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.
By the mystery of the Incarnation,
he has led the human race that walked in darkness
into the radiance of the faith
and he brought those born in slavery to ancient sin
through the waters of regeneration
to make them your adopted children.
Therefore, all creatures of heaven and earth
sing a new song in adoration,
and we, with all the host of Angels,
cry out, and without end acclaim:
