Laetentur coeli

William Byrd

Laetentur coeli, et exsultet terra.
Jubilate montes laudem, quia dominus noster veniet,
et pauperum suorum miserebitur.
Orietur in diebus tuis justitia et abundantia pacis.  
Let the heavens be glad and let the earth rejoice.
Let the mountains be joyful with praise, because our Lord will come,
and will show mercy to his poor.
In your days, justice and abundance of peace shall arise.

Advent responsory. Isiah 49:13, Psalm 72:7
