Benedictus dominus deus meus
qui docet manus meas ad prelium
et digitos meos ad bellum
dextera tua domine magnificata est in fortitudine
et in multitudine glorie tue
deposuisti adversarios meos
Omnes gentes plaudite manibus
Jubilate deo in voce exultationis
quoniam dominus excelsus
rex magnus super omnem terram
subiecit populos nobis
et gentes sub pedibus nostris
Blessed be the Lord my God,
Which teacheth my hands to war,
And my fingers to fight.
Thy right hand, O Lord, is become glorious in power:
And in the greatness of thine excellency
Thou hast overthrown them that rose up against me.
O clap your hands, all ye people;
Shout unto God with the voice of triumph.
For the Lord most high is terrible;
He is a great King over all the earth.
He shall subdue the people under us,
And the nations under our feet.
