III. Nigra sum Nigra sum sed formosa filiae Jerusalem. Ideo dilexit me Rex, et introduxit me in cubiculum suum et dixit mihi: Surge, amica mea, et veni. Veniam hiems transiit, imber abiit et recessit, flores apparuerunt in terra nostra; tempus putationis advenit.
III. Nigra sum I am dark, but lovely, O daughters of Jerusalem. Therefore the king loved me and brought me into his chamber, and he said to me: Rise up, my love, and come away. See, the winter is past, the rains are over and gone. the flowers appear on our land; and now is the time of reckoning.
IV. Laudate pueri
IV. Laudate pueri
Laudate pueri Dominum: laudate nomen Domini. Sit nomen Domini benedictum, ex hoc nunc, et usque in seculum. A solis ortu usque ad occasum, laudabile nomen Domini. Excelsus super omnes gentes Dominus, et super coelos gloria eius. Quis sicut Dominus Deus noster, qui in altis habitat et humilia respicit in coelo et in terra? Suscitans a terra inopem et de stercore erigens pauperem, ut collocet eum cum principibus, cum principibus populi sui. Qui habitare facit sterilem in domo, matrem filiorum laetantem.
You servants of the Lord, give him praise: praise the name of the Lord. Blessed be the name of the Lord, now and forever. From east to west the Lordâ€™s name is to be praised. The Lord is high above all nations, and his glory above the heavens. Who is the Lord our God, He who dwells on high, and stoops to look at the earth and sky? He raises the poor from the dust, and lifts the needy from the dunghill, So as to set him with princes, with the princes of his people. He gives the barren woman a home, and makes her a happy mother of children.
Gloria Patri, et Filio, et Spiritui Sancto. Sicut erat in principio, et nunc et semper, et in saecula saeculorum. Amen.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
