Mirabantur omnes de his,
quae procedebant de ore Dei.

Editorially supplied optional verses:

Vs.1 Dominus regnavit!
Exsultet terra, laetentur insulae multae.

vidit et contremuit terra.

All wondered at the words,
which proceeded from the mouth of God.

Vs.1 The Lord reigneth!
Let the earth rejoice, let many islands be glad.
Vs.2 His lightnings have shone forth to the world:
the earth saw and trembled.
