Te Deum

This hymn of praise can be traced back to the first centuries of Christendom. During the Middle Ages it was ascribed to Saints Ambrose and Augustine. It has also been attributed to bishop Nicetas of Remesiana. Since the sixth century, it has been recited as part of the Divine Office.

1.  We praise you, O God,
we acknowledge you to be the Lord.

2.  You, the Father everlasting,
all the earth does worship.

3.  To you all the angels,
to you the heavens, and all the powers,

4.  To you the cherubim and seraphim
cry out without ceasing:

5.  Holy, holy, holy,
Lord God of hosts.

6.  Full are the heavens
and the earth of the majesty of your glory.

7.  You, the glorious         
choir of the apostles,

8.  You, the admirable
company of the pro­phets,

9.  You, the white­robed army
of martyrs do praise.

10. You, the holy Church
throughout the world confess:

11. The Father
of incomprehensible majesty;

12. Your adorable, true,
and only Son,

13. And the Holy Spirit
the Paraclete.

14. You, O Christ,
are the King of glory.

15. You are the everlasting
Son of the Father.

16. Having taken upon yourself to deliver man,
you did not disdain the Virgin's womb.

17. Having overcome the sting of death,
you have opened to believers
      the kingdom of heaven.

18. You sit at the right hand of God,
in the glory of the Father.

19. You, we believe,
are the Judge to come.

20. We beseech you, therefore, to help your servants
whom you have redeemed
      with your precious blood.

21. Make them to be numbered with your saints
in glory everlasting.

22. O Lord, save your peo­ple, and bless your inheritance.  

23. And govern them,
and exalt them for ever.

24. Day by day
we bless you.

25. And we praise your name for ever;
yes, for ever and ever.

26. Vouchsafe, O Lord, this day,
to keep us without sin.

27. Have mercy on us, O Lord;
have mercy on us.

28. Let your mercy, O Lord, be upon us;
as we have trusted in you.

29. In you, O Lord, have I trusted:
let me not be confounded for ever.

non confúndar in ætérnum.

Priests add:

V.  The Lord be with you.
R.  And also with you.

Let us pray.

O God, of your mercies there is no number, and of your goodness the treasure is infinite; we render thanks to your most gracious majesty for the gifts you have bestowed upon us, evermore imploring your clemency that as you grant the petitions of them that ask you, you may never forsake them, but may prepare them for the rewards to come.

O God, who have taught the hearts of the faithful by the light of the Holy Spirit, grant us, by the same Spirit, to relish what is right, and evermore to rejoice in his consolation.

O God, who suffer none that hope in you to be afflicted overmuch, but listens graciously to their prayers, we render you thanks, because you have received our supplications and vows; and we most humbly beseech you that we may evermore be protected from all adversities. Through Christ our Lord.

R.   Amen. 
Sacerdotes addunt:

V.  Dóminus vobíscum.
R.  Et cum spíritu tuo.


Deus, cuius misericórdiæ non est númerus, et bonitátis infi­nítus est thesáurus: piíssimæ Maiestáti tuæ pro collátis do­nis grátias ágimus, tuam semper cleméntiam exorántes; ut, qui peténtibus postuláta concédis, eósdem non déserens, ad praémia futúra dispónas.         


Deus, qui corda fidélium Sancti Spíritus illustratióne docuí­sti: da nobis in eódem Spíritu recta sápere; et de eius semper consolatióne gaudére.           
Deus, qui néminem in te sperántem nímium afflígi per­míttis, sed pium précibus præstas audítum: pro postula­tiónibus nostris, votísque suscéptis grátias ágimus, te piíssi­me deprecántes; ut a cunctis semper muniámur advér­sis. Per Christum Dóminum nostrum.                      

R.   Amen.
