Laetentur coeli – May the heavens rejoice!

Laetentur coeli,                                          May the heavens rejoice
exultet terra,                                              and the earth be glad,
a facie Domini quia venit,                           before the Lord
quia venit!                                                  who is coming!


From Psalm 96:11-13

Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice;
let the sea roar, and all that fills it;
let the field exult, and everything in it.
Then shall all the trees of the forest sing for joy
before the Lord; for he is coming,
for he is coming to judge the earth.
He will judge the world with righteousness,
and the peoples with his truth.
