Lyrics

tollite hostias, et adorate Dominum in atrio sancto eius.
Laetentur coeli, et exultet terra a facie Domini, quoniam venit.

Bring forth your offerings, and adore the Lord, your God, and worship Him in his Holy place.
Rejoice in heaven, exult all ye peoples, for the Lord now comes in glory. Alleluia.
