Lyrics: Anon

Decantabat populus Israel. Alleluia.
Et universa multitudo Iacob canebat legitime. Alleluia.
Et David cum cantoribus citharam percutiebat. Alleluia.
In domo Domini. Alleluia.
et laudes Deo canebat.

The people of Israel sang. Alleluia.
And Jacob rightly sang with the whole multitude. Alleluia.
And David struck his harp with the choir. Alleluia.
In the house of the Lord. Alleluia.
And he sang praises to the Lord.
