Antiphona
Exaltáte Regem sæculórum in opéribus vestris.
(Tob. 13: 1-23) Magnus es, Dómine, in ætérnum,
et in ómnia sǽcula regnum tuum:
2. Quóniam tu flagéllas, et salvas: dedúcis ad ínferos, et redúcis:
et non est qui effúgiat manum tuam.
3. Confitémini Dómino, fílii Israël,
et in conspéctu géntium laudáte eum:
4. Quóniam ídeo dispérsit vos inter gentes, quæ ignórant eum,
ut vos enarrétis mirabília ejus,
5. Et faciátis scire eos,
quia non est álius Deus omnípotens præter eum.
6. Ipse castigávit nos propter iniquitátes nostras:
et ipse salvábit nos propter misericórdiam suam.
7. Aspícite ergo quæ fecit nobíscum,
et cum timóre et tremóre confitémini illi:
Regémque sæculórum exaltáte in opéribus vestris.
8. Ego autem in terra captivitátis meæ confitébor illi:
quóniam osténdit majestátem suam in gentem peccatrícem.
9. Convertímini ítaque, peccatóres,
et fácite justítiam coram Deo,
credéntes quod fáciat vobíscum misericórdiam suam:
10. Ego autem, et ánima mea
in eo lætábimur.
11. Benedícite Dóminum, omnes elécti ejus:
ágite dies lætítiæ, et confitémini illi.
12. Glória Patri, et Fílio,
et Spirítui Sancto.
13. Sicut erat in princípio, et nunc, et semper,
et in sǽcula sæculórum. Amen.
Exaltáte Regem sæculórum in opéribus vestris.
Extol the King of all ages with your works.
(Tob. 13: 1-23) O Lord, you are great in eternity
and your kingdom is with all ages.
2. For you scourge, and you save. You lead down to the grave, and you bring up again.
And there is no one who can escape from your hand.
3. Confess to the Lord, O sons of Israel,
and praise him in the sight of the nations.
4. For, indeed, he has dispersed you among the Gentiles,
who are ignorant of him, that you may proclaim his wonders,
5. and that you may cause them
to know that there is no other almighty God, except him.
6. He has chastised us because of our iniquities,
and he will save us because of his mercy.
7. Therefore, look upon what he has done for us,
and, with fear and trembling, confess to him.
And extol the King of all ages with your works.
8. But as for me, I will confess him
in the land of my captivity. For he has revealed his majesty within a sinful nation.
9. And so, be converted, you sinners,
and do justice in the presence of God,
believing that he will act in his mercy toward you.
10. But I and my soul
will rejoice in him.
11. Bless the Lord, all you his elect.
Keep days of rejoicing, and confess to him.
12. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit,
13. As it was in the beginning, is now,
and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
Extol the King of all ages with your works.
