Te Deum Laudamus

 WE praise Thee, O God; we acknowledge Thee to be Our Lord.
Thee, the Father everlasting, all the earth doth worship.
To Thee all Angels; to Thee the Heavens and all the powers.
To Thee the Cherubim and Seraphim continually cry:
Holy, holy, holy, Lord God of hosts. Heaven and earth are full of the
majesty of Thy glory.

The glorious choir of the Apostles praises Thee.
The admirable company of Prophets praises Thee.
The White-robed army of the Martyrs praises Thee.
Thee, the holy Church throughout the world doth confess:

The Father of infinite majesty;
Thine adorable, true, and only Son;
Also, the Holy Ghost, the Comforter.
Thou, O Christ, art the King of glory.
Thou art the everlasting Son of the Father.

Thou, having taken upon Thee to deliver man, didst not disdain the Virgin's womb.
Thou, having overcome the sting of death, hast opened to believers the Kingdom of Heaven.
Thou sittest at the right hand of God, in the glory of the Father.
Thou, we believe, art the judge to come.

We beseech Thee, therefore, to help Thy servants,
whom Thou hast redeemed with Thy Precious Blood.
Make them to be numbered with Thy Saints in glory everlasting.
O Lord save Thy people and bless Thine inheritance.
And govern them, and exalt them forever.

Day by day we bless Thee.
And we praise Thy name forever; yea, forever and ever.
Vouchsafe, O Lord, this day, to keep us from sin.
Have mercy on us. O Lord, have mercy on us.
Let Thy mercy, O Lord, be upon us, as we have trusted in Thee.
In Thee, O Lord, have I trusted; let me not be confounded forever.

Blessed art thou, O Lord, the God of our Fathers.
And worthy to be praised and glorified forever.
Let us bless the Father and the Son, with the Holy Ghost.
Let us praise and magnify Him forever.

A partial indulgence is granted to the faithful, who recite the Te Deum in thanksgiving. But a
plenary indulgence is granted, if the hymn is recited publicly on the last day of the year.
