Te Deum
It is one of the first Christians traditional hymns of thanksgiving


Te Deum

We praise Thee, O God: 
We acknowledge Thee to be the Lord. 

All the earth doth worship Thee 
And the Father everlasting.

To Thee all Angels: 
To Thee the heavens and all the Powers therein. 

To Thee the Cherubim and Seraphim: 
Cry with unceasing voice: 
Holy, Holy, Holy: Lord God of Hosts. 

The heavens and the earth are full: 
Of the majesty of Thy glory. 

Thee the glorious choir: 
Of the Apostles. 

Thee the admirable company: 
Of the Prophets. 

Thee the white-robed army of Martyrs: 

Thee the Holy Church throughout all the world: 
Doth acknowledge. 

The Father of infinite Majesty. 
Thine adorable, true: 
And only Son. 

Also the Holy Ghost: 
The Paraclete. 

Thou art the King of Glory: 
O Christ. 

Thou art the everlasting Son: 
Of the Father. 

Thou having taken upon Thee to deliver man: 
Didst not abhor the Virgin's womb. 

Thou having overcome the sting of death: 
Didst open to believers the kingdom of heaven. 

Thou sittest at the right hand of God: 
In the glory of the Father. 

We believe that Thou shalt come: 
To be our Judge. 

We beseech Thee, therefore, help Thy servants: 
Whom Thou has redeemed with Thy precious Blood. 

Make them to be numbered with Thy Saints: 
In glory everlasting. 

Lord, save Thy people: 
And bless Thine inheritance. 

Govern them: and lift them up forever. 
Day by day: we bless Thee. 

And we praise Thy name forever: 
And world without end. 

Vouchsafe, O Lord, this day: 
To keep us without sin. 

Have mercy on us, O Lord: 
Have mercy on us. 

Let Thy mercy, O Lord, be upon us: 
As we have hoped in Thee.

O Lord, in Thee have I hoped: 
Let me never be confounded.
