VII. Duo Seraphim

VII. Duo Seraphim

Duo Seraphim clamabant alter ad alterum: Sanctus, sanctus, sanctus Dominus Deus Sabaoth: plena est omnis terra gloria eius. Tres sunt qui testimonium dant in coelo: Pater, Verbum et Spiritus Sanctus; et hi tres unum sunt:

Two seraphim cried to another: Holy, holy is the God of Hosts: the whole earth is full of His glory. There are three that testify in Heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one.

Sanctus, sanctus, sanctus Dominus Deus Sabaoth: plena est omnis terra gloria eius.

Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts: The whole earth is full of His glory.

VIII. Nisi Dominus

VIII. Nisi Dominus

Nisi Dominus aedificaverit domum, in vanum laboraverunt qui aedificant eam. Nisi Dominus custodierit civitatem, frustra vigilat qui custodit eam. Vanum est vobis ante lucem surgere: surgite postquam sederitis, qui manducatis panem doloris. Cum dederit dilectis suis somnum; Ecce hereditas Domini, filli: merces, fructus ventris. Sicut sagittae in manu potentis: ita filii excussorum. Beatus vir qui implevit desiderium suum ex ipsis: non confundetur cum loquetur inimicis suis in porta.

Unless the Lord builds the house, its builders work in vain. Unless the Lord guards the city, the watchmen keep their vigil in vain. In vain you rise early and stay up late, toiling for food to eat. For He restores those he loves: children are a heritage from the Lord: offspring are his reward. Like arrows in the hand of the mighty, are the children of one’s youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them; he shall not be defeated when he meets his enemies at the gate.

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.
