Psalm 47:1-5 [Latin Vulgate: Psalm 46:2-6]

1 O clap your hands, all ye people; shout unto God with the voice of triumph.

For the Lord most high is terrible; he is a great King over all the earth.

He shall subdue the people under us, and the nations under our feet.

He shall choose our inheritance for us, the excellency of Jacob whom he loved. Selah.

God is gone up with a shout, the Lord with the sound of a trumpet.

Omnes gentes, plaudite manibus; jubilate Deo in voce exsultationis: quoniam Dominus excelsus, terribilis, rex magnus super omnem terram. Subjecit populos nobis, et gentes sub pedibus nostris. Elegit nobis haereditatem suam; speciem Jacob quam dilexit. Ascendit Deus in jubilo, et Dominus in voce tubae.


Omnes gentes, plaudite manibus à 16 (1597), from Symphoniae sacrae I, no. 61, composed by Giovanni Gabrieli (c.1554/1557-1612)
