Psalm 48:1; 96:1-3; 48:14 [Latin]

KJV translation:

1 Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised in the city of our God, in the mountain of his holiness.

1 O sing unto the Lord a new song: sing unto the Lord, all the earth.

Sing unto the Lord, bless his name; shew forth his salvation from day to day.

Declare his glory among the heathen, his wonders among all people.

14 For this God is our God for ever and ever …

Magnus Dominus et laudabilis nimis in civitate Dei nostri in monte sancto eius.

Cantate Domino, canticum novum, cantate Domino omnis terra, cantate Domino, et benedicite nomini eius. Annuntiate de die in diem salutare eius. Annuntiate inter gentes gloriam eius, in omnibus populis mirabilia eius.

… Hic est Deus, Deus noster in aeternum et in saeculum saeculi …
