Jubilate Deo

Giovanni Gabrieli (c. 1554-1612)

Original Text

English Translation


Jubilate Deo omnis terra,
servite Domino in laetitia.
Introite in conspectu ejus
in exultatione.
Scitote quoniam Dominus ipse est Deus:
ipse fecit nos,
et non ipsi nos—
populus ejus et oves pascue ejus.
Introite portas ejus in confessione,
atria ejus in hymnis.
Confitemini illi,
laudate nomen ejus,
quoniam suavis est Dominus;
in aeternum misericordia ejus,
et usque generationem veritas ejus.

Make a joyful sound to God, all the earth.
Serve the Lord with gladness.
Enter his presence
with rejoicing.
Know that the Lord himself is God:
he himself made us,
and not we ourselves—
his people and the sheep of his pasture.
Enter his gates with acknowledgement,
his courts with hymns.
Be thankful to him,
(and) praise his name,
for the Lord is gracious;
his mercy is forever,
and his truth till (every) generation.


Psalm 99 (100)     

This piece was performed by the SFBC in Italian Canticles, Concerti and Canzoni, May 10, 2003.
