Lyrics: Anon

Decantabat populus Israel. Alleluia.
Et universa multitudo Iacob canebat legitime.
Et David cum cantoribus citharam percutiebat
in domo Domini, et laudes Deo canebat.
Alleluia.
Sanctificati sunt, ergo sacerdotes et levitae
et universa multitudo Iacob
deducat arcam fœderis Domini in jubilo.
Et David cum cantoribus citharam percutiebat
in domo Domini, et laudes Deo canebat.
Alleluia.

The people of Israel sang. Alleluia.
And rightly sang the whole congregation of Jacob.
And David struck his harp with the choir
in the house of the Lord, and he sang praises to the Lord.
Alleluia.
They were held holy, so the priests and the Levites
together with the whole congregation of Jacob
brought forth the Ark of the Covenant with rejoicing.
And David struck his harp with the choir
in the house of the Lord, and he sang praises to the Lord.
Alleluia.
