It is truly right and just,
our duty and our salvation,
always and everywhere to give you thanks,
Lord, holy Father,
almighty and eternal God,
through Christ our Lord.
For through him you brought us to the knowledge of your truth,
so that by the bond of one faith and one Baptism
we might become his Body.
Through him you poured out your Holy Spirit among all the nations,
so that in a wondrous manner he might prompt
and engender unity in the diversity of your gifts,
dwelling within your adopted children
and filling and ruling the whole Church.
And so, in company with the choirs of Angels.
we praise you, and with joy we proclaim:
