Original text and translations
Laudate nomen Domini, vos servi Domini; ab ortu solis usque ad occasum ejus.
Decreta Dei justa sunt, et cor exhilarant: laudate Deum principes et omnes populi.
(Loose paraphrase of Psalm 112:1 and 112:3, Vulgate)
Praise the name of the Lord, ye servants of the Lord; from the rising of the sun until the same setting.
The decrees of the Lord are just, and [their] heart is glad: Praise the Lord ye princes and all ye people.
