Representative Text

Ho anĝeloj! La Sinjoron
Adoradu en ĉiel'!
Ĝoje laŭdu lian gloron

Laŭdu lin, ĉar li regadas,
De la universo reĝ',
Kaj la modoj obeadas
Al konstanta lia leĝ'.

Laŭdu pri la gloro Dia!
Ne pereos lia vort';
Venkos sanktularo lia;
Neniiĝos peko, mort'.
Estu lia glor' laŭdata
De l' ĉiela anĝelar';
Lia nomo adorata
De la tuta kreitar'.
