TEXT:
Exsúltet gáudio pater Justi, gáudeat Pater tuus et Mater tua, et exsúltet quae génuit te.
(Ps.): Quam dilécta tabernácula tua, Dómine virtútum!
concupíscit et déficit ánima mea in átria Dómini.
Glória Pátri, et Fílio, et Spirítui Sáncto. Sicut érat in princípio, et nunc, et semper, et in saécula saeculórum. Amen.

TRANSLATION:
The father of the Just will exult with glee; let Your father and mother have joy; let her who bore You exult.
(Ps.): How lovely is Your dwelling place, O Lord of Hosts! My soul yearns and pines for the courts of the Lord.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost.
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
