  Exsultate
Solo by Benedict Philipp
Lyrics

Exsultate

Music by Robert Prizeman (MCPS)

English words by Henry Burton

There’s a light upon the mountains and the day is at the spring

when our eyes shall see the wonder and the glory it will bring

et laudate Domino in laetitia And praise the Lord in joyfulness

et cantate Domino gloria  And sing ‘Glory’ to the Lord

saecula et saeculorum Alleluia  Through endless ages, Alleluia.

 

Hark, we hear a distant music and it comes with fuller swell

’tis the glorious song of heaven and our fears it will dispel

Exsultate Domino omnis populi Alleluia Rejoice in the Lord, all nations, Alleluia

Jubilate Domino omnis terra Alleluia Be joyful in the Lord, all the earth, Alleluia

Angeli et archangeli, Angels and archangels,

psallite et laudate Sing out and give praise

in hymnis et psalmis et canticis in hymns, in psalms, and in songs.

We hear a distant music – it comes with fuller swell

for the angels here are human, not the shining hosts above

for the drumbeats of the army are the heartbeats of our love

 

Latin translation by Ed.
