A Doxology

A Doxology from the Antiphonary of Bangor

Bangor Doxology

We worship you, eternal Father.
We call on you, eternal Son.
And we confess you, Holy Spirit,
dwelling in one divine unity.

One God in three persons,
we give you praise and thanks,
and ask that we may join our voices
to sing in your unending praise,
now and forever.

Original in Latin:

123. Post laudate pueri dominum in dominico die.

Te Patrem adoramus aeternum.
Te sempiternum Filium invocamus.
Teque Spiritum Sanctum
in una divinitatis substantia manentem confitemur.

Tibi uni Deo in Trinitate
debitas laudes et gratias referimus,
ut te incessabili voce laudare mereamur,
per aeterna saecula saeculorum.
