne you.
    The Lord has sworn and will not repent: you are a
    priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek.
    The Lord at your right hand
    has destroyed kings in the day of his wrath.
    He will judge the nations, he will fill them with ruins:
    he will shatter heads in the populous land.
    From the torrent on the way shall he drink:
    therefore he will hold his head high.
    Glory be to the Father…

    Nigra sum, sed formosa filia Jerusalem.
    Ideo dilexit me rex et introduxit in cubiculum suum
    et dixit mihi:
    Surge, amica mea, et veni.
    Iam hiems transiit, imber abiit et recessit,
    flores apparuerunt in terra nostra,
    tempus putationis advenit.

    I am dark, but a comely daughter of Jerusalem.
    Therefore the king loved me and led me into his
    chamber and said to me:
    Arise, my love, and come away.
    Now the winter has passed, the rains are over and
    gone,
    and flowers have appeared in our land:
    the time of pruning is come.

    Quando natus es ineffabiliter ex virgine, tunc
    implete sunt scripture: sicut pluvia in vellus
    descendisti, ut salvum faceres genus humanum:
    te laudamus, deus noster.

    By your ineffable birth to a virgin, the scriptures were
    fulfilled: like rain upon the grass you descended to
    save humankind: we praise you, our God.

    Laudate pueri Dominum:
    laudate nomen Domini.
    Sit nomen Domini benedictum,
    ex hoc nunc et usque in seculum.
    A solis ortu usque ad occasum,
    laudabile nomen Domini.
    Excelsus super omnes gentes Dominus,
    et super coelos gloria eius.
    Quis sicut Dominus Deus noster, qui in altis habitat,
    et humilia respicit in coelo et in terra:
    Suscitans a terra inopem
    et de stercore erigens pauperem,
    Ut collocet eum cum principibus,
    cum principibus populi sui?
    Qui habitare facit sterilem in domo,
    matrem filiorum laetantem.
    Gloria patria…

    Praise the Lord, O children:
    praise the name of the Lord.
    May the name of the Lord be blessed,
    from this time forth and for evermore.
    From sunrise until sunset,
    worthy of praise is the name of the Lord.
    High above all nations is the Lord,
    and his glory above the heavens.
    Who is like unto the Lord our God, who dwells on high
    and beholds the humble in heaven and earth:
    raising the helpless from the earth
    and lifting from the dungheap the poor man,
    to place him alongside princes,
    with the princes of his people?
    Who makes the barren women to keep house,
    a joyful mother of children?
    Glory be to the Father…

    Pulchra es, amica mea,
    suavis et decora filia Jerusalem.
    Pulchra es, amica mea, suavis et decora sicut
    Jerusalem: terribilis ut castrorum acies ordinata.
    Averte oculos tuos a me, quia ipsa me avolare
    fecerunt.

    You are beautiful, my love, a sweet and comely
    daughter of Jerusalem.
    You are beautiful, my love, sweet and comely as

    Turn your eyes from me, for they have made me flee.
