It is truly right and just, our duty and our salvation,
always and everywhere to give you thanks,
Lord, holy Father,
almighty and eternal God.

Towards her, we eagerly hasten, as pilgrims advancing by faith,
rejoicing in the glory bestowed upon those exalted members of the Church
through whom you give us, in our frailty, both strength and good example.
And so, we glorify you with the multitude of Saints and Angels,
as with one voice of praise we acclaim:
