Dómine, lábia mea apéries.
  Et os meum annuntiábit laudem tuam.
Lord, open our lips.
  And we shall praise your name.
Psalmus 99:1-5
Redemptos iubet Dominus victoriæ carmen canere” (S. Athanasius).
Iesum Christum, regem regum, veníte, adorémus.
(repeat antiphon*)
2Iubiláte Dómino, omnis terra,*
  servíte Dómino in lætítia;
introíte in conspéctu eius*
  in exsultatióne.
3Scitóte quóniam Dóminus ipse est Deus;†
  ipse fecit nos, et ipsíus sumus,*
  pópulus eius et oves páscuæ eius.
(repeat antiphon*)
4Introíte portas eius in confessióne,†
  átria eius in hymnis,*
  confitémini illi, benedícite nómini eius.
5Quóniam suávis est Dóminus;†
  in ætérnum misericórdia eius,*
  et usque in generatiónem et generatiónem véritas eius.
(repeat antiphon*)
Glória Patri et Fílio*
  et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio et nunc et semper*
  et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Amen.
Iesum Christum, regem regum, veníte, adorémus.*
Invitatory PsalmPsalm 99 (100)
Jesus Christ is the King of kings: come, let us adore him.
(repeat antiphon*)
Rejoice in the Lord, all the earth,
  and serve him with joy.
Exult as you enter his presence.
(repeat antiphon*)
Know that the Lord is God.
He made us and we are his
 – his people, the sheep of his flock.
(repeat antiphon*)
Cry out his praises as you enter his gates,
  fill his courtyards with songs.
Proclaim him and bless his name;
  for the Lord is our delight.
His mercy lasts for ever,
  his faithfulness through all the ages.
(repeat antiphon*)
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit,
  as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be,
  world without end.
Amen.
Jesus Christ is the King of kings: come, let us adore him.*
