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.
